Until AT&T gets to announce its Galaxy S III, the second-largest US carrier has another new Galaxy smartphone to sell: the Samsung Galaxy Appeal. Since this is included in AT&T’s GoPhone line-up, it’s obviously not a high-end device.
Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the Galaxy Appeal is AT&T’s first pre-paid handset to feature a sliding QWERTY keyboard. The phone also comes with a 3.2 inch HVGA display, 3G, 3MP rear camera, 512MB of RAM, 1.8GB of ROM, an 800MHz processor, MicroSD card support (up to 32GB), and a 1,300 mAh battery. The handset’s “plastic parts are made of 80-percent recycled material.”
AT&T says the Samsung Galaxy Appeal will be first available via Walmart, starting June 5, for only $149.99. The smartphone will be launched via all other AT&T GoPhone distribution channels on July 15.
