Wow, Straight Talk is getting an Android phone! Previously the smartphones that were carried by Straight Talk were the Nokia models. The phone pictured above is an Samsung Galaxy Precedent. The new Android phone will retail at $150 and eligible for only the $45 a month Unlimited plan. They are claiming that this is a CDMA phone (Sprint). I haven’t heard much about the specs of this unit as far as processor or as to what flavor of Android OS loaded on to it is. I’ve included a video below talking about the new Straight Talk Android Phone.


UPDATE 8/23/11: We were contacted by Tracfone Wireless (owners of Straight Talk) and have corrected the video below to show the correct web address for pre ordering the new phone. Which is here. The specs for the new Android phone are as follows:

Verizon is expected to release another set of 4G LTE cities tomorrow which will then make them cover over half of the U.S. population. They want to have 4G every where 3G is right now by the end of 2013.  I’ve seen speeds of 12-13 mbs on VZW 4G LTE network, however, sometimes its slower than 3G. For the most part its great but it does have its days where its just as slow as 3G.
