Samsung Intercept to launch at Sprint July 11th for $99
As we reported, the Samsung Intercept will be launching soon as the successor to the Samsung Moment for Sprint. Instead of July 12th, the handset will be released a day earlier which is this coming Sunday. With a signed two-year contract, the handset costs you $99. The device has a focus on the social networking sites and a highly upgraded 3.2 inch screen that features 240x400 pixels resolution. Android 2.1 will be powering the device at launch with a possibility of an upgrade to 2.2 later on. Potential buyers should note that according to the fine print, the Intercept runs on the slower Ev-Do rev.0 network which has been rarely used since the Sprint Instinct pioneered use of the faster rev.A pipeline back in 2008.

Me I cant live now w out a flash on the camera because its my main camera and the Moments works great. So dumb of them to drop that and the other specs dont really make this that much better of a phone if at all. I wonder if it really costs that much more to include a flash. Guess Sprint wants people to get the Evo or Epic etc if they want that feature to bad for those wanting a midrange phone. I would rather snatch up a Moment while you can get one still.

my sister was thinking about getting the EPIC 4G... i think she'll like this better. less techy more feminine and best of all you dont have to pay that $10 premium data fee. Only downfall i see is no camera flash, the spacebar placement on the keyboard, and the EVDO Rev0 data speeds. It looks like an okay alternative to the EPIC for those trying to save a few bucks.
