Sprint has introduced a new 15-frame-per-second streaming video service that will run on a Samsung Electronics mobile phone that Sprint began selling earlier this week.

The Sprint PCS Vision Multimedia Services, which includes audio as well as the video channels, plays video clips faster than the 1 frame per second offered by the Idetic MobiTV service that the wireless carrier has been offering since last year, according to Leslie Letts, a Sprint spokesperson. PCS Vision Multimedia Services is a pure streaming service, whereas MobiTV requires the customer to download the video to the phone before playing it.

The pure streaming service is made possible by a Qualcomm media player in the Samsung MM-A700 handset, Letts said. The 119-gram (4.2-ounce) clamshell handset also includes a megapixel camera and digital camcorder, according to Sprint. The phones began shipping to Sprint stores on Thursday, Letts said. The MM-A700 costs $399.99, or $249.99 after rebate with a two-year agreement.
