Virgin Mobile Samsung Intercept

Last we heard, Virgin Mobile's Samsung Intercept was set to receive an update to Android 2.2 "about" March 25th. That may have been a couple of weeks ago, but it appears that the Intercept's Froyo update is finally almost here. Several owners of the device have reported receiving a text message proclaiming that "The Froyo Update for the Virgin Mobile Samsung Intercept is finally coming out on Monday the 11th," with a link that leads to this page. The site explains that Intercept users will be getting notification of an update sometime in the next few weeks and that, once the 5-15 minute upgrade process is complete, Froyo and all of the following enhancements will be installed:

  • Exchange Active Sync updates
  • Ability to install applications to external memory card
  • Improved Bluetooth device support
  • Bluetooth Voice dialing
  • Improved operating system performance
  • Dedicated phone, application and browser icons on every home screen

The Virgin Mobile's Intercept update may be coming a few months later than the Sprint variations, but the good news is that it's finally almost here. All of you Intercept owners out there should keep an eye out for an update notification coming soon. Once you do get Froyo up and running, you'll come back and tell us all about it, won't you?
