Virgin Mobile have only recently announced that they are planning to carry the Samsung Intercept, which will be the first Android device they will offer. No official date of launch has been released yet.
However, that release seems to be very near, since the Intercept for Virgin Mobile has started showing up in Target stores, priced at $249.99. Which is a very interesting price for this device, considering it’s probably on pre-paid, a.k.a. sans contract.
The Intercept is already available on Sprint, but their $99 price for the smartphone obviously comes with a 2-year contract.
The Samsung Intercept runs Android 2.1 and has a 3.2-inch 240×400 capacitive touchscreen, a 3.2 megapixel camera with video capture, 1500 mAh battery, microSD card slot, 3.5 mm headset jack and all your usual connectivity options. It also comes with a nice side-sliding QWERTY keyboard that is sure to satisfy the texting addicts out there.
And it looks like it will be available on pre-paid plans from Virgin Mobile very soon.
