A large Samsung banner on the front of the CTIA convention center shows an unannounced Samsung touch phone. The photo perfectly matches leaked photos that are rumored to be the M810, a successor to the Instinct. The M810 appears similar, but more rounded than the Instinct design. Although the carrier logo is temporarily covered on the banner, rumors place the M810 with Sprint, and the color scheme of the interface is consistent with Sprint.

This isn't the Instinct 2

This isn't the M810 (Instinct 2) but instead the S30 (Instinct Mini).

Nice Find VDubb!
It is the M810.

I don't know where this "mini" stuff keeps coming from. If such a phone is coming, it's not the M810, and it's not coming soon.

M810 = S30

Okay, once and for all, the SPH-M810 is the new Instinct, and its official marketing name is "Instinct S30".

"Mini" was internal name

This is NOT the Instinct II, this is more or less a subtle refresh with no functionality added to cater to entry level buyers wanting a touch screen until the true Instinct II (codenamed Samsung DASH) pops up at the end of summer.
I don't understand why it was ever called that. It is NO smaller. Not one bit. I've held one, and put it side-by-side. It's more rounded, but no smaller.

Yep, Instinct 2

I soon as I saw that picture I know that had to be a new Instinct. Just hope they don't screw this one up like they did the first. Lets hope it uses a different browser. I hope it has a lot more and better features too.
The Instinct is bad?

Oh wait, you have the Strom as your pic. Makes sense now.

Anyway, if it weren't for the Pre, I'd be pumped for this.

The instinct 2 is such a copier and poser. It changed its look the exact same way the iPhone 3G did. The first iPhone was square. Then the second iPhone was rounded off just like how the instinct 2 copied. Samsungs needs help being orginal
