Sprint Discontinues the Samsung SPH-i500
Sprint is no longer offering the aging Samsung SPH-i500 Palm OS Smartphone. The clamshell i500 ran Palm OS 4.1 on a 66 Mhz Dragonball processor with 16MB of RAM.
The Samsung i500 made it's debut in early 2003. It is now no longer listed on the Sprint PCS website. It is reported as sold out and discontinued.
In the years since, Samsung has shown a number of new Palm OS 5 Smartphones, but none have been offered by any major carriers. One notable exception is the Palm OS 5 Samsung SCH-i539, which is currently being offered in mainland China.
Thanks to PDAphonehome for the tip.
