Update 2: The Samsung MM-A940 does indeed support the Sprint Music Store, as previous reports had indicated, the error was on the part of Sprint’s Power Vision web site omitting that information as well as the lack of propper follow-up answers from Sprint media relations.
Update: Sprint along with Power Vision launched their Music Store. Unlike other music stores, such as iTunes and the mMode Music Store, Sprint’s is integrated into EV-DO phones (but currently is only supported on the Sanyo MM-9000), and supports purchase from the handset. In addition, licenses are transferrable to PC. Because of the added mobility and diminshed enforcement of DRM, the songs are $2.50 each. With FOTA, it is possible for Sprint to add this to the Samsung MM-A940 as well in the future.
Sprint today launched on their web site three new phones, as well as their EV-DO service known as Power Vision. The Sanyo MM-9000 and Samsung MM-A940, as we reported previously are priced at $379.99 and $399.99 respectively. Sprint also launched the HTC/UTStarcom PPC-6700 for consumers, at $599.99. In addition, Sprint launched a non-EV-DO phone, the Sanyo RL-4930 as well today, at $199.99.
