Sprint Officially Announces Samsung Intercept for $99
Even though the Sprint Intercept has already been leaked, it’s nice to see Sprint put out a press release outlining the price, availability, and specs. Starting July 11, the Samsung Intercept, successor to the Samsung Moment, will be available in all Sprint stores and select national retailers. The mid-range Android device will only set you back $99 after a $100 MIR on a new two-year contract. I say mid-range because the hardware on this Android device is decent, but nothing earth-shattering. Still, it’s nice to see Sprint offer mid-range devices that offer the Android experience.
First, it will run Android 2.1 and hopefully be upgraded to Android 2.2 at some point in the near future. It sports a 3.2 inch touch screen, a 3.2MP camera, slideout QWERTY keyboard, Sprint TV, pre-loaded with important social apps, and comes in either Gray Steel or Satin Pink color. In addition, it doubles as a MP3 player and has expandable memory up to 32GB via microSD card. The phone requires Sprint’s Everything Data plan which begins at $69.99 for unlimited talk, text, and web.
In case the HTC EVO 4G and the unreleased Epic 4G don’t suit your needs, the mid-range Intercept is sure be just the smartphone for you.
