Samsung Instinct HD arrives for Sprint

Samsung Instinct HD at Sprint

Sprint today provided a significant hardware upgrade to its Samsung Instinct line for the first time since launch by releasing the Instinct HD. It earns its title through enough processing power and a video output that lets it show photos and videos at HD resolution on a TV; Sprint doesn't say whether it uses HDMI and whether it supports 720p or 1080p. A 5-megapixel camera and a much improved Opera Mobile 9.7 web browser are similarly new.

The jointly developed Samsung/Sprint operating system, EVDO Revision A 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi port over from the original Instinct and give it access to the same software features, such as navigation, Visual Voicemail and Sprint's Internet TV streaming.

In spite of its non-smartphone design, the Instinct HD is set to be one of Sprint's costlier phones and should cost $250 when attached to a two-year contract. It will ship to Best Buy stores first, on September 27th, and reach Sprint's own stores by October 11th.
