HTC Snap for Sprint

Sprint today confirmed that its version of the HTC Snap will ship this month. A close variant of the reference phone that was unveiled in April, its version switches to CDMA for calls, adds EVDO-based 3G and changes some of the visual design without affecting the QWERTY keyboard. It keeps the trademark Inner Circle feature for showing messages only from the owner's most important contacts but extends the GPS to work with Sprint's navigation service. The 2-megapixel camera and Wi-Fi have also been preserved in the adaptation.

The phone is already listed as in stock at Best Buy for its full, unsubsidized $520 price. Sprint adds that the Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone will reach the carrier's own stores on June 21st for $149 on a two-year plan.
