Samsung Intercept is up for pre-order, might launch this weekend

Chris Ziegler

Sure, the Epic 4G seems awesome -- but that doesn't mean Sprint can (or should) abandon the midrange Android market, right? On that note, the previously-leaked Samsung Intercept is now up for pre-order on Sprint's so-called EVP site for business discount customers where it's selling for $99.99 on a two-year contract after rebate (though we imagine regular customers coming into corporate retail stores might have to pay more than that). Feature-wise, you're looking at a 3.2 megapixel cam with some sort of video capture, slide-out QWERTY keyboard (this is likely a Moment successor, after all), and your choice of Gray Steel or Satin Pink finishes. Word is that we might see an official launch this weekend -- just don't mistake it for an Epic when you see it in the store, alright?

[Thanks, anonymous tipster]

Update: Best Buy accidentally sold one for $100 already, so it's possible this is going to be the asking price for everyone -- and considering the specs, it really shouldn't go for a penny more. Thanks, A Mathur!
