Sprint's summer of hot phone releases continues. In addition to the Palm Pre and just-announced RIM BlackBerry Tour 9630, the carrier has confirmed that it will offer the HTC Snap on June 21 for $149.99 with a two-year contract. (This news surfaced last week, but I'm just catching up after being out for a couple of days.)

The Snap, which debuted at CTIA 2009, is a messaging-centric smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard and a feature called Inner Circle that lets you prioritize messages based on your preferences. It also offers Microsoft Direct Push Technology for real-time e-mail delivery and automatic synchronization with your Outlook calendar, tasks, and contacts via Exchange Server, as well as support for POP3 and IMAP e-mail accounts.

Aside from the messaging options, the Windows Mobile 6.1 device includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 2-megapixel camera, a microSD expansion slot, and more. The HTC Snap for Sprint will also be available from Best Buy for an unsubsidized price of $519.
