Samsung and Sanyo for Sprint

Samsung and Sanyo for Sprint

Sprint has introduced to its lineup two new cell phones that emphasize multimedia features. The Samsung MM-A880 offers such goodies as a 1.3-megapixel camera, an integrated media player for streaming video and audio, text and multimedia messaging, voice commands and dialing, a speakerphone, polyphonic ring tones, and a wireless Web browser. And like the Samsung MM-A800, the MM-A880 supports the ability to send camera phone pictures directly to a printer via a USB cable. No software is needed, but the USB cable is sold separately, of course.

The carrier also has rolled out the Sanyo MM-8300. An upgrade to the Sanyo PM-8200 from last summer, the new phone looks similar and has about the same features. This time, however, you get a 1.3-megapixel camera and access to Sprint's multimedia service. There's still no Bluetooth with either model, but what else is new? Like we always say, cell phones are only as good as the calls they make, so check back soon for full reviews.
