Before, Sprint had introduced the RIM BlackBerry 8830 World Edition for its business customers. But being a smartphone, it wasn't much use for the other people who just travelled for leisure and need a world phone that's not a blackberry. Samsung Ace seems to be an answer to their prayers! The Ace will use Sprint's CDMA network for all domestic calls, and then you can use the included SIM card to make calls on GSM networks abroad. In addition, the SIM is unlocked so you're not restricted to the one packaged with the smartphone. That means travelers can buy a local SIM card at their destination and save some money on calling rates.
The look and appeal of the Samsung Ace bears a notable resemblance to the first BlackJack. It's slightly taller, narrower, and has a redesigned more user-friendly QWERTY keyboard The smartphone runs a Windows Mobile 6 Standard Edition with Windows Live integration and has Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and push e-mail. It's also a EV-DO capable handset with support for Sprint TV and On Demand.
And even better news is that The Samsung Ace for Sprint is available now for a decent price tag of $199.99 with a two-year contract (after rebates and discounts). Will this be the saving grace for the depleting Sprint sales?? Only time will tell, but looks like the company is definitely trying to hold on to its customer base by taking note of their needs!
