After teasing it on YouTube two days ago, Sprint has officially announced the Express, a $19.99 portrait QWERTY phone with a decent set of features for its price class. The Gingerbread device's key specs include a 2.6-inch QVGA touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard, 3.2-megapixel camera and 3G hotspot capability. Although Sprint doesn't detail the processor and memory, PocketNow reports that it clocks in at 600MHz, and the international version of the device has 256MB of RAM. It may not be for power users, but with its low price and portrait QWERTY form factor, the Express could be a decent alternative for BlackBerry lovers. The Android phone is currently available for purchase online and in retail stores.
