With the official launch of Windows Mobile 6.5 underway,
The Intrepid will be available starting October 11 for $149.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate. Aimed at business users, the smartphone has world roaming capabilities, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and support for Sprint's EV-DO Rev. A network. The Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional phone also features a 2.5-inch touch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard.
There are plenty of apps and services on the device as well. The Intrepid offers a Smart Read business card scanner (works with the phone's 3.2-megapixel camera), access to social-networking sites, and Microsoft's TellMe service for voice-activated dialing, texting, and more.
The Samsung Intrepid also supports a number of Sprint services, including Sprint Navigation, the Sprint Music Store, and Sprint NFL Mobile. Of course, you can also download more apps through the new Windows Marketplace for Mobile.
