It's Pink Cell Phone Season Again

Valentine's Day is almost upon us, and with that the start of the pink cell phone season. From now until Mother's Day we witness the convergence of technology and pinkness, as mobile communications shows its feminine side. Would you like to put a little fashion flair in your hand or that of your significant other? What you need is a cell phone that is a vision in pink.

This year we're featuring the high-tech, high-touch Samsung Instinct Pink for Sprint PCS. Yes, this is normally an expensive luxury phone. But it can be yours at a huge discount when you order it with an Everything Plan or Talk/Message/Data Share Plan from Sprint PCS as your wireless service. Two women in the same family can even get TWO discounted Samsung Instinct Pinks when they order it with the appropriate family plan.

Samsung has taken the cellphone world by storm... but not BlackBerry Storm... with its tactile touchscreen technology built into advanced mobile phones like the Samsung Instinct. It's a phone. It's a music player. It's a Web browser. It's a head to head competitor to the Apple iPhone. Plus it's free and, oh, so very pink.

The high definition touch screen display measures 240 x 432 pixels and offers a QWERTY keyboard through an on-screen virtual touch keyboard. Motion sensing technology will change the orientation of the screen from portrait to landscape automatically as you rotate the phone. The pictures you take will display in stunning definition using the built-in 2.0 Megapixel digital camera that also runs as a camcorder. Make movies if you want to. The video capture is limited only by the amount of available memory, which is expandable using plug-in microSD memory cards.

The Samsung Instinct Pink may look like a fashion accessory, but this phone is built for business as well as pleasure. Sprint's EVDO cellular broadband network offers download speeds up to 3.1 Mbps. That's fast enough to enjoy Sprint TV and streaming or downloadable Sprint Music. Search the Web at broadband speeds without having to constantly hunt for a WiFi hotspot. The Internet goes where you go. A full HTML Web Browser is built-in with support for the tactile user interface experience on the Instinct's touch screen. The email client will synchronize over the air, via Bluetooth or USB cable. Text messaging features 2-way threaded view. Multimedia messaging includes both pictures and video messages.

There's more, including built-in GPS to take advantage of Sprint Navigation services, Bluetooth for standard wireless phone headsets and music streaming to compatible wireless stereo headsets, voice driven menus, speakerphone, voice memo capability and more. It's a very high tech thing of beauty.
