The second phone announced today by Sprint at the 2008 CTIA convention in Las Vegas was the Samsung Instinct, which seems to represent Sprint's response to AT&T's iPhone.
Unlike Apple's iPhone, the Instinct's touchscreen comes equipped with localized tactile feedback, called haptics, which allow the virtual QWERTY keypad and other operations made on the screen to become a sensory experience.
Other features of the Samsung Instinct include a 2.0 megapixel camera with camcorder, Visual Voicemail, POP3 email, expandable microSD memory of up to 8GB, stereo Bluetooth 2.0, full HTML browser, Phone as Modem and Sprint Mobile Sync.
The box will contain a charger, USB cable, 3.5mm headphones with built-in microphone, 2GB microSD card and leather case with stylus.
Sprint has not yet determined the price of the Samsung Instinct.
Update: Sprint to launch the Samsung Instinct on June 20th. Read More...
