Sprint dispatches army of new entry-level clamshells

Sprint seems to have a reputation of releasing a whole lot of entry-level phones for the everyday user, rather than catering to the more tech-savvy market that can’t get enough of the latest gadgets and features. This trend is continuing with the service provider’s announcement of five new additions to their line-up, all of which have rather bland deets, but come dirt cheap (with contracts, of course).

It doesn’t come much cheaper than free, and that’s exactly how much you’ll need to dish out to get the Sprint CDM-120 (UTStarcom CDM-7025), which comes with a 1.5-inch color display and speakerphone. A pleasant surprise is that it also supports MP3 ringtones.

If Samsung is more your cup of tea, then you can take a look at the SPH-A580 with greyscale external display, voice dialing, 1xRTT, and a $30 asking price. Bump your budget to $50 to get the Sanyo SCP-3100 with VGA camera, 1.8-inch color display, and a variety of colors to choose from. For $80, you actually get a decent handset in the LG LX350, which features Bluetooth, a 1.3 MP camera, and a color external OLED display.

They’ve resurrected the UTStarcom PM-8920 as well. The handset first launched in 2004 still comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera, but this time around carries a $20 price tag.
