    The only good thing I see out of this phone is that Samsung will probably support it (poorly) beyond the Moment. With almost identical (if the rumors are true) hardware, the software builds should be easily adaptable to the Moment. Unless there's some drastic change in hardware or a incredible cheap price, the Intercept is a loser. releasing what appears to be a Moment with improved keyboard, touchwiz and (maybe) 4g in the shadow off the Evo is just plain stupid IMHO.

    BTW, The screen will not be resistive nor lcd. It's looking like it will be the same amoled we have, not the new super amoled. Personally, I have about the same chance off upgrading to a Intercept as I have to a 2000 Moto Razr.

    I have to agree. I will continue to wait for my upgrade to try the EVO or the next best thing in November. You have some great remarks by the way Pasta!

    Agreed, I'm due for an upgrade through Sprint any time I want, but I'm waiting till December time frame just cuz I choose to. At that time I'll prob either upgrade to the EVO, unless something amazing comes out.

    I hope sprint gets an HTC or Motorola with a keyboard when I'm due for and upgrade (just got the Moment in Feb). It still a ways away but Sprint does have the early upgrade, and it looks like I will be using that. The Evo is nice but to big for my taste.

    If it "features" working GPS and absolutely no CDMA lockup then I may just consider it. Rather than have Sprint replace my phone (yet again) with another "probably won't work" Moment, I'll persuade (bitch and moan actually) them to replace it with a Moment 2. If it's no cost to me then hey why not??

    With my luck I'd probably get a pink one. That just figures.
    Damn Sprint...
    :rolleyes:

    I wish I could calculate how much money Samsung is going to lose from me not buying their products from now on... Would just be neat to know. I mean, they make tvs, radios, washer/dryers, phones, and a ton of other electronics. And I won't be buying any of 'em.

    I have still seen no official specifications on this. Is there a page which lists them? Otherwise, all this is speculation.

    I do notice from the screen shots that it appears to have gone with a round power plug instead of the microUSB. Am I seeing things?

    I don't get why people bash all of Samsung's products off 1 part of the market. So their phone sucks, but last time I heard, Samsung had some of the best TV's on the market. I love Samsung. We just got a new washer and dryer not to long ago and they are Samsung. I have 27" CRT TV that is 6 years old and works perfectly fine. Also have a DVD/VCR player that is Samsung and no issues with it either.

    The phone sucks because they wouldn't invest proper time and manpower into making it a good product. I know they make good stuff, I've seen/used it. That's what is so infuriating about the Moment: the implication is that we'll just get over it.

    For some people I guess that's true, but I can see what this device was capable of and what Samsung allowed it to be. I may come across as a 'hater' or a whiner but I feel like I'm in a minority of people who actually think companies should support their products to the fullest extent in a world that thrives in half-assedness.

    I'm not disagreeing with the phone being a pile of junk, but their other products are still good.

    Looks like this thread was spot on:

    Samsung Intercept to replace the Moment on Sprint? -- Engadget

    I guess Samsung is saying "Heeeeeeeey... we'll give you 2.2 Froyo... as long as you buy a brand new Moment upgrade"

    Seems pretty slimy if you ask me.

    Afraid to think that once Gingerbread comes out Samsung will do the same thing again =/

    You have to look at other things though. Like a few here,

    1.Battery life. If battery life is better than the Moments, easy winner.
    2.Software optimization. If Sprint and Samsung optimize Android correctly on this platform, it should fly!
    3.Support. Sprint is listing the Moment as EOL in July. Meaning, no more support for it. Don't have much of a choice there.
    4.Android 2.2. The Moment isn't getting 2.2 at all, The Intercept is suppose to get it. 2.2 brings a lot to Android.

    The Samsung Epic will be released later this summer. I am kind of interested in it, but I don't really want another slide keyboard phone. I am leaning toward the EVO. (Can you disable HTC Sense on it, though?)

    Got to agree. No way I'm gonna pay a $10/mo 4g fee when there's no 4g in SoCal so I might as well save the extra $240 instead of wasting it on a epic or evo...
