The Samsung Galaxy Prevail was officially announced at a Boost Mobile and Samsung Mobile press event in New York City. But someone at Boost decided it would be better to simply unveil the Prevail early and list the device on the Boost Mobile phone selection page.
Broken schedule or not, we can now confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Prevail is Boost Mobile’s second Android phone, joining the Motorola i1 to double the carrier’s Android offerings. Packed into the Galaxy Prevail’s 3.8-ounce body are a 3.2-inch touchscreen, Android 2.2, and a 2 megapixel camera. Similar to its Sprint brethren, the Prevail also ships with unlimited usage of TeleNav map and voice navigation, and has the following apps pre-loaded on the phone: Facebook, Hookt, Poynt, SCVNGR, ThinkFree Office, and Twidroyd.
And that packing will cost customers only $179.99. Yes, that’s incredibly affordable, and a strong indication that the feature phone to smartphone conversion will be a no-brainer when consumers can get a smartphone at that price. Android will have a great share of those converts. No, the Prevail is not one of the dual-core and 3D beasts coming out, but it will still offer the basic smartphone services for use with Boost’s Pay as You Go or Monthly Unlimited plans.
