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.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
