Samsung Intensity III for Verizon is announced – rugged QWERTY feature phone
After leaking on the internet several times, the Samsung Intensity III for Verizon has been officially announced. Just like its predecessors, it is a feature phone that stands out with its slide-out QWERTY keyboard. But that is not the only thing there is to like about this otherwise low-grade handset.
The Samsung Intensity III meets 810F military specifications, meaning that it is resistant to dust, shock, heat, and what not. Can your fancy-pants smartphone withstand such torture? Probably not. Going further down the Intensity III's specs sheet we see a humble, 2.4-inch display with QVGA resolution (240x320 pixels). There is a pretty basic 2-megapixel camera on its back, and its microSD card slot can take cards of up to 32 gigabytes. In case you are into social networking, the handset allows you to access certain Facebook and Twitter features on the go. Interestingly, there is a fake call functionality as well, which one can use to get out of a sticky situation.
Interested in getting one? Well, it is available online right now and it will cost you $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. Whether that is a good deal or not we leave for you to discuss in the comments below.
