Sprint unveils exclusive UpStage phone in red

updated 10:45 am EDT, Wed June 13, 2007

Samsung UpStage in Red

Sprint this morning capitalized on the success of the Samsung UpStage by releasing a special, red-tinted version of the company's music phone, which has now officially become the company's best-selling Internet and media device at the same time. Like the black original, the red version of the dual-sided device includes a 1.3-megapixel camera, a microSD slot for up to 2GB of tracks, stereo Bluetooth, and mobile Internet through EVDO; it also bundles the battery wallet that protects the phone while also extending its call time to over six hours and music to 16.

No price increase follows the change in color, says Sprint. The red UpStage sells for $100 when part of a fresh two-year contract and sells for $300 outside of the commitment. It should be available online and in Sprint's shops by June 18th.
