Virgin Mobile is Part of the Android Family w/ Samsung Intercept

October 5, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

The migration of Android with pre-paid US carriers isn’t a brand new transition; Boost Mobile made the jump with the Motorola i1 a few months ago. Just because an idea isn’t brand new, however, doesn’t mean it’s not exciting. Look at the numbers: an Android phone for $30 bucks a month? Now you can root one for each hand..

The latest pre-paid carrier to join the Android Family! Virgin Mobile. Their weapon of choice? The Samsung Intercept.

We first noted Virgin Mobile’s Intercept plans last week, but today’s the day it hits the shelves. It turns out that they are exclusive to Target stores, the Virgin Mobile intercept will set you back $250 bucks up front (remember, no contract), with plans offered at $25 (300 min), $40 (1200 min), or $60 a month (unlimited min). All three plans included unlimited text and data.
