Samsung Conquer 4G offers WiMAX for under $100

Samsung has outed its latest 4G smartphone, the CDMA/WiMAX Samsung Conquer 4G, and the first to land at under $100 from the get-go. Built around Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 3.5-inch 320 x 480 touchscreen and a 1GHz MSM8655 Snapdragon processor, the Conquer 4G will be $99.99 with a new, two-year agreement. As the display might suggest, the rest of the Conquer 4G's specs don't exactly live up to flagship WiMAX smartphones we've seen before. There's a 3.2-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video calls, WiFi b/g/n and GPS, along with a microSD card slot with a 2GB card pre-loaded. Mobile Hotspot functionality is supported, for up to five simultaneous clients, and the whole thing measures in at 4.57 x 2.38 x 0.46 inches and weighs 4.1 oz. Samsung reckons the Conquer 4G will run for up to six hours of talktime on a single charge of the standard 1,500 mAh battery, which is decent enough. We're not entirely impressed by the screen resolution, but otherwise you're getting a fair amount for your money when the Conquer 4G arrives on August 21. [gallery]

Before we continue, have a look at our review of said Nexus S 4G device and come back with full knowledge.

Google, Sprint and Samsung are examining these reports and though we have not yet been able to identify any specific causes, we are working to determine exactly what our customers are experiencing."

Motorola TRIUMPH Announced

What lies beneath is the first really fantastic Android device offered by Motorola for Virgin Mobile. In fact it's the first Motorola device EVER offered on the carrier, so your ears should be perking up if you're a fan of the big white-teeth grin, if you know what I mean. Virgin Mobile is known for its flexibility, and the TRIUMPH is no exception, coming in on a no contract plan.
