In the previous week, Verizon also released Samsung Illusion which comes with a prepaid plan of $80 and 1 GB of data. Samsung Illusion is actually the first smartphone released that costs $169.99. Based on Samsung's information in their site and Facebook page, the Galaxy Proclaim is priced at $179.99 and will be released within the following couple of weeks.
A few of the features of the upcoming Galaxy Proclaim include 1 GHz processor for the hardware, Android Gingerbread for the operating system, 5 Home screens, touch screen display with a 3.5-inch HVGA resolution, 3-megapixel camera, microSD slot which comes with a 2 GB memory card, and Bluetooth/Wi-Fi/A-GPS compatibilities.
Many have been asking questions concerning the data allocation for the Galaxy Proclaim on the corresponding unlimited plan. There are rumors stating StraightTalk representatives have been announcing that the Galaxy Proclaim will have a 4 GB data allotment per month in relation to the 1 GB plan by Verizon.
The overage rate for the plan offered by Verizon will be $0.05/MB. On the other hand, StraightTalk's plan will not have an overage rate.
Moreover, StraightTalk's maximum data limits per month are expected to be 2 GB for a certain month together with a 100 MB limit for one day.
Apparently, Android smartphones by Sprint do not have such limits because of the virtual operator's service agreement.
Considering these improvements, it is important to wonder on the time of the release of Galaxy Proclaim. While Sprint is planning to release 4G WiMax service by means of its Prepaid Group, StraightTalk consumers have asked for a smartphone on Verizon's network even in the past. For now, it is still unknown whether or not consumers will be satisfied with the Galaxy Proclaim.
