September 22, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Virgin Mobile USA has announced that it will be offering the Samsung Intercept. The pre-paid carrier has confirmed via its Facebook page that the Intercept, the successor to Samsung’s Moment, will be its first Android device. It wasn’t long ago that we witnessed the Intercept hop into Sprint’s line-up.

The Android 2.1 Intercept comes equipped with a 3.2-inch LCD touchscreen and features a QWERTY slider. The device will be offering a range of standard smartphone features including a 3.2 megapixel camera, GPS and WiFi connectivity. The Intercept also packs an 800MHz processor, Bluetooth 2.1 and a microSD card slot for expandable memory.

There is no confirmation on the pricing and release date, but it was confirmed that more details would be released soon.

Some of the offered plans by the Virgin Mobile include unlimited text, e-mail, data, web access and voice starting at just $25 a month. The pricing increases depending on the amount of minutes, with 1200 voice minutes at $40 a month and unlimited voice at $60 a month. The only other true smartphone in the lineup, the BlackBerry Curve, requires a special BlackBerry add-on for $10/month.
