Samsung Touchscreen Phone Bound for Sprint
Information about the Samsung M800 - a CDMA EVDO version of the F490 - has become available. It appears to be a slim bar-style phone that features a large screen with touch controls to interact with the menus and applications similar to the iPhone or LG Voyager. Published regulatory filings indicate it will support EVDO Rev A, possibly making it one of Sprint's first handsets to support that technology. It drops the 5 megapixel camera found on the F490 to a 2 megapixel camera, but has stereo Bluetooth support, a microSD memory card slot and GPS. Neither Sprint nor Samsung has confirmed any details.

Oct 20, 2015

May I ask
As far as why? Probably the major factor in basic business, price. It could also be that Sprint wanted Samsung to add the QChat instead of the higher end camera.
When I know I will be taking photos I care about, I do often take a standalone digital camera.
Rev. A = HPPTT = QChat = Nextel Direct Connect
Just a thought. But it sounds like a sweet ass phone to me with or with out a 5.0 camera.
here comes the voyager killer!!!!!!!
