Verizon’s Samsung Intensity III Can Get You Out of Awkward Situations
This basic cellphone is designed for the texter and social butterfly, with its slide-out keyboard and quick access to social networks like Facebook and Twitter. It can even get you out of an awkward social situation with its “Fake Call” feature. This function lets users set the phone to ring — say, during a date — so one can offer a plausible excuse and a make a getaway if things are going horribly.
The Intensity III has a 2.4-inch display and two-megapixel camera on its back, and though there aren’t a ton of bells and whistles, it does offer Bluetooth, voice commands and a microSD expansion slot.
The ruggedized phone is also eco-friendly, as it’s made from 80 percent post-consumer materials and includes a calculator for tracking fuel mileage and carbon dioxide emissions.
The Samsung Intensity III is available now online for $79.99 on contract, and will be in stores in the coming weeks.
