Looks like Sprint's underling companies have been busy working on bringing the first taste of 4G to the pay-as-you-go market. Piggybacking off of Sprint's 4G WiMax network, Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile will both begin offering one 4G-capable smartphone each on May 31st: the HTC EVO V 4G on Virgin and the EVO Design 4G will be representing all that WiMax has to offer on Boost.

The EVO V appears to be some sort of rehash of the EVO 3D:

  • 4.3-inch qHD display
  • 1GB RAM
  • 5MP rear shooter with 3D imaging, 1.3MP front camera
  • 4GB internal storage, microSD card slot
  • 1730mAh battery
  • Android 4.0 with Sense 3.6

There's no word on processor or clock speed, but I'll be surprised if it's not the same 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon that's in the original EVO 3D.

Pay-as-you-go carriers have never had the latest and greatest handsets, but many are trying to offer more higher-end devices than ever before. Thus is the case with Boost Mobile, which just announced it would be getting the LG Marquee, a modest mid-ranger for anyone on a budget, on January 23rd for $280. While there is no sort of contact involved, users who buy this device are required to purchase an "Android Monthly Unlimited" plan for $55 a month.

We told you yesterday that Android 2.3 started rolling out to the Samsung Replenish on Sprint, and now it looks like the eco-friendly handset is coming to one of Sprint's pay-as-you-go carriers, Boost Mobile.

Boost announced the handset this morning, and while it's not a game-changing device in terms of spec, it does have a nice price tag: $99. No contract. You can't beat that with a stick.

Specs:

  • 2.8-inch display (240x320) with physical QWERTY
  • 600MHz single-core processor
  • 2MP rear shooter
  • Android 2.3
  • Made from recycled materials

Like I said, it's not a game changer.

Samsung-Transform-Ultra

Boost Mobile, a pay-as-you-go subsidiary of Sprint, is set to add yet another Android-powered device to its lineup: the Samsung Transform Ultra. Like most other Boost phones, the Transform Ultra isn't as powerful as something that you'll find a post-paid carrier, but the lack of a required agreement makes this a very attractive product nonetheless.

While some of the more detailed hardware specs were left out of the official press release (see below), here is what we do know about the Transform Ultra:

  • 1GHz processor
  • 3MP rear camera, VGA front
  • Slide-out QWERTY
  • Android 2.3.x

As I said, it's far from a powerhouse, but it's nothing to scoff at, either.

SamsungGalaxyPrevail

No one ever accused Boost Mobile of overachieving on the Android phone front, and the carrier's latest announcement doesn't really do much to change that. Indeed, just as expected, Sprint's little tagalong used its recent press conference to unveil its first CDMA Android handset: the Samsung Galaxy Prevail.

With an itsy-bitsy 3.2-inch display, a measly 2MP camera, and a tiny 2GB microSD card out of the box, the Prevail isn't about to blow anyone away - but then again, we geeks probably aren't Boost Mobile's target demographic here.

It has been rumored that Samsung and Boost Mobile will announce the Android 2.2 Galaxy Prevail at tonight's event in New York City, and that has been all but verified now. A Galaxy Prevail teaser is live on Boost's website, accompanied by a "sold online soon" badge and a cool $180 price tag, which seems like a pretty good deal for a no-contract phone.

From a tech aspect, the only thing that we know about the Galaxy Prevail at this point is what you see below, but it already appears to be the best choice from the current Boost lineup, even with that measly 2MP camera and a tiny 3.2" screen.

Have a craving for a push-to-talk Android handset and hefty price tag? Well, then look no further because it seems that Motorola and pre-paid MVNO Boost Mobile have you covered.

That’s right, if you head over to Best Buy’s site, you can find the product page for the Motorola i1, the first Android iDEN handset to hit the market. I’d imagine you’d have to be pretty crazy for the push-to-talk capabilities that the phone offers though, because you’ll have to pay $349.99 to pick one up once it hits Best Buy’s shelf.
