In Samsung's world, the talk of the Galaxy is all about the recently unveiled S4 with its plethora of fancy new features and hardware enhancements, but don't go hating on its predecessor. The Galaxy S III is still a capable smartphone, which is why Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile are so excited to announce that they're now carrying Samsung's previous flagship device.

There was a time not too long ago where pretty much every Android phone was "high-end" in terms of price, and it was hard to find one for less than $199 on a 2-year contract. A lot changes in a couple of years. This week, Samsung and Boost Mobile took the opportunity to release the Samsung Galaxy Prevail, which is the first CDMA Android device to come to the MVNO.
