Samsung Galaxy Pocket revealed

Samsung Galaxy Pocket revealedNot content with showing off the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus, Galaxy Ace 2, Galaxy Beam, Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy S Advance and Galaxy Tab 10.1 2 (phew) at Mobile World Congress last week, Sammo has revealed yet another Galaxy smartphone in London.

This time it’s the Samsung Galaxy Pocket saying hello, and – as the name suggests – it’s really tiny.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket specs include a 2.8in display (even smaller than the 3.14in Samsung Galaxy Mini) with a modest 240 x 320 resolution, and a 2MP rear camera.

There’s also an 832MHz processor, 3GB user memory (expandable via microSD), and a 1,200mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy Pocket will ship with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).

Simon Stanford, VP of Samsung’s UK & IRE Telecommunications & Networks Division, screamed: "With the Samsung Galaxy Pocket, we are building on the features we know our customers enjoy and get the most out of.

“This new device adds further breadth to the choice of smartphones we currently offer and provides a smartphone experience for even more customers at an affordable price."

Samsung hasn’t revealed what that “affordable price” is just yet, and simply tells us that the Galaxy Pocket will arrive in the UK “later this year”.

240x320? Cool, and while we're at it, let's introduce a new low-end laptop with an 800x600 screen!

Wasn't that what they did with the first netbooks? Seemed to work well.

Yep, everybody has one collecting dust on the shelf.

A 2.8in screen? And another 2.6 inches if you combine the top and bottom waste-of-space? What is the point?

Tell me about it.
Galaxy Pocket - 104 x 57.5 x 12mm
Wildfire S - 101 x 59 x 12mm

Nice job! An older phone with a larger screen, that actually has autofocus on the camera and an ambient light sensor is pretty much the same size.

Depends on pricing then, was estimating rather cheaper than Wildfire S, who knows though.
