Galaxy Appeal

AT&T announced the Samsung Galaxy Appeal today, another addition to its prepaid smartphone lineup. The Appeal will be unique because it will be the first prepaid smartphone that offers a QWERTY sliding keyboard. As more smartphones drop physical keyboards, there is still a large contingent that demands them, so it's good to see the option in the prepaid category.

The Appeal, like many of the other prepaid options, will feature lower end specs. Here there are:

  • 3.2-inch HVGA TFT 480 x 320 screen
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • 512MB RAM
  • 1.8GB ROM
  • 800MHz processor
  • 3MP rear-facing camera
  • SD slot that supports up to 32GB
  • Made with 80& recycled materials

AT&T prepaid data plans are as follows:

  • 1GB - $25/month
  • 200MB - $15/month
  • 50MB - $5/month

If you're interested in the Galaxy Appeal, it will be released on June 5th to Walmart stores. On July 15th, it can be purchased from other AT&T GoPhone locations.
