Andrew R. Hickey







Released in June, and announced at the CTIA Wireless show just months before, the Samsung Instinct took the touch-screen smartphone arena by storm, taking direct jabs at Steve Jobs and his Apple iPhone.







The Instinct, which runs on Sprint's network, ties in functions like visual voice-mail, corporate and consumer POP3 e-mail and multimedia capabilities that let users play music while surfing the mobile Web, texting or playing games. The Instinct comes to the table with a 2.0 megapixel camera with video recording, expandable microSD memory of 8 GB, GPS, live TV, Bluetooth capabilities, an integrated world clock, SMS voice and text messaging, picture caller ID and Sprint Mobile Sync.





The Instinct measures 2.17 x 4.57 x 0.49 inches and weighs in at 4.5 ounces, and runs about $130 with a contract and rebates. The Instinct was a hot seller, beating Sprint's expectations and sparking worries of a Samsung Instinct shortage.
