The Samsung Intercept, Virgin Mobile's first Android offering in its prepaid lineup, is available at Target stores starting today. Virgin Mobile will roll out the Intercept to customers through other retailers throughout October. In addition, you can nab the $249.99 Intercept from Virgin Mobile's Web site by the middle of the month. Service plans go for $25, $40, and $60.
The Intercept is an entry-level Android smartphone. It features a 3.2-inch WQVG touch-screen display, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and a 3.2-megapixel camera-plus-camcorder.
In addition, there's support for Bluetooth, a microSD card slot for expandable memory, and several preloaded apps including YouTube, Facebook, and the Virgin Mobile Live app, which broadcasts streaming music.
The Samsung Intercept for Virgin Mobile will be similar to the Samsung Intercept we previously reviewed for Sprint.
