Samsung Gem Android device headed for regional CDMA carrier

There certainly is a market for entry level Android smartphones. LG has one in the Optimus One, and that device is selling like mad — and it will soon be heading to Virgin Mobile.The above-pictured device is the Samsung Gem, and it will head to regional CDMA carriers sometime in the near future. The device features a 3.2 inch touchscreen, 800MHz processor, 3.2 megapixel camera, and microSD expansion up to 16GB. Unfortunately, it will come with Android 2.1. Given how we’ve seen Android updates progress, I doubt this one ever gets 2.2 or higher. We’re not sure when, where, or for how much this device will launch, but it should be soon, regional carriers, and cheap.
