Samsung Galaxy S II lands on Vodafone

Samsung Galaxy S II lands on VodafoneFor our money it's the best Android smartphone we've seen so far, and now Vodafone has taken the number of UK networks selling the Samsung Galaxy S II on contract to three.

The red-topped provider joins Three and O2 in offering the dual-core superphone on contract deals, leaving just Everything Everywhere sidekicks Orange and T-Mobile as the only two networks still languishing in Coming Soon Land.

Head over to Vodafone now and you can pick up the Android 2.3-infused 4.3in Super AMOLED Plus screened handset free of charge, providing you're willing to fork out £40 per month over a two year contract. For that you'll get 900 minutes of talk time of 750MB of mobile data a month.

Alternatively, if you're willing to cough up £300 up front, you can get by paying just £25 a month, though you'll only get 100 minutes of talk time and 500MB of precious data to play with.

You can go for shorter deals too, but cutting your contract duration to 18 or 12 months will typically add £5 or £10 a month respectively to comparable packages.

O2's packages, meanwhile, start at just £13.50 over 24 months, but that's for just 50 minutes of calls and 100MB of data, plus you'll pay £149 for the handset itself. Still, a total cost of ownership of just over £450 isn't bad, even if you'll barely be able to use it.

Your cheapest sensible offer that gives a free phone will set you back £32 a month over two years, and comes with 600 minutes and 500MB of data.

Three, meanwhile, offers all-you-can eat data and a hefty 2,000 monthly minutes on The One Plan, though you'll have to pay £40 per month for the privilege. There are slightly cheaper packages too, offering fewer minutes and data capped at 1GB.
