Lowering the bar? Samsung Intercept for Sprint is Official

The T-Mobile Charm can’t get all of today’s Android attention, no, Sprint isn’t having it. Today they officially dished the details on a new mid-range Android set, the Samsung Intercept. Available nationwide this Sunday, July 11th, for $99.99 (after a $100 mail-in rebate, on a 2-year contract), the Intercept is a direct shot from Sprint, aimed clearly at the T-Mobile MyTouch Slide and AT&T HTC Aria. Are they on aim? Read on.

The Intercept is a 3.2-inch slider with a full QWERTY physical keyboard and a 3.2-Megapixel camera. It comes in 2 color options, Gray Steel, and Satin Pink. On the software side, the Intercept runs stock Android 2.1, and is loaded with social networking apps including Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter. We had a brief hands-on with the Intercept a while back and came away impressed with the overall feel of the device. We particularly liked the keyboard, which had generously spaced keys and good tactile feedback. We’ll have more on the Intercept soon, and a review up as soon as we receive one.
