Samsung M510 at Sprint
Sprint on Monday began carrying the Samsung M510. The clamshell serves as a shrunken version of the M610 released late last year, trading a slight gain in thickness (from 0.47 to 0.64 inches) in exchange for smaller overall dimensions. The camera is the only other main sacrifice with a fixed 1.3-megapixel replacing the 2-megapixel swiveling sensor on the larger model. A microSD slot handles music and video clips while support exists for assistive GPS.
Samsung's device is capable of many of the features on Sprint's network, including EVDO broadband as well as streaming Internet TV and the American provider's online music store. Sprint offers the phone online today for $130 with a two-year contract or for $280 without the obligation.
