Boost Mobile Adds Samsung Galaxy Phones to Fall Roster
Boost Mobile added a trio of new Samsung phones to its lineup today, offering a little something for everyone.
On the higher end of the spectrum is the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G. The Android Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone comes with a 4.52-inch touchscreen and sports an eight-megapixel camera on back and a front-facing two-megapixel camera.
It also offers 3G and 4G data speeds using Sprint’s network and can be used as a Wi-Fi mobile hotspot for up to five devices.
The Galaxy S II 4G will be available on Sept. 6 in white or black and costs $370, which is pricey but also does not require an annual contract.
Next up is the Samsung Galaxy Rush, which is more of a mid-range Android device. It has a smaller 3.5-inch touchscreen and a rear-facing three-megapixel camera and 1.3-megapixel camera on front for video calls.
It might not offer some of the more powerful features of the Galaxy S II 4G but it also costs less at $150. It will be available in late September.
Last but not least, for texters who just want a basic phone with a full keyboard, there is the Samsung Array. On sale Sept. 4 for $60, the Array has a slide-out keyboard and includes a two-megapixel camera and Web browser.
Data plans for Boost Mobile’s Android phones cost $55 per month for unlimited voice, text and data, while the Samsung Array qualifies for the carrier’s Talk & Text Unlimited Plan, which starts at $45.
