Samsung Galaxy Prevail II aims to change definition of “entry level”

With the wide spread of the Samsung device family resulting from the sustained success of the Samsung Galaxy smartphone line comes devices like the Galaxy Prevail II. This device is being offered for under $200 in the United States without a contract with the mobile data carrier Boost Mobile, and it's doing so with specifications that aren't half bad.
