Sprint and Samsung Make Conquer 4G Official
Sprint and Samsung today announced the Conquer 4G, a new Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone that works on Sprint's WiMax 4G network. It has a 3.5-inch HVGA (320 x 480) display, 1GHz processor, and offers a 3.2 megapixel main camera with flash, and 1.3 megapixel user-facing camera. The Conquer 4G will include Sprint iD, which offers users bundled themes and software for their Android devices. The Conquer 4G will have the mobile hotspot feature, as well as GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and support for microSD cards up to 32GB. The FCC approved this handset in April with CDMA in the ESMR 800MHz band, 850MHz band, and the 1900MHz band, making it a tri-band CDMA device. The ESMR support means the Conquer 4G will eventually be able to use voice services on Sprint's 800MHz spectrum when it transitions iDEN off that spectrum. The Conquer 4G will be available for $99.99 after rebate starting on August 21.
