FreedomPop plans to launch its first smartphone thanks to a new investment from Intel. The chip-maker is supplying the processor for the handset, which will be made by a "well-known device manufacturer." The device will go on sale next year for less than $200. FreedomPop did not share any details about the handset other than to say it would be customized to work on its service. FreedomPop is a Sprint MVNO that offers some data and voice service for free. It charges low fees for access to Sprint's network, but subscribers are encouraged to use WiFi as much as practical. Intel recently invested $36 million in FreedomPop. FreedomPop expanded to the U.K. earlier this year and plans to reach more markets in 2016.
