What? You thought Sprint was done now that it announced the HTC Hero? Apparently things are just getting started, Sprint fans, as two new handsets have popped up on Sprint rebate sheets valid through October 31st, and you know what that means — well, sort of. Rebate sheets have a tendency to be tricky territory because the handsets found within don’t always launch when you might expect. They do however, give a good general time frame nonetheless. On to the details… The first handset, dubbed the Samsung Intrepid, is the Ace sequel many of you have been waiting for. Details are a bit limited for the time being but we know it’ll run Windows Mobile 6.5 so the soonest we could possibly see it is October 6th (though we think it may come a bit later). Rumored specs include a 528MHz processor, QWERTY keypad, 3 megapixel camera, CDMA/EV-DO Rev. A and GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity, Wi-Fi, aGPS, microSDHC support and a QVGA display. Most importantly perhaps, at least as far as current Samsung Ace owners are concerned, it’s said to sport 256 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM. As for the other unannounced handset — the Samsung Moment — we’ve got nothing for the time being but details will surely find their way to light now that we know this bad boy is out there. Hit the jump for a bigger version of the image above along with one more shot.

Thanks, schnurgun!
