Samsung Instinct Gets Small Software Update

by Reads (6,185)

Samsung and Sprint have released a small system software update for the Instinct, their iPhone-esque featurephone.

There are only a few noticeable changes in this update. There’s greater volume on Bluetooth headsets, for example, and they will be able to use a saved pictures as a background image in the application launcher.

Those who would like to upgrade their Instinct now can do so by going to the Settings panel on the device itself.

Looking Ahead

This update reportedly lays some of the groundwork for a much larger one that’s coming in the next few weeks. This will include enhancements for the web browser, Sprint Navigation, email, Visual Voicemail, and more.

Samsung is also supposedly working on a fix for a problem this device has with many Java applications. The Java environment was primarily created for non-touchscreen devices that have certain hardware buttons. The Instinct lacks these, and the workaround Samsung came up with prevents users from entering text with most Java apps.
