NET10 to start offering the Samsung Galaxy S2 soon?
Duking it out with major wireless carriers doesn’t come easy for a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MNVO) like Net10, as newer and more attractive handsets are usually confined to exclusivity. If you have been eyeing on making that jump to prepaid service, but aren’t quite enthralled by NET10’s Android lineup, you’ll be pleased to know that Samsung’s flagship phone (in 2011) is apparently heading to NET10.
As reported by Phandroid, NET10 may start adding the Samsung Galaxy S2 to its lineup in the coming weeks. Nothing is set in stone yet and you won’t see details of the Samsung Galaxy S2 on NET10’s website. What they do have is a leaked user manual of the Samsung Galaxy S2 (SGH-S959G) phone for the operator, which you can find right here.
Without any confirmation from NET10, we still don’t know how much the Galaxy S2 will go for. The most expensive model that the operator has is the LG Optimus Black, which is being sold off-contract for $329.99. The Galaxy S2 should be priced slightly more than the Optimus Black, perhaps north of $300. Not bad at all for phone with 4.3-inch Super AMOLED WVGA display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and a more than adequate 8MP snapper.
We’ll be keeping our eyes on this one and update you once we hear more from NET10. Will the Galaxy S2 be enough to satisfy your prepaid urges?
