Sprint TV Phone Leaked On FCC

The FCC today approved the Samsung SPH-M250. A label in the documents confirm this mystery phone is for Sprint. The phone is clearly a clamshell model with Bluetooth. After careful comparison of the test photos to Samsung models, it appears to be a version of the B250, a TV phone Samsung launched in Korea. The B250 has a lid that rotates 90 degrees to watch video in landscape mode. It is possible that this phone is simply a video focused EV-DO handset that will present Sprint's streaming video in landscape. However because the phone was only approved on 1900 MHz band and is not dual-band like Sprint's other handsets, there is likely something more to this phone. It is likely that the phone is 1900 only because of some antenna issues with a mobile TV technology in the 2.5 GHz band and that Sprint will either test or even launch live-TV service with this phone. Sprint has already been running mobile TV trials using TDtv technology from IP Wireless in their 2.5 GHz spectrum.

M250 = Uproar 2??
I assume someone just saw the M250 model number - and that it was coming to Sprint - and (incorrectly) assumed that it was the Uproar 2 since the original Uproar was the M100.
But I'm 99% sure that the M2...
