Samsung Galaxy Prevail makes an early arrival on Boost Mobile's site

At this point, it’s more than likely the Samsung Galaxy Prevail will be getting its red carpet treatment tonight in New York City, but if you want to catch a sneak peek of this device right now, you only need to point your web browser to Boost Mobile’s web site. From the looks of it, the handset will be sporting an intriguing no-contract price of $179 – which is pretty great considering there is no contracts required with it.
Furthermore, we’re greeted with specs like a 3.2” touchscreen, 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, GPS, and will be powered by Android 2.2 Froyo. Sure, it’s not the most demanding Android handset out there, but it’s nice to know that Boost is supplementing their Android lineup with this affordable one.

UPDATED: It has been confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Prevail will become available for purchase later this month at Boost Mobile's exclusive retail stores, the carrier's official web store, and through some independent wireless dealers across the country. By the middle of May, the Galaxy Prevail will also be available at selected retail outlets nationwide.
I'm definitely switching back to Boost for this phone!! BUT Only if it has a 1GHz processor!! If not then I'm staying with my LG Optimus V!!

Boost Mobile is a really good company and cost effective ! The phones may not be as advance as other phones from other networks but hey you get all these features for JUST $50 a month, other companies may charge you $70-$120 a month for slower networks. You cant beat that !

LG Optimus V has a 600 MHZ processor and it cost $150, The Samsung Galaxy prevail Has a 800 MHZ Processor and is $180 for $30 more you get 200 MHZ more. You do the math.

Also figure in the plans... Virgin your are stuck at $45/m for unlimited Boost you start at $50, but after 6/months of consecutive on time payments you are at $45/m, 6 more months you are down to $40, and after the next 6 months you are down to $35/m and that is where their shrinkage plan stops. They reward you for making on time payments!! That their sold me on getting this phone on the boost mobile service.

@Boti95 and Wm Isa- Better check Virgin's website again. Optimus V is $200. Their Samsung Intercept is also $200. Same Android version, same processor speed, better MP on their camera, is WiFi capable, and has a QWERTY slide out keyboard. Also $200. The only things that I don't like about the Boost mobile version is the no wifi and no slide out QWERTY keyboard. I could careless about the fact that the camera is only 2mp. It's better than my current phone's camera which I rarely use, and from the Cnet review it appears to take decent clear photos. So who cares if it is only 2mp. What I care about is the cost of the phone, $179.99, and the cost of the service. The service plan starts at $50, and with shrinkage it reduces down by $5/ 6 months of on time payments. The max reduction is $15, or down to $35/month for unlimited talk text and data!!!! I know what phone I will be getting come the end of April!
