Samsung Intrepid for Sprint – yet another Windows Mobile 6.5 phone
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few months, you know that today is the day for Windows Mobile 6.5. Starting today, the first phones running the slightly refreshed OS are starting to flood the market.

The Samsung Intrepid for Sprint is one of these models using its Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional OS as its only key feature. Successor of the Ace, it keeps the same form factor with landscape display and thumb-friendly QWERTY keyboard below it, but we are happy to see it looks slightly better and that it features a touchscreen. On the other hand, specifications haven’t been greatly improved and it is nothing to write home about. Some of the Samsung Intrepid features that are worth mentioning are the support for Sprint Navigation and Adobe Flash Lite, which gives a limited Flash support in the internet browser. It has a normally-sized 2.5-inch QVGA display, a modest 3.2-megapixel camera, EV-DO Rev.A and Wi-Fi support. As the Ace, Intrepid features GSM receiver for roaming overseas.

Samsung Intrepid is going to be available starting this Sunday at a price of $150 after a $100 mail-in rebate and with a two-year contract. This is an intrepid price, isn’t it?

Why would anyone pay $250 for this up front?

At a 2.5" screen is it a resistive touchscreen? I have trouble imagining it is capacitive. I dunno, it doesn't sound bad and I'd consider it if it felt great in the hand and had a great keyboard.

I got to play with one of these phones today, and the touch screen is resistive touch (it comes with a stylus). It was very responsive, and I like the WM 6.5 interface. The keyboard is much better than the original too.
