Sprint has just announced the Samsung Conquer 4G, the first WiMax 4G smartphone that gets just under the $100 mark. This is great news for the low-end market and consumers who don’t need all the bells and whistles of high-end Android smartphones. But that doesn’t mean that Sprint users will be excluded from all the goodies: the Samsung Conquer 4G runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the latest version of the smartphone software, sports a 1GHz processor and runs on Sprint’s moderately fast 4G network.
The Conquer 4G has front and rear cameras, so you can take stills, videos, self portraits and make video calls. It also comes with Sprint ID, which is both good and bad news depending on your experience with Android and your app preferences. If you’re new to the Android platform, however, it could be a good way to start your experience with some app and feature bundles.
Here are the details:
The Conquer 4G becomes available August 21 for just $100 with a new, two-year contract and a qualifying plan. Those looking for a feature-packed, budget smartphone probably can’t go wrong with this device.
