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 is a solid alternative to the EVO 4G or the EPIC 4G both of which are leading the market with Specs...

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. 🙂
Its noticeably thinner and lighter than the Moment which is a great change.

The Moment is better I dont consider this an upgrade

Ok So I have the Moment and would not get this phone for the mere fact that its pretty much the same actually not as good WHY??? did they not include a flash on the camera like the Moment has which works great and is a bright camera flash what a dumb move! To me the few minor tweaks they did to it do not offset this. Too bad for people wanting a midrange phone they should put flashes and decent ones on all of these type phones. When my upgrade comes due it wont be to this.
At this point, yea the Moment is a better value because its a better phone plus its cheaper w/contract being over six months since its release.
Im assuming this is the 2010 line up alternative to the Epic for those who arent a power user and dont wan...
I doubt that it is intended to be an upgrade. Samsung's strategy seems to be a good, better, best or even a better, best strategy. They are releasing your phone soon, the Epic.
We have many customers who would jump on the Android bandwagon in a hear...
this is supposed to be the upgrade of the moment due to the fact that the moment cant get the new android froyo updates.

Disappointing, but obviously not an upgrade from the moment

I don't know why people are saying that Moment owners are going to be dissapointed with the phone. Dude, they are in a 2 year contract, none of them are up for renewal anytime soon. This phone is Samsung smartly aiming for customers who want a good 3G phone without paying the extra $$ for 4G, and Samsung not so smartly cutting costs and not having it have modern 3G. Really Samsung?

First phone capable of Rev A?

Trivia time!
The Mogul?

All new for 2008!

WOW! Yes we can!
Cool it blue, this phone is designed for a specific segment of the market, for those who are not wireless technogeeks like us.
Not being in sales or marketing I can see where you would not see the value of a more simple device for specific customers....

rev. 0...

...instead of rev. A?

Odd choice.
