You guys mentioned a slew of new EV-DO handsets comming in the article on the front page.

Any more details on these devices?

It's a raft, even, of new evdo phones. I am curious, definitely.

The Sanyo 8400 is one. Samsung A720, M250 and M500... that's all that springs to mind at the moment, although there may be more.

We wrote about M250 a month ago:

I don't know as much about the M500, except that it seems to be the next in that series (for Sprint). It has Bluetooth and EVDO... that's about all I know.

I can say that it does NOT appear to be anything like Samsung's newer clamshell TV phone design (P900, P910, B410, B4100, B4150) nor is it anything like the SCH-B500 (7 megapixel monster). It seems to be a tamer clamshell design.

Recently I spoke to a guy who was from Korea, and he had the june M250. I got a chance to look at it up close, and I gotta say that i wasn't very impressed. It was fairly bulky and the design was uninspiring. I didn't get to see it when it was powered on, though.

The SCH-B250 is quite bulky given that it has a DMB reciever in it. The M250 will likely be thinner.

Rich, I saw the M500 FCC filing as well, but no more info was there. Do you know if it is for this year?

Also, why does it seem that Sprint utilizes Samsung for EV-DO handsetst to a level that they do not for Sanyo and especially LG? I mean, Samsung has already released 4 EV-DO enabled handsets for Sprint, with 4 more in the pipeline (A720/i830/M250/M500). Sanyo has released two in the past, while only selling one since December. Their pipeline only seems to consist of the 8400 and not much else. LG is even worse, with only one EV-DO handset and only one planned for Q4 (most likely chocolate). Is Samsung Sprint's go to man for technolog...
