The Samsung Intercept is the latest Android-running smartphone headed for the Sprint network. Priced at $99.99, the Intercept packs in a 3.2-inch display, slideout keypad, GPS navigation, 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and even the option of Sprint TV.Sprint's HTC Evo 4G too rich for your blood? On July 11, Sprint will be adding a $100 option to its lineup of Android smartphones with the debut of the Samsung Intercept. The Intercept features a 3.2-inch touch-screen display, a slideout QWERTY keypad, the additional navigation option of an optical joystick, 3G, WiFi and Stereo Bluetooth connectivity, an accelerometer and GPS navigation - in all, not a shabby feature list for a mid-range device. Though that $100 price point, it should be said, comes after a $100 mail-in rebate and with a two-year contract and data plan.
"Samsung Intercept is a valuable addition to our growing portfolio of Android phones, with a rich Internet browsing experience, visual voicemail and practically all of the latest must-have features," Kevin Packingham, Sprint's senior vice president of product development, said in a statement. "Best of all, at this price, we are able to bring the Android experience to a broader audience that will appreciate the versatility that comes with access to thousands of apps on Android Market. This is a great device for those who use their wireless device to manage a business or socialize with family and friends."
