Samsung Galaxy Prevail makes an early arrival on Boost Mobile's site
Previously, we reported a few days ago that Boost Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Prevail just might make an appearance at an event being held in New York City tonight. Although information regarding the handset has been slim thus far, its unexpected early arrival on Boost Mobile’s web site is surprising indeed.

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!!

sorry, but only 800 mgeabytes is the size of the processor. that is dissappoi9nting to me but i would still buy because of the quality and the experience of my other galaxy S phone.

i thought android phones were required to have atleast a 3 megapixel?? and if this had a keyboard i would bought it :(

Were required to have at least 3mp? by whom? I have to agree about the not having a keyboard bites, but when compared to the cost of other plans and phones I'm willing to sacrifice the QWERTY keyboard.

This is expensive. $179.99?? I can get the LG Optimus V for $150.00. If would be one thing if it had a better proccessor but anyways..

15. GrimJim unregistered

Expensive?!? Have you seen the price for other Android phones with contracts? We're talking over $300!!!

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 !

virgin mobile raise the optimus v price to $200

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.

this phone is so damn bomb! cant wait to buy it :)

@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!

14. GrimJim unregistered

Woops, didn't mean to repeat the $200 on the Intercept.

YOU do the math!!! The optimus has a dedicated gpu. So that with the 600 mhz is a lot better. Do your homework before posting fool.

How is the texting speed? Do you receive text messages relatively fast or does it take forever like most of the boost mobile phones? we need a video for how fast the phone is.

22. unknownprevail unregistered

Tfrudakis raises a good question have the i1 thinking about prevail and if messaging is instantaneous like back in the day when almost everyone had razr's then i'm sold
