Samsung Galaxy Proclaim Android phone, putting it on sale for $149.99. Use free ship to store to avoid the $2.97 shipping charge. The Proclaim is probably Straight Talk's most popular smartphone and this is the first time I've seen it on sale anywhere for less than the $179.99 list price. The Proclaim was also spotted today at the $149.99 price in at least one Walmart store.
The Proclaim's owes its popularity to at least three things;.
- Along with the LG Zip, it's Straight Talk's least expensive phone on the Verizon network - a must for anyone where Verizon is the only carrier with decent coverage. Although Verizon's 3G data isn't as fast as T-Mobile or AT&T's, it tends to be more reliable and available in more places.
- The Proclaim's processor runs at 1Ghz, fast for a sub $200 phone, especially a sub-$200 Straight Talk phone.
- Ample internal memory (approx. 1 GB) available for storing apps. Many phones in this price class have only 100 to 200 MB, limiting users to only a few downloaded apps.
