About the same time last year, Sprint sent a some of us bloggers the Samsung A920 phone with free voice and data service. Thing was that I could never get music downloads to work (from their Sprint Music Store), and even after visiting one of their retail stores in Buffalo, they still came out clueless. The phone was eventually chucked aside, since I had my Sidekick phone which did everything I wanted. All they requested was to give my honest opinions about the experience, which I did. They didn’t even ask for the phone back.
This year, Sprint is back with the Sprint Ambassador Program (Phase III?), and this time they are offering two phones for us to choose from. The first one is the Samsung M610 (see images or specs). The second phone though, is more interesting. They have it under wraps and you can see the teaser site at redefiningflip.com
Thanks to the wisdom of the crowds, we are able to see just what this “redefining” concept phone is (as shown above).
If sources are right, Sprint is bringing out the Samsung M620, also known as the Flipper. Now that the announcement has been made at CTIA, Engadget Mobile (article removed) and SlashPhone have given us a clear picture of what it is, as well as a video of how it works.
Yes, it’s a double-sided phone.
