AT&T’s prepaid GoPhone service just got another cool new phone in its line-up, and this time it’s the Samsung Galaxy Appeal. The Galaxy Appeal is a slider smartphone that comes running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Slide out its display and there is a full QWERTY keyboard to behold. Other features include a 3.2″ display with a 480 x 320 resolution, the device is running on a 800MHz ARM Cortex A5 processor and 512MB of RAM, plus it’s packing in a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera with 3x zoom and a video recording capability at 24fps. The phone is also earth-friendly, as its plastic parts are made of 80-percent recycled material. Plus, it ships in reduced packaging material, which helps cut down on paper waste.
The Samsung Galaxy Appeal Slider can be used in tandem with GoPhone’s $50 Unlimited Talk & Text nationwide plan or the $25 Unlimited Text with 250 minutes nationwide GoPhone plan. Data plans are available for 1GB for $25 per month, 200MB for $15 per month, and 50MB for $5 per month.
Overall, with specs like these, the Samsung Galaxy Appeal slider can be best described as a mid-range to budget type of smartphone, especially since features like a front-facing camera are missing, along with LTE support. So it should come as no surprise then that the Samsung Galaxy Appeal will go on sale first at Walmart for $149, starting June 5th. On July 15th, it will become available at other retailers.
