Samsung M300 at Sprint
Sprint on Wednesday began offering the Samsung M300. The clamshell is a simplified companion to the M510 launched on Monday and brings some style to the often-neglected sphere of entry-level phones. The reflective outer shell hides the LCD until calls or the clock light up the display; a red or silver shell around the phone also lends polish and stops the phone from catching on clothes. Bluetooth is standard; Sprint notes the clamshell trims price through a VGA camera as well as stripping the EVDO broadband and microSD slot of the M510.
Though unlisted on Sprint's site at the time of posting, the M300 is due to reach the company's online and retail stores today at a price of $30 when bought in tandem with a two-year contract. The cost of the phone without a contract is unavailable.
