Sprint rides the Express to Budget Town, available now for $20

Saturday, November 19th 2011. | Internet News

Do you choo-choo-choose the Sprint Express, or does it choose you? The Now Network’s mixing things up this holiday season by adding its own branded device — in reality, a reworked Huawei Boulder that Sprint slapped its name on — to the low end of its smartphone lineup.

Sprint ExpressKnown simply as the Express, it’s a portrait QWERTY Android 2.3 handset that will set you back $20 with a two-year contract (after a $50 mail-in rebate).

What you’ll get in return for that hard-earned Jackson is a 2.6-inch QVGA (320 x 240) display, 3.2MP camera, 256MB of RAM, 512MB of internal storage (with expandable microSD slot), a 1,500mAh battery and a 3G mobile hotspot that supports up to five devices.

We doubt it’ll be the first stop on anybody’s Black Friday shopping list, but we think it may actually get penciled into the schedule somewhere.
