Go Global with Samsung i350 Intrepid from Sprint
Clearly going after the same market currently occupied by all sorts of BlackBerry devices is the newly announced Samsung SPH-i350 Intrepid. This QWERTY-packing smartphone gets powered by Windows Mobile 6.5 and it’s being destined for the shelves of Sprint, sitting right alongside the Samsung Moment and HTC Hero.
Helping to attract the corporate market is the inclusion of quad-band GSM support for use on international networks. This way, you can take your Sprint phone and use it everywhere from London to Hong Kong. Naturally, the Samsung Intrepid also handles the 3G EV-DO Rev.A thing while at home with Sprint.
That may look like any old 2.5-inch QVGA display, but that’s actually a touchscreen in there. You also get the aforementioned QWERTY keyboard, as well as a 3.2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, Mobile Office, WiFi, Internet Explorer 6, and Adobe Flash Support. Access to the Windows Marketplace for Mobile rounds out the package.
Sprint will start selling the Samsung i350 Intrepid on October 11. Expect to pay $149.99 with a two-year contract and a $100 mail-in rebate.
