Today we were talking about how the Intercept was starting to make its way into bits and pieces of Sprint’s system, but now, the announcement’s here and it’s the real deal. Most notably, the Android-powered landscape QWERTY slider will go to market for under $100 (by a penny, anyway) on contract after rebate, making it a value-oriented alternative for the monsters like theEVO 4G and Epic 4G that Sprint is pushing on the high end. Of course, if you pay a midrange price, you’re going to get midrange features; the 3.2 megapixel cam with video capture, isn’t going to blow anyone away, and amazingly, Sammy has gone with an EV-DO Rev. 0 radio (as opposed to Rev. A) which means you’ll be limping along with slower data speeds than you’d expect from your average modern CDMA smartphone. Look for it to hit Sprint’s site and stores starting this Sunday, July 11.
