Today Verizon Wireless launched the new Samsung u450 Intensity on its network. The Intensity is a messaging-focused device that features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for use with its mobile IM, email, and threaded SMS messaging systems.

Aside from the obvious messaging features, the Intensity also offers a 1.3 megapixel camera with a dedicated shutter button, as well as support for popular Verizon services like V CAST Music with Rhapsody and Verizon's GPS powered VZ Navigator system. Music can be synchronized to the Intensity over a USB connection to a desktop computer, and the music can be stored on microSD(INFO) cards as large as 16GB in size (not included). Bluetooth wireless support for both headsets and stereo headphones is also included.

The Intensity features a 2.1-inch, 176 x 220 pixel 262k color TFT display. The phone weighs 100g (3.5oz) and measures 108mm x 53mm x 16.5mm (4.3in x 2.1in x .7in) in size. The 2G Intensity's battery is rated for 5 hours of talk time or 12.5 days of standby time.

The Samsung Intensity is available for $29.99 with a new 2-year agreement, after an instant online rebate of $50. It is available in two color schemes, one with red highlights, the other with gray.

The problem is with the keypad lock feature: With the keypad lock feature (on) you can still accidentally press the Power + End button and the phone powers off. The problem is when I get into my car and the phone is in the leather case on my side it is pressing on the center console in my car on the power button and turning the unit off while the keypad is locked. I feel that you should not be able to power the unit off without first unlocking the keypad, being as the keypad lock feature is an option. All keys should be protected except when receiving a call.

I would suggest doing a software update to prevent this from happening.
