The first lineup of devices comprise the initial line up for the consumer launch of QChat now set for June 15th with availability through DirectShip and Telesales set for June 11th though these dates can change at anytime.
The Sanyo PRO-200 and PRO-700 will launch at their respective $249.99 and $269.99 retail pricepoints with the Z400 by Samsung launching at a higher $299.99 pricepoint reflecting the addition of the 1.3 megapixel camera, while the LG LX400 is expected to launch in Red at $279.99 with a VGA camera.
The last device intended for launch in June is the Franklin CDU-680, which will be branded as the Sprint Mobile Broadband USB Modem-U680 instead of using the Franklin brand. The modem will feature zero-CD activation and provisioning with all software held in ROM with compatibility across all major operating systems (Windows XP/Vista. Mac OS X, and Linux compatibility), and will be promoted as the only USB device to not need a separate USB adapter for use on the MacBook Air.
