Sprint Express video overview arrives on YouTube ahead of official announcementAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
We're not even a week out from seeing the Sprint Express and its portrait QWERTY frame for the first time, but today the still-unannounced Android handset is making news again. This time, though, the source of the leak is none other than Sprint itself. A new video overview showing some of the hardware and software features of the Express has been posted on Sprint's official YouTube channel, despite the fact that the Express hasn't been officially introduced. The description for the video reads as follows:
"The Express from Sprint combines the convenience of a Blackberry with the freedom and rich functionality of a Droid. It comes with the latest Android OS and Sprint ID, which takes customization to a whole new level. Sprint ID helps you get the most out of your phone by allowing you to choose a total experience for your device. It's about customizing your phone with the information you want in the palm of your hand."
The clip doesn't reveal much about the Express that we didn't already know, but hey, we're not going to complain about someone hitting the "Public" button a tad too early and giving us a peek at an unannounced device. As a quick refresher, the Express is a portrait QWERTY device with a 2.6-inch display, 600MHz processor, 3.2-megapixel camera, and 1500mAh battery. It's rumored to be going on sale on November 18th for $19.99 on-contract with Sprint ID and Android 2.3 in tow. If that information holds up, expect to hear an announcement from Sprint any time now. The official overview from Sprint is embedded below, though it's unclear how long it'll be before someone realizes the error and yanks it, so you'd better get to watching!
