Virgin Mobile Launches Samsung Intercept Android-Powered Smartphone

The well-known Sprint’s prepaid brands, Virgin Mobile USA has launched the Samsung Intercept Android-powered smartphone on its affordable, no-contract service plan. Samsung Intercept features a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel camera, slide-out full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, GPS, advanced messaging, Microsoft Outlook Exchange e-mail, full suite of Google Apps and full integration of social networking apps, running on Google Android 2.1 operating system.

“As smartphone users come up for contract renewal and examine their monthly costs, they will start to wonder why they are paying more each month when they can get similar services from Virgin Mobile at a fraction of the price,” commented Bob Stohrer, vice president-Marketing for Virgin Mobile USA. “With the Samsung Intercept on Android, Virgin Mobile is leading its customers into new, eagerly awaited territory while expanding our potential customer base.”

Samsung Intercept that paired with Virgin Mobile’s contract-free Beyond Talk service plans – $25 (300 minutes calling allowance per month), $40 (1,200 minutes) and $60 (unlimited voice calling) monthly, is now available at Target stores nationwide, and scheduled to hit Virgin Mobile’s official site and other major retailers by mid-October for about $250.
