Sprint offering Samsung Array, an affordable keyboard phone

The entry-level handset is equipped with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 2-megapixel camera.

Sprint's Samsung Array Sprint

Initially available on Boost Mobile, the Samsung Array has made its way onto Sprint today.

Offered at $19.99 after a two-year contract and mail-in rebate, this feature phone has a sliding four-row QWERTY keyboard, a 2.4-inch screen, and a 2-megapixel camera in the rear.

It's powered by a 480MHz CPU and a 1,000mAh battery, which roughly translates to a reported talk time of 4 hours.

When CNET's own Brian Bennett got his hands on the phone, the device's build aesthetic was reminiscent of a Sidekick, and its screen's low resolution was unimpressive.

For commitment-phobes who are interested in the device but not in a carrier contract, Boost is selling it for $60.
