Samsung and Boost Mobile held an event to announce the Galaxy Prevail, an entry-level Android handset to land on the prepay wireless service backed by Sprint. The Prevail will join the older Motorola i1 in Boost’s Android handset lineup and is an excellent choice for those looking for a prepay smartphone. As rumored, specs for the Galaxy Prevail include:
- Android 2.2 with Access to Android Market™3.2-inch touchscreen
- 2-megapixel camera with video
- GPS enabled
- Bluetooth capable
- Easy access to Gmail and Google Talk
- Wireless Web enabled
- Switch between portrait and landscape
- Speakerphone with voice-activated dialing
- Telenav navigation, free and unlimited
- Supports microSD cards up to 32GB (2GB card included)
- Voice mail, caller ID, call waiting and three-way calling
The Prevail will debut on Boost Mobile in late April for a wallet-friendly $179. 99. Boost is a pre-pay service so this sub-$200 comes without a contract. The Galaxy Prevail will be available with Boost Mobile’s unique $50 Monthly Unlimited plan with shrinkage. This plan rewards customers for paying on time by reducing their bill by $5 when they pay six bills on time. If you pay promptly, you can cut your monthly bill to as low as $35 per month. Included in this plan is unlimited nationwide talk, text, Web, e-mail, IM and calls to 411.
