Sprint delay Instinct Mini
A new, previously unseen handset, the Samsung Instinct Mini, is coming to wireless provider Sprint, BGR says in a new leak. Little is known about the new phone, other than that it will be sold alongside current Instinct models and will be available in two colors: copper or graphite. The phone will only support EVDO Rev 0 data networks, however, and is due for a release at the carrier on April 19th. More information about the new phone is expected soon, and may surface as early as next week at Mobile World Congress in Spain.
In related Sprint news, the date of the Palm Treo Pro's arrival has been delayed indefinitely as of yesterday, but the the same source as for the Instinct Mini now names March 15th as the tentative launch date for the Windows Mobile handset. Reportedly, the handset is not passing Sprint's standard testing process.
The same report has the LG Rumor 2 coming to Sprint in mid-March. The handset will be available in black and blue. The LG LX370 slider will arrive either in April or May with a moderate amount of features. Finally, the HTC Cedar QWERTY candybar is set to come to Sprint in June.
