UPDATE: Samsung Intensity U450 now for sale through Verizon
We reported last week that the Samsung Intensity U450 and Rogue U960 were both set to launch simultaneously by Verizon on September 8th. Well surprise, the Intensity U450 in Gray is now listed for sale (see the update below) via the Verizon Wireless web site with a price of $29.99 after $50 rebate with a 2-year contract and is also Buy 1 Get 1 Free. (No sign of the Intensity in Red.) The Samsung Intensity could be considered the little brother of the Rogue, since both offer sliding a QWERTY keyboard, but the Intensity is lacking the really cool stuff, like a touch-sensitive AMOLED display. Other features of the device include a 1.3MP camera, 2.1" diagonal 176x220 pixel TFT display, 2.5mm headset jack, can use microSDHC cards up to 16GB, and supports VCast Music, VZ Navigator and Mobile Web. Unfortunately, data is limited to 1x speeds, as EVDO is not supported.

It may be lacking some of the more advanced features but that doesn't make it a bad phone. There are plenty of people who just want text and talk and could care less about the screen, camera and capabilities beyond basic usage. This will be a big seller like the Env3 and Rival, esspecially with the price being so low.
