We received an invitation to New York to join Samsung as they look to unveil a new device for pre-paid carrier Boost Mobile, but had no idea what to expect. The event isn’t scheduled to go down until Tuesday, but Engadget’s received a 19-paged document in which they found the Samsung Galaxy Prevail, a low-end Android handset.

From the looks of this thing, it’s about as bare an Android phone as you’re going to get. It has a now-smallish 3.2 inch capacitive display, a 2 megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooh, and expandable memory (among other usual suspects) – that’s  all that could be mustered up as far as specs go.

And judging by that list, I’d say don’t expect too much excitement in other areas such as processor, RAM and which version of Android it’ll run. Virgin also looks to be carrying the device, according to the same source. The device will cost $180 so this is as good as it’s going to get if you want a cheap introduction to Android.
