Smartphone fans in the US must be in a hurry as four more hotties have been rolled out in the last weekend. All of them are available for consumer purchase on both MaBell and Now Network. It’s pleasing for 3G and 4G users as BlackBerry and Samsung have come up with the new devices carried by Sprint and AT&T. The four Smartphones released are: BlackBerry Bold 9930, BlackBerry Torch 9850, BlackBerry Torch 9810 and Samsung Conquer 4G.

 

BlackBerry Bold 9930

This 3G CDMA/EV-DO phone is carried by Sprint joined with CDMA rival Verizon Wireless. It is a world-phone with an SIM card slot and has 3G HSPA and GSM coverage. It is similar to the GSM-only 9900 for AT&T and T-Mobile USA. The BlackBerry 7 OS device comes with the classic BlackBerry form factor with a front facing full QWERTY keyboard and a touchscreen. The handset priced at $ 200 is now available on Sprint’s website.

BlackBerry Torch 9850

The only full touchscreen BlackBerry device which is the first on the Now Network carries a price of $ 150 on a two-year contract. The handset sports a 3.7-inch WVGA resolution display and runs BlackBerry 7 OS.

BlackBerry Torch 9810

This is an updated version of the BlackBerry Torch and is available on the AT&T network. It features a 1.2 GHz CPU, Liquid Graphics display and includes ease of email, messaging and BBM. The BlackBerry 7 OS device is now available at $ 50 on the carrier’s 4G HSPA + network. It comes with a portrait-oriented screen that slides over a full QWERTY keyboard that is not spacious as of Bold 9900/9930 series.

Samsung Conquer 4G

The more budget-friendly smartphone priced at $99 with a contract is supported by Sprint’s 4G WiMax network, which boasts a ten-time speed than its 3G CDMA/EV-DO network. The Android 2.3-based device comes with a 3.5-inch HVGA display, dual cameras: a 3.2 megapixel snapper at rear and a shooter at front, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor and so on.
