The Samsung Instinct features a 3.1 inch touch screen (240x432px resolution) with localized tactile feedback called haptics, which allow the virtual QWERTY keypad and other operations to become a sensory experience.
The new Samsung device also offers a Voice to Action button providing many functions using voice activation including call, text, picture messaging, traffic, movie, sports, news and search.
The Instinct is Sprint’s first EV-DO Rev A consumer-centric handset and goes head to head with the Apple iPhone.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
