Samsung SPH-M930 Approved by FCC to Ride Boost Mobile

July 28, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

An Android slider is making its way into the market after passing through the FCC examination hall. It’s the Samsung SPH-M930 (we know that the name’s a mouthful, but that’s bound to change).

The phone’s got a slide-out 4-row QWERTY keyboard which users with quick fingers would like. The phone’s headed towards Boost Mobile which provides prepaid wireless services, and the Samsung phone seems like a capable addition to the carrier’s growing line of Android devices.

The M930 runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a 1GHz MSM8655 SoC from Qualcomm for power. The screen is a 3.2 inch HVGA with a resolution of 480×320.

Not a display to be proud of, nor is the two megapixel camera. The device will support  CDMA and EvDO 850 and 1900 bands but the FCC filings doesn’t mention any 4G capabilities.

The specifications won’t exactly have you jumping on your toes, but the device does look to be a good accommodation for the mid-range value. Moreover, for a pre-paid carrier with sinking monthly bills, the M930 is not a bad choice.

The phone’s quite affordable and marginally better than other similar products within its range, so if you are thinking of having one, do let us know.
