Hands-on with Samsung's upcoming phones for prepaid carriers Boost and Virgin Mobile

Hands-on with Samsung's upcoming phones for prepaid carriers Boost and Virgin Mobile
So last night in the Big Apple, Samsung held a very quiet and low key event to debut a total of six devices that are headed to prepaid carriers Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile in the very near future. Considering the fact that the event wasn’t on the same scale as some other prior shindigs thrown by Samsung, we weren’t expecting to see something all that awe-inspiring. Rightfully so, that was the case last night, as the biggest phone to debut at the event was none other than a former flagship device – the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G for Boost Mobile.

As for the other devices, they’re obviously new ones that we haven’t seen, but they don’t come off as being in the same category as the former star smartphone. Specifically, Boost Mobile is also getting the entry-level Samsung Galaxy Rush Android smartphone and the quick messaging device in the Samsung Array. On the flip side, Virgin Mobile is getting the mid-range Samsung Galaxy Reverb, similar quick messaging Samsung Montage, and the good ‘ol flip phone in the Samsung Entro. We’ve got all the quick details regarding each device in the slideshow, so check them out if you’re curious.
