Virgin Mobile's Samsung Intercept will get its dose of Froyo around March 25th
We’ve already seen Sprint’s version get its tasty dessert update, but now Virgin Mobile’s Samsung Intercept appears to be on course of getting its new makeover as well.

In fact, Virgin’s Twitter account recently posted a juicy tidbit aimed for customers holding a Samsung Intercept in their possession. As it stands right now, it’s only going to be approximately a little bit over a month, some time on “about 3/25”, before we see the Android 2.2 Froyo update roll out for the Intercept. Without a doubt, that’s good news coming to handset owners, but it really makes you wonder what the “about” is all about.

Regardless of that, it’s fairly certain that it’ll undoubtedly be released relatively soon – especially when Sprint’s version has been donning the Froyo makeover for quite some time now. Let’s just hope and cross our finger that we don’t see any delays.

Good to see the prepaid variety not getting totally forgotten and left behind. Bravo Sprint.

This is awesome. My girlfriend has Virgin Mobile (We live in the Tri-State/Northern New Jersey Area) and despite some lag issues, the intercept is an awesome phone for the price. If Virgin Mobile gets a Galaxy S type phone with similar specs, I'm jumping ship to them. I don't even care about dual core goodness right now.

Add 320 x 480 screen to Intercept. Add Front Facing Web Camera to Intercept. Then it becomes Samsung Transform. Also, Add 1 Ghz processor to Intercept. Add Super AMOLED screen to Intercept. Then it becomes Samsung Epic. Come Oct 2011, we will see many more improved Android smart phones on Virgin Mobile USA. Finally, it is not the phone hardware that makes phone great (except for games, video chat). It is the phone software, Apps, Data Service that makes phone great. With 25 USD Unlimited SMS (Text) / MMS / Data - Android phones on Virgin Mobile USA are going to rule for a long time. Sooner or later, People will realize that they are paying extra for same SMS / MMS / Data services to other phone carriers in USA. They will come to Virgin Mobile USA to save money on the phone operating costs.
