Mid Range Android Market? Samsung throws an Interception


With all the recent hoopla still going on about the Samsung Galaxy S Series many may not realize that the team at Samsung Mobile US began offering a very solid mid-range Android Phone to Sprint customers in the form of the Samsung Intercept, combining the power of Android with Sprint Value. The intercept packs in the features for just $99.99

The Samsung Intercept features a beautiful 3.0 inch touch screen and a full sized qwerty keyboard. Unlike the Samsung Moment (last years Android Slider from Samsung/Sprint) these qwerty keys are flatter and offer a much better and faster typing experience.

The Intercept features a 3.2 megapizel camera and video camera, 3.5mm headphone jack, and comes with a 2gb micro-sd card expandable to 32gb. The micro-sd card is housed with side entrance to the slot so that the battery cover does not have to be removed to access the microSD card.

The Samsung Intercept is a great phone for customers looking to transition into Android from another operating system or a feature phone. It’s also great for those looking for an Android experience but Galaxy S is just too much phone for them. At the $99.99 price you still get the ease of using integrated google products for free, ie: Gmail, Google Maps, Google Calendar even Google Docs (with an app available free in the market) and of course access to 70,000+ apps. Kevin Packingham, Senior Vice President of product development for Sprint said “…at this price we are able to bring the Android experience to a broader audience that will apprecite the versatility that comes with access to thousans of apps in the Android Market…”
