Samsung Intercept ready to succeed the Moment with more spit and polish
Not due to launch until July 12th on Sprint, as we reported, the successor to the Samsung Moment-the Intercept-made its way out of a Best Buy store for $100. The handset has a focus on social networking and has many of the same specs as the model it is replacing. While things like the 3.2 inch screen (with 16 million colors), the landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard and the 3.2MP camera might remind you of the Moment, the 320 x 480 resolution of the display has been amped up to 800 x 480. The device has Android 2.1 on board with the possibility of  a later upgrade to 2.2. In total, the Intercept has some more spit and polish to it than its predecessor, which makes sense since models like the HTC Aria are raising the standards of mid-range Android phones.

Ok So I have the Moment and would not get this phone for the mere fact that its pretty much the same actually not as good WHY??? did they not include a flash on the camera like the Moment has which works great and is a bright camera flash what a dumb move!

Yeah there is no point in upgrading to this phone if that could even be considered an upgrade. But the Epic would be a real upgrade.

So true I would not consider this an upgrade from the Moment it's just there way to have you get another model now if you still want a camera flash like the moment has which to me is a must now.

Doesn't the video show the Intercept with a flash in the back? And aren't the other upgraded items, Android 2.1 , higher resolution screen, faster processor, and improved keyboard? But, yeah I would still wait for the Epic if you don't mind paying the extra $10.00 a month. Otherwise, as I understand it, this would be Sprint's newest (July release) 3G only Android device.

Ya no flash guess Sprint wants people to go with other devices like the Epic etc if thats what they want. Which is what I would do myself to bad though for those looking for a mid range device. I know I already said it but the camera flash esp when it's a good one like on the Moment makes such a difference in night shots. To me it outweighs the other little trivial things that the intercept has. It's prob a money matter wonder how much more it costs them to include one. To me should be standard on these devices with 2megapixels and up.
