Boost Mobile is holding a press event tomorrow in New York City where the prepaid carrier should unveil, among other things, a new Android handset. Rumors had been gathering steam over the last few days that Boost will announce a no-contract Galaxy phone, dubbed the Prevail.
Engadget obtained a PDF document that outlines Boost Mobile's plans for the near future. Included in the file are the first preliminary details for the new smartphone.
Though an exact release date remains unknown, it appears that Boost will debut the Galaxy Prevail with a $179.99 sticker. Details for the handset include a 3.2-inch touch screen, a 2-megapixel camera, and support for microSD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
Though the processor and memory haven't been disclosed, I can't imagine that the former will be dual-core stuff. Boost Mobile's target demographic, after all, isn't tech enthusiasts or early adopters.
On the surface, the Galaxy Prevail looks and sounds very much like the Samsung Gio announced earlier this year. Should the hardware prove to be the same, an 800MHz processor should be more than sufficient for an affordable Android handset.
The Galaxy Prevail would mark Boost Mobile's second Android handset after the Motorola i1. CNET will be in attendance at the New York event, where we hope to be able to fill in a few more blanks blanks for the phone.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device.
