New Sprint phones dated

A leaked document from wireless provider Sprint reveals the release dates for a number of new handsets, including the HTC Touch Pro2 and the previously unknown Samsung Instinct S50. Other devices scheduled for a September 3rd launch include an orange LG Rumor2, as well as the entry-level Samsung M240 and M330. The Touch Pro2 will run on Sprint's CDMA network and sport Windows Mobile 6.1. Users interface via a 3.6-inch, 800x480 touchscreen and HTC's TouchFLO UI. There is otherwise a 3.2-megapixel camera, a GPS sensor and a Wi-Fi connection.

While specs for the Samsung Instinct S50 are less defined as the handset hasn't been spotted in the past, it is expected to improve on the current Instinct S30 by upping the 2-megapixel camera to a 5-megapixel unit, new styling and a 3.2-inch, 320x480-pixel touchscreen.

Pricing of the handsets at Sprint remains unknown, however.

Competitor T-Mobile will add the Touch Pro2 to its lineup on August 12th. Canada's Telus is already offering the handset.
