Sprint Samsung Conquer 4G Unboxing (video)

Man, do times change fast. Just over a year ago we saw the first US-market WiMax phone with dual cameras and video chat, Sprint’s Evo 4G. Evo was a top-shelf, hot commodity phone with an insane PR/marketing campaign behind it. Fast forward not quite 18 months and we’ve got Samsung’s Conquer 4G, a WiMax phone with dual cameras that slots nicely into the middle of Sprint’s smartphone pack with a $99 on contract launch price.

Running Android 2.3 on a 1GHz processor, Conquer packs a lot of features into a thin, featherlight (4.1 ounces) body. If you can live with its “small” 3.5-inch, 320 x 480 pixel display, Conquer is more than happy to offer up dual cameras (3.2 MP / 0.3 MP), 3G/4G/Wi-Fi connectivity, the usual range of multimedia features, and a decently nice feeling plastic body at a price point that should drop to “free with contract” via third-party retailers not too long after it ships on August 21st.

Is there a market for a mid-range phone with a less-than-enormous display? I should think so! Will Conquer conquer said market? Let’s start finding out by getting ‘er out of the box.
