Samsung Intercept Connects with Sprint's Android Lineup
Samsung and Sprint today announced the Samsung Intercept, a new Android phone. The Intercept has a slide-out, full QWERTY keyboard, and the phone will run Android 2.1. There is a 3.2-inch screen up front, and a 3.2 megapixel camera around back. An optical joystick will help navigate the menus. These specs are remarkably similar to Sprint's Samsung Moment, which sports a similar screen size, camera sensor and optical joystick, among other similarities. The new Intercept will run on Sprint's slower EV-DO rev. 0 network, while its predecessor used EV-DO rev. A tech. The Intercept is also smaller than the Moment, with a screen that pushes fewer pixels. Samsung is also releasing a similar Android phone with a QWERTY slider for Sprint's 4G network, the Samsung Epic 4G. The Samsung Intercept will come in grey or pink color options. The Intercept will be available July 11 for $200 with a contract agreement, and Sprint is offering a $100 mail-in rebate.

Nice phone, I've seen it
This phone however is a great alternative if someone wants a smart phone but something not as high end or pricey as the EVO or EPIC.
