[MWC] We know that times are still pretty hard at the moment, so it is no surprise to see handset manufacturers concentrate more than just the high end side of things – in fact, the entry level and mid-range market are normally where the big money is. Folks who have been hankering after an Android smartphone which isn’t top-of-the-line can look forward to the Samsung Galaxy Mini which was announced at Mobile World Congress 2011. Touted to arrive Stateside sometime this spring, it should retail for anywhere from $50 to $75 on a two-year contract. Specifications-wise, you won’t have your jaw dropping to the floor, since it looks like something out from the beginning of last year – we’re talking about a 600 MHz processor, a 3.2-inch display, 3G connectivity, a 3-megapixel camera and 150MB of internal memory with a microSD memory card slot to augment that. At least it comes with Android 2.2 Froyo as the operating system of choice, so the 150MB of memory shouldn’t be too much of an issue.
