AT&T announces Galaxy Appeal for GoPhone prepaid service

AT&T today announced a new Android smartphone for their prepaid GoPhone service, listing it with an early June release.  Called the Samsung Galaxy Appeal, it’s the carrier’s first slide sliding QWERTY Android for their non-contract customers. Well, that is if you somehow discount the Pantech Crossover.  Moving on…

Specifications are decent for a prepaid handset and include an 800MHz Snapdragon S1 CPU, 512MB RAM, 3.2-inch HVGA display, and 3-megapixel camera. Pricing hasn’t been determined yet however we hope it might fall under the $200-$250 price range that most of the GoPhone smartphones run today.  Walmart will be the first retailer to offer the Galaxy Appeal come June 5th with wider availability expected on July 15th.
