One of the best things I can say about AT&T’s new Samsung Galaxy Appeal is that it’s another Android smartphone prepaid option for a carrier that has a limited roster in this area. It’s a solidly middle-of-the-road 3G handset, with Android 2.3 as its operating system, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that didn’t play nice with my fingers, and a basic 3.2-megapixel camera.

The off-contract price is a reasonable $150 for the smartphone package, which is a more affordable choice for penny-counters who prefer flexibility over contract commitments (compare with often $300 for higher-end prepaid Android devices). The Galaxy Appeal goes on sale June 5 for Wal-Mart and June 15 through AT&T retail channels.
