3 UK has announced that the Samsung S3370 touchscreen smartphone will be available on its network on PAYG and oddly enough, not on more lucrative pay monthly contracts.
The phone comes with a 2.7-inch QVGA resistive touchscreen display, a 1.3-megapixel camera, a microSD card reader which supports up to 8GB cards, a FM radio plus a raft of socially-oriented features like Skype, Twitter, Facebook, Windows Live Messenger and email on 3.
Sylvia Chind who is the head of Branded Devices at Three UK said in a statement that "We're exited [sic] to be ranging [sic] the Samsung S3370. It’s the first branded touch device to be specifically tailored to our Pay As You Go customers. Together with our strong 3G network this social networking phone brings our customers the internet services they love at a low price"
The phone will be available for sale for only £80 at 3 UK. Amongst other contenders as well is the more snap-friendly Sony Ericsson T715; it is on sale for the same price and comes with a 3.2-megapixel camera, the C903 which has a 5-megapixel snapper.
The S3370 will come with a £10 starter top up and free Skype-to-Skype calls; it will be the cheapest PAYG 3G mobile phone from the network operator.
