Another Straight Talk Android smartphone running on Verizon network has been spotted in Walmart store by a Howard Forum user, same as LG Optimus Zip. This time, it’s Galaxy S Showcase, a renamed version of a two-year old original Galaxy S. Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy S Showcase is available for $250 in select Walmart stores only, for now, and obviously will be added to Straight Talk’s website pretty soon.
The Galaxy S Showcase has its own pros and cons and it will depend on the users if they find it being a good or a bad deal. The phone is overpriced considering it’s a two-year old phone having an S II and S III versions following but the Verizon’s coverage may be a huge plus for many. Considering specs, Showcase comes with a 4-inch WVGA Super Amoled screen, a 1GHz processor and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. However, Straight Talk also sells Samsung Galaxy S II on AT&T HSPA+ network running on Android 2.3 for $349.99.
Provided image of Galaxy S Showcase on Howard Forum shows the phone being compatible with only $45 Unlimited plan but since it’s Android, the international texting is included.
