Samsung Press Room
November 30, 2005

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. and DALLAS, Texas - Nov. 29, 2005 - Sprint (NYSE: S) and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung) today introduced two new handsets - the Sprint Power VisionSM Phone MM-A920 by Samsung® and the Sprint Power VisionSM Phone MM-A900 by Samsung®. Harnessing the speed of Sprint's Power VisionSM EVDO network, Samsung's MM-A900 and MM-A920 handsets enable customers to access the latest news, music and entertainment content at broadband-like speeds.

New services supported by both the MM-A900 and the MM-A920 include the newly announced Sprint Music StoreSM, which allows users to immediately buy and download complete songs directly to their phone; 30 channels of live and on demand video and audio from Sprint TVSM and On Demand, a personalized resource guide to news, traffic, weather, sports and entertainment. "The MM-A900 and MM-A920 offer great-looking design with the ability to download a rich selection of content directly to the phone. Features like external music-navigation keys make these phones both functional and attractive," said Jeff Hallock, vice president of product marketing and marketing strategy for Sprint. "With services that are unrivaled in the industry, these handsets are sure to be at the top of many holiday wish lists."

The MM-A920, with its embedded music player and external music navigation controls, provides access to thousands of songs for instant download and easy access. With an expansion slot that houses up to 512MB of TransFLASH memory, the MM-A920 allows music lovers to easily store and transfer their favorite tunes, images and videos.

Measuring just over a half-inch thick, the ultra-compact MM-A900 is the thinnest Power Vision phone available from Sprint. Made of magnesium, a lightweight metal, the handset's unique look and feel will delight the fashion-conscious user. In addition, the sleek handset's large, crisp display and stereo speakers are ideal for watching live TV with full-motion video with vivid sound.

Both phones include numerous powerful features including:

1.3 mega-pixel camera/camcorder with a flash and zoom
PictBridge-enabled printing capabilities
Bluetooth® wireless technology for hands-free connectivity
Phone-as-modem capabilities

"With more Sprint Power Vision phones than any other manufacturer, Samsung caps 2005 with its most impressive portfolio of multimedia phones to date," said Peter Skarzynski senior vice president for Samsung. "The MM-A900 and MM-A920 are a perfect complement to Sprint's powerful EVDO network."
