Sprint Samsung Conquer 4G can be pre-ordered for just $19.99 at RadioShack
The Samsung Conquer 4G is Sprint’s most affordable smartphone that has 4G WiMax connectivity built in, and it’s set to go on sale this Sunday, on August 21. Sprint’s official retail price for the device is $99.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) with a new two-year contract.
Yesterday we brought you news that RadioShack was getting ready to sell the Conquer 4G, and cheaper than Sprint. Back then we thought that the retailer would charge $69.99 for the handset when it would become available.
However, it looks like RadioShack has, in the meantime, decided that even $69.99 was way too much to pay for this smartphone, and has subsequently cut the price all the way down to an almost unbelievable $19.99! Yes, you still need to commit to Sprint for two years, but you’re basically getting a 4G device for almost nothing. And that with it not even being on the market yet.
You can in fact go to RadioShack now and pre-order a Conquer 4G at this price, and if you were looking for a cheap 4G phone to use on Sprint’s network, we suggest you go and do just that. Although if you’re not in a terrible hurry, you may also choose to wait a few weeks – at this rate, we expect third-party retailers such as RadioShack to offer the Conquer 4G for free on contract in no time.
And that, of course, is very good news for you, the potential customer here. If only all smartphones were free…
Anyway, the Conquer 4G has a 1 GHz processor, a 3.5-inch HVGA (480×320) touchscreen, a 3.2 MP rear camera, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, a preinstalled 2 GB microSD card, Wi-Fi, GPS, stereo Bluetooth, and a 1500 mAh battery. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
