Back in August, Samsung decided to revamp the naming scheme it uses for its Android-powered smartphones, and to celebrate that event, the company announced no less than four new handsets. Among those (and the highest-specced of the bunch) was the Samsung Galaxy W. The “W” in that name apparently stands for “wonder”, which should translate into “high quality, strategic models, perfect for those seeking a balance between style and performance”. Whether all of these buzzwords have made it into the Galaxy W intact or not, that’s for you to decide of course. And if you’re in the UK, you now have the opportunity to do just that.
After popping up at O2 and at third party retailers in SIM-free form a while back, the Samsung Galaxy W is now available at Three. The operator offers the device both on Pay Monthly plans as well as on Pay as you go.
If you don’t mind signing long term contracts, you can get the Galaxy W for free. Plans start at £22 per month (for which you get 100 minutes, 5,000 texts, and 500 MB of data) and go all the way up to £32 per month. That amount nets you Three’s The One Plan, which gives you 2,000 minutes, 5,000 texts, and All-you-can-eat Data each month.
If you’d rather get the Samsung Galaxy W on Pay as you go, the price being asked is £249.99. If you’re interested in picking up this smartphone from Three, this is the link to click.
The Samsung Galaxy W has a 3.7-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a 1.4 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 2 GB of ROM, microSD card support, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA, 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,500 mAh battery. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
