SAN FRANCISCO--As long as we were in the neighborhood of Samsung's booth at CTIA Fall 2010, we took an opportunity to get a hands-on look at the Samsung Intercept for Virgin Mobile USA. This is a prepaid option that is already available in Target stores , and which will start appearing at other retail outlets this month for $249.99 with a month-to-month service plan.

We've already hit you over the head with the specs, but this is the first time we've been able to get a hands-on view. We can confirm it: the Intercept for Virgin Mobile is the spitting image of the same model for Sprint, minus some carrier-only apps, of course.

Check out our video above and our photos below, and stay tuned for a hands-on review as soon as ours arrives.
