Samsung makes the Android-powered Intercept for Sprint official

We heard a few murmurs about this phone earlier this week, but the actual date of its launch escaped us. As it turns out, today is the day for Samsung’s mid-range Android handset to hit: it’s riding the publicity wave of mega-phones like the EVO and Galaxy line, but sports decidedly less impressive specs. Still, it looks like a perfectly capable and fairly attractive phone, available on Sprint for $100 after a $100 rebate.

It’s got vanilla 2.1 on it, with no word on 2.2. Headed your way July 11th – more info here and an early video hands-on here. Can’t say I like the color scheme, though.
