We’ve got more than one confirmation about Instinct HD but none went into detail as this report emerged at Phone Dog. According to the info acquired by them, Instinct HD will be launched on Sep 26 with stores getting it from Sep 27 and will sell in between $99-149. Since the lower spec’d Instinct S30 currently sells for $99, Instinct HD’s $99 price point seems highly unlikely. $129-149 looks more realistic.
The HD tag associated with the phone is still speculative as the description says “record and play videos in Hi-Res” but the reporter reckons it will record at 720p. Other features rounding up the phone are a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen display, accelerometer, Wi-Fi, 5MP camera with LED flash and TV-out.
