If you’ve been planning to join the Android bandwagon but have been shun away by too costly offerings from various carriers, Sprint is offering you a chance to finally get your first Android smartphone. Sprint just made the Express smartphone today via Sprint Telesales, online at sprint.com or from any Sprint retail store. The Sprint Express phone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Sprint ID customizable user interface, full QWERTY keyboard, 2.6-inch capacitive touch display, 3.2MP camera with flash and camcorder, 3G hotspot capability, Wi-Fi b/g/n, and 1500mAh Li-Ion battery. As mentioned, it’s available for only $19.99 with a new-line activation, on an Everything Data Plan with $10 Premium Data add-on and of course two-year agreement after a $50 mail-in rebate. Additionally, while the phone has Wi-Fi hotspot capability, Sprint says that it requires additional $29.99 per month to have the feature enabled. Once activated, the service will support up to five Wi-Fi devices connected simultaneously.
