Sprint has just released the highly-anticipated Samsung Conquer 4G, which is the carrier’s cheapest 4G Android smartphone at only $99.99 with a new two-year agreement and after a $50 mail-in rebate.Android fans who have yet to order their Conquer 4G can take advantage of Walmart's great deal for the device, as the retailer is offering the smartphone for free with a new two-year contract.
In addition, RadioShack is also offering the Conquer 4G starting today for only $70 with a new two-year agreement.
Although Sprint made the Conquer 4G cheap, RadioShack and Walmart are making the smartphone even more affordable.
“The price of Samsung Conquer 4G makes Sprint’s 4G speeds accessible to more customers than ever. We are proud to deliver this dynamic device at a great value without sacrificing must-have technology. Our customers can really do more for less when this ultra-affordable 4G device is paired with the great value of our unlimited data calling plans,” said Fared Adib, vice president of Product Development, Sprint.
Samsung Conquer 4G is powered by Google's Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) platform and is delivered with Sprint ID service.
The smartphone is equipped with a single core 1GHz processor and features a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen.
Aimed at those who are looking for high peak data transfer speeds, the smartphone offers 3G/4G hotspot capability that shares a connection with up to 5 Wi-Fi devices.
Obviously, customers who wish to take advantage of this capability should know that it requires an optional Mobile Hotspot add-on.
Furthermore, the handset sports a mediocre 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and zoom, as well as 1.3-megapixel front facing camera for video chats.
Other highlights of the smartphone include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and built-in GPS, microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to a 32GB, 2GB card included) and Stereo Bluetooth.
