I had wanted to upgrade Wendy’s Samsung Link for a while now as Virgin Mobile has had some entry level Android smartphones out for a while. Every time I went out and looked, they were sold out. I finally tracked one down today at Best Buy and decided to pick up a Samsung Galaxy 550. It’s not cutting edge but it runs Foursquare, Twitter, Angry Birds, Flickr, and a bunch of other apps pretty well while being a lot cheaper than an iPhone. While I don’t think it will make me want to give up my Blackberry, it’s a pretty decent little phone. The bad part is now our competition on Foursquare is heating up.
While I am talking about Virgin Mobile, Visions Electronics is giving away free Virgin phones with no contracts. You can cancel a month into it if you want. They have the LG Rumor 2, the Samsung Gravity 3, and some others.
