Samsung Intercept Sold Early At Best Buy for $100, New Details Revealed [Video]


One lucky Sprint customer was able to walk into a Best Buy a couple of days ago and pick up a Samsung Intercept for $100. The device isn’t supposed to be released until July 11th, but we won’t linger on the details of how this came to be. Instead, we’ll take a good look at the video of the device in to extract some new details.

One big thing that’s been noted is that the display has a resolution of 800×480. This is notable because the touchscreen is 3.2-inches: this combination of resolution and screen size don’t often turn up in Android devices. We’ve also been able to confirm that the device’s camera is – in fact – 3.2-megapixels like its older sister, the Samsung Moment.

Beside all that, everything else is still the same. Four-row QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.1 (stripped down to play nice with less-than-capable hardware), and an ambitious goal to not be over-shadowed by the Samsung Epic 4G as it has to contend with one of the nicer devices coming to Sprint (and all US carriers) later this summer.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
