Boost and Samsung announced the Samsung Galaxy Prevail today. It’s an entry level Android Phone running on the CDMA network. Priced at $179.99, the Prevail will be available at the end of the month.
Features include WiFi, 2 MP camera without flash, 3.2″ 320 x 480 screen and Android 2.2.Other than the low spec camera this looks to a very nice phone for the price. Compared with the i1, the Prevail is less than half the price and has a larger screen, relatively current Android version and runs on a much faster network. If Chirp is important to you, beware that there is no Push To Talk, however.
Early reports are that Prevail can only be used on the $50/month Unlimited Plan (with Shrinkage) and not on the 10 cents per minute Pay As You Go plan.
I’ve posted more information and links to several hands on reports at Prepaid Phone News.
