Samsung Intercept for Sprint

Sprint has just officially taken the wraps off of the Samsung Intercept.  The Intercept runs Android 2.1 and features a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and a slide-out 4-row QWERTY keyboard.

We’ve not received too many specs on the phone so far, but can tell you that it supports the typical Sprint services like Sprint TV and NFL/NASCAR apps, and it only runs at EV-DO Rev. 0 data speeds for some reason.  Visual Voicemail is also available, and the phone can accept cards as large as 32GB in its microSD memory card slot.

The phone, which will be available in gray or pink, will go on sale on July 11, 2010 for $99.99 after a $100 rebate, when purchased with a new two year Everything Data plan.

Updated: More photos and a spec table available after the jump.
