Samsung Galaxy Pocket cleared for sale

Samsung Galaxy Pocket cleared for saleThere is absolutely no doubt that Samsung has a major hit on its hands with the Galaxy range. The Galaxy S was a stunner, the SII took it to new heights whilst the SIII is being eagerly awaited by many. Even the Galaxy Note has proved a belter, despite our initial doubts.

Samsung thinks there is still room for more handsets in that stable though - which is why this modest little baby will be heading to pockets in the not-too-distant future.

The Galaxy Pocket is for those who like things a little smaller and gives us a 2.8" screen, Android Gingerbread 2.3, an 832MHz processor and 3GB of internal storage. The camera is a very substandard (by today's ratings) 2MP jobbie.

It's been cleared by the FCC for sale in the US and looks like it is heading to AT+T. We're wondering how long it'll be until Blighty gets hold of it. Or of there is even an appetite here for this.

The reason we ask is there comes a time when you have to realise that you're flogging that horse a little too hard. HTC did it and Samsung has been doing the same with a new Galaxy tablet seemingly announced on a weekly basis.

We wonder if this will be something to light your fire, or dampen your flame... let us know below.

It won't interest anyone here, but I think there's definitely a market for these things. Low end budget contract deals like one that was on here for 7.50 a month.

There certainly is... I won't buy one, but I know there's a huge demand for entry level Androids.

The problem with that demand is the number of people who think they're getting a cut-price S2 rather than a cheap, crappy, underpowered "smart" phone.

Well those people can't be helped.

I like Samsung.. But it's getting out of hand with all these different models.

Myself, a fairly up to date technology person has lost track, not sure how normal folk are meant to know which phone to buy.

Be glad it's not as bad as Sony was during the cassette walkman days then. Makes samsung look like they need to up their game.

I'm just glad I don't work in phone retail anymore. I already hear "this galaxy ace isn't as good as my friends iPhone 4S... Android sucks". This isn't completely the consumers fault though! Google needs to introduce a new "Gold" standard for certain handsets or something to allow consumers to make better comparisons and educated guess in their purchases. Even if it does mean a little bit more fragmentation, it already exists but at least it would be a defined and clear segregation! This is really not helping them in the android vs iOS battle....

Maybe need to keep lower handsets back an update, then again they seem to be managing that fairly well anyway.

Does seem some merit in it, similar to what Nokia did with series 40 and 60 phones.
