Samsung Intercept Video Transcript
Hi, I'm Jessica Dolcourt, senior associate editor for CNET.com coming to you from CTIA Fall 2010 where we have the Samsung Intercept for Virgin Mobile USA. Now you've seen this phone before. It was on Sprint so this is actually the phone's second carrier. What you have here is an Android phone running version 2.1 of the operating system. It's got a 3.2-inch touchscreen which is a little bit small for our taste. We prefer 3.5 inches at the minimum but it works alright. It's got virtual keys here and hard keys for the talk and end button. It also has a four-way directional keypad with an optical trackpad in the middle. It has a full slideout QWERTY keyboard, pretty spacious keyboard here. On the side, you have a 3.5-mm headset jack, a dedicated camera button. On the other side, you've got a Micro SD card slot that accepts up to 32 gigabytes of expandable memory, and on the top, you have a micro USB charger port. On the back, you have a 3.2-megapixel camera with a flash. It's also got a camcorder built into that. Inside, you have your usual Android apps such as Facebook, YouTube, and GMail. You also have the Virgin Live Mobile app which is an app for streaming music. The Samsung Intercept will be available in October for $249.99. I'm Jessica Dolcourt from CNET looking at the Samsung Intercept for Virgin Mobile USA.
