We're getting reports from owners of Virgin Mobile's lovely Samsung Intercept that they're being bumped up to Android 2.2 Froyo today, finally, oh joyous day! This update, like most upgrades to newer Android versions, comes after months of speculation. The first date was December 17th of last year, then it was "sometime this spring," and now it's today. Today, today, callooh, callay!
The updates continue to pour in, this time, according to a tweet, Virgin Mobile USA will be updating their Samsung Intercept to Android 2.2 Froyo. The update will come "sometime this spring," and with it, Intercept users will finally get theirs hands on features that many users have been enjoying for quite some time.
Samsung Intercept users have been patiently waiting the arrival of Android 2.2 Froyo. Now being the second to newest operating system we should see it hit a few more devices before the focus turns to Gingerbread early next year. According to a leaked update sheet, we should be seeing the update beginning to be pushed to Intercept users starting December 17th.
The Samsung Intercept, Virgin Mobile’s first Android powered device, will be coming to Target stores starting today and online later this month and announced by Virgin Mobile. It is priced at $249.99 with no contract and monthly plans starting at $25 a month.
The Samsung Intercept has already been showcased in the real world once before, but that doesn't help everyone out there that may have wanted to get their hands on one. Luckily for the rest of them, Sprint's got your back. They've gone ahead and announced that the newest landscape QWERTY slider device landing on their shelves will be available this weekend, and it will be surprisingly affordable.
