    Looks like an entry-level Verizon device.

    From what I can see on the package photos and a quick look at the online tutorial it seems to be an inexpensive Proclaim running Ice Cream Sandwich. While I like my Proclaim I've always thought that it was over priced. The $100 price is much more in line with what I think it's worth. Having Android 4.0 would be sweet. Now if they could only give it Jelly Bean with Google Now I might accidentally on purpose drop my proclaim. Don't tell my wife I said that.

    Found this link.

    Sammy calls it the Discover but mentions it's for Straight Talk and Net 10. Has specs consistent with the photos above. Mentions that it has 4 gigs of internal memory which would be a big improvement over the Proclaims 1 gig.

    Claims the camera's great which would be an improvement on the Proclaims camera.

    Yeah this is identical to the Discover sold by Bell Canada. Based on the Samsung specs upthread, this must be running on AT&T.

    Looks like a CDMA brother of my Galaxy Discover. Specs are identical.

    Ah yes, I suppose the C for CDMA is logical.

    The model number indicates the Centura is a CDMA device. The map on the box, and the "Update Phone Profile and PRL" tutorial, suggests the phone is Verizon 3G.

    Hummm. I'm not sure about that. The Illusion has a gig of ram but as I remember from the Sammy site the Proclaim only has 512 meg; but that's from memory and lord knows my memory is spotty. Sammy seems to have taken the Proclaim down from their site. I guess that's a sign of the Proclaims demise.
