November 11, 2011, By Leo Xavier

Sprint already has a number of Android messaging handsets with a physical keyboard on their network. Now, the latest info suggests that the carrier might add a new inexpensive device to that line-up.

According to a leak, which comes to us courtesy of Android Central, Sprint is planning to launch a new device called the Sprint Express on November 18th.

The new device, the manufacturer of which is unknown at the moment, will be coming with a price tag of around $20 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and a two-year service agreement.

 

 

The handset costs $250 without a contract and will be available through Sprint Direct Ship.

The Sprint Express, which runs the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, comes equipped with a 2.6-inch touchscreen display, a physical BlackBerry-style keyboard, a 600 MHz processor, a 3.2-megapixel camera and a 1500 mAh battery.

If released, the new device will join Sprint’s line-up of Android messaging phones with the same form factor including the Samsung Replenish, Motorola Titanium, Motorola XPRT, and the Motorola Admiral.

Just to let you know, the Sprint Express looks similar to the Huawei Boulder. We will let you know as soon as there is an announcement from the carrier. So stay tuned to this space.
