Samsung m620 to be christened "UpStage" for Sprint  —  So it won't be called the "Flipper" or the "Ultra Music" — no, it seems Sprint wanted a name all its own for the very unique m620 musicphone from Samsung.  When it launches at CTIA this week, the two-faced handset will get slapped with the name …
