Cricket's Galaxy Discover

Although already available on other regional prepaid networks, the entry-level Samsung Galaxy Discover will make its way onto Cricket Wireless this summer.

Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich

The Discover has a 3.5-inch HVGA display with a 320x480-pixel resolution. It ships with a rather untouched version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (good news for those who don't like Samsung's TouchWiz UI).

A few Cricket touches

Some Cricket applications include its own brand of navigation and Muve Music, the carrier's music subscription service.

3-megapixel, sans flash

Though there is no front-facing camera, you'll find a 3-megapixel camera on the back. Unfortunately, there is no flash for taking photos in dim settings. To the right of the lens are two small slits for the speaker.
