After acquiring T-Mobile MVNO Simple Mobile back in May, it looks like Tracfone is still making big moves in the prepaid wireless space by adding yet another capable Android handset to their NET10 arm, this time with the Samsung Galaxy S2. A tipster linked us to the user manual for the device (SGH-S959G) which, as it stands, hasn’t been official announced, nor is it showing up on NET10’s website.

Samsung’s 2011 flagship will finally give NET10 customers the option of a high performance, dual-core device — one packing Samsung’s speedy Exynos processor no less. Since this is essentially a rebranded AT&T device, you can expect the Galaxy S2 to function on NET10 via AT&T towers, while enjoying a $45 a month, unlimited prepaid plan. Still no word on pricing for the SGS2 but we expect it to hit somewhere around $350. Anyone suddenly feeling tempted to join up with NET10?

Thanks, @RichardGilboy!
