Verizon wasn't the only carrier to announce a Samsung phone on Tuesday. Sprint also broke the news that it had unveiled the Samsung M240 over the weekend. With a simple flip-phone design and not even a camera, the M240 focuses on communication rather than multimedia.
Inside you'll find speaker-independent voice dialing, text messaging, a speakerphone, a 500-contact phone book, Sprint's wireless backup service, a voice memo recorder, and basic personal organizer options. The M240 is $19.99 with service.
