T-Mobile will launch two affordable Android smartphones, the Move and the Samsung Galaxy Mini
The recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy Mini has gotten picked up by T-Mobile for the US market, alongside another affordable Android smartphone which will be sold under the name T-Mobile Move.
The Samsung Galaxy Mini (pictured below) has a 600 MHz processor, a 3.2-inch touchscreen, about 150 MB of user-accessible internal memory (expandable up to 32 GB via a microSD card slot), 3G, Wi-Fi, and all the other usual bells and whistles. The Galaxy Mini runs Android 2.2 Froyo. If you’re interested in this device, make sure you check out Florin’s hands-on video from Mobile World Congress 2011.
The T-Mobile Move has a smaller, 2.8-inch QVGA (240×320) touchscreen, and it’s also powered by a 600 MHz processor. It has a 2-megapixel camera (not something you see much of these days), HSDPA support (7.2 Mbps download), 150 MB of internal memory, and a microSD card slot (a 2 GB card will be included in the sales package). Like the Samsung Galaxy Mini, the T-Mobile Move will run Android 2.2 Froyo.
Both phones should be very cheap, and T-Mobile has even said that the Move will be the most affordable Android smartphone in their portfolio. And while there are no details about actual pricing yet, expect the Move to be free or at most $50, and the Galaxy Mini somewhere in the $29-$75 range. All prices with new two-year contract, the norm in the US market.
As for when they will become available, stay tuned. We’ll let you know as soon as we find out.
