SaskTel is in the news for the second time today. This time though it’s not related to a superphone such as the Samsung Galaxy S II. Although it’s also made by the Korean manufacturer, the Samsung Galaxy 550 (i5500) is far from any high-end ambitions. This device, also known as Galaxy Europa, Galaxy 5, or Corby Smartphone in other parts of the world, will be launched by SaskTel soon.
Unfortunately we don’t yet know exactly when that will be, but the carrier already has a page up for the handset so that means that the release date isn’t far away at all.
SaskTel does, however, already provide full pricing information for the Galaxy 550. This little device will cost you $29.99 if you sign a new three-year contract, and it will be $99.99 with a two-year agreement, and $199.99 with just a one year commitment. If you’d rather get it sans contract, you’ll need to shell out $249.99.
The Samsung Galaxy 550 has a 2.8-inch 240×320 capacitive touchscreen, a 600 MHz processor, a 2 MP camera with video recording capabilities, 170 MB of internal storage space, microSD card support, “4G”, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 1200 mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy 550 runs Android 2.1 apparently upgradeable to Android 2.2 Froyo.
