Samsung Galaxy Proclaim comes to Straight Talk, priced at $180
Just because you favor pre-paid plans, doesn't mean that you must stick to boring feature phones. Take the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim, for example – it is a new budget-friendly Android smartphone that virtual carrier Straight Talk just added to its portfolio of devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Proclaim is but a re-branded Samsung Illusion, which is why both devices share the same hardware specifications. To start, the smartphone sports a 3.5-inch display with a resolution of 320 by 480 pixels. Inside it hums a 1GHz single-core processor, and the 3-megapixel camera on the back further cements this smartphone in the entry-level category. Android 2.3 Gingerbread comes out of the box, with no word as to whether the Galaxy Proclaim will ever taste a different flavor.

When it comes to pricing, getting one will cost you $180 outright, which seems like a fair deal considering that a long-term commitment is not required. As Straight Talk clarifies, only two plans work with the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim: the $45/30-day unlimited plan offering unlimited nationwide calling, texting, and mobile internet access, and the $60/30-day unlimited plan, which provides the same goodies along with unlimited international calls to select countries.
