O2 Drops Galaxy Ace Price To £10.50 Per Month

O2 is offering the Samsung Galaxy Ace, an Android-based smartphone that was announced two months ago at the MWC in Barcelona, for only £10.50 per month on a two year contract.

The deal, which can be found here, provides you with only 50 minutes and 250 texts and no data allowance, which will put off a number of potential buyers.

Arguably, it's not the cheapest Android phone around, that title goes to the T-Mobile Pulse which costs £30 with a £10 top up.

It is however the most affordable Android contract so far on the market for those who want something better than the Pulse, but do not want to spend £200 on buying a phone outright.

The Ace is a simpler version of the Galaxy S; it runs on Android 2.2, has a 5-megapixel camera, a 3.5-inch 480x320 pixel screen and a microSD card slot.

O2 is also offering a free Take That DVD plus some exclusive content for those who have a liking for the boy band.

Another potential deal might include the LG Optimus One from T-Mobile, with 200 minutes, 200 texts and unlimited mobile internet data for only £12 per month on a two year contract.

It doesn't have a screen as big as the Galaxy Ace and the camera has a lower pixel count, but then you get four times the number of minutes and unlimited data allowance.
