Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 lands in UK

Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 lands in UKAmidst all this chatter about the landing of the Galaxy S III, it's easy to forget that there is another Android birth of late - the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 which has arrived in the UK to go on sale.

Clearly, it's not in the league of the Galaxy S III or even the Galaxy S II - but the Galaxy Mini 2 is going for a whole different market. And it represents great value for money with an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM and 3.27-inch screen with resolution of 320 x 480.

Powering this baby, it's Android Gingerbread 2.3 which is obviously last season's favourite but still a very capable and fluid version of the Android OS. It'll be a perfect fit for those who are are dipping their toes into smartphone waters for the first time - which is just as well as that's the market Samsung is clearly aiming at.

Nevertheless, TechRadar has put the gadget through its paces and found it to be a snappy little blighter. Whatsmore, with a 1300mAh battery, it's not got a bad span. The 3MP snapper is pretty good for a budget device and 4GB of storage to fill.

T-Mobile appear to have first dibs - but if you're prepared to sign up to a basic £15/month contract, you can nab one for free.

Can't say fairer than that!

If you're looking for a compact, budget phone you can get yours for free on a £15.50/month 24-month contract from T-Mobile now.

For ~£15 a month you can either have this, an Orange San Diego or a Huawei G300...makes the Galaxy Mini 2 seem a little pointless.

Or a Desire S

Also an admirable phone (for £15 per month), better than the G300, IMO.

or a lumia 710.

or a lumia 710.
Personally, for under £90 I'd buy one of those outright and then stick a SIMO contract in it. I reckon that'd work out cheaper over two years (and gives you the freedom to change network/get a retention deal after 12 months).

This has been out for over a month in the UK, it hasn't *just* landed?!
