Boost Mobile was supposed to hold a big ol’ event tonight where they’d be unveiling their next phone, but it looks like they may have just spoiled their own surprise. Details just went up on their own site for a brand spankin’ new Android handset: the Samsung Galaxy Prevail.

Here’s what we know so far:

  • Runs Android 2.2
  • GPS
  • 2 megapixel rear camera with video recording
  • 3.2″ touchscreen
  • Bluetooth
  • Dimensions: 4.43″x2.26″x0.47″, weighs 3.8 oz

Is it a mega-spec’d superphone? Nope. But at $179 — and considering that that’s without a contract — it’s a pretty dang solid smartphone for dirt cheap. This’ll be Boost’s second pre-paid Android phone, with the heavy duty Motorola i1 being their first (though it seems they’ve stopped offering that one, at least online).
