Samsung Intercept Coming to Virgin Mobile

Pre-paid wireless provider Virgin Mobile has selected the Samsung Intercept as its first Android device.  The ‘successor’ to last year’s Moment runs Android 2.1 and features an 800MHz processor, a 3.2-inch display, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and support for WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth.  Virgin Mobile made the announcement on their Facebook page, however pricing and availability was not immediately disclosed.  It will be very interesting to see what kind of Android adoption there is for the company and their unlimited calling/data plans.

    Virgin Mobile USA has a $25/month unlimited data/text + 300mins plan. If that works for intercept, that would probably be the cheapest unlimited data monthly plan for Android phone. If that become true, horray to Virgin Mobile.
