Rumor Mill: Sprint to carry Samsung haptics phone

Samsung is launching a touchscreen handset called the F490 in Europe that features a 3.2" touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera, tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900), UMTS 2100, HSDPA 3.6, 130Mb of storage, Bluetooth 2.0, haptics feedback and a microSD expansion slot.
