O2 lists Samsung Galaxy Ace for a tenner

Mobile phone network O2 is now carrying the Samsung Galaxy Ace, on a monthly contract for just £10.50 – under twice the cost of other mobile phone networks.

Samsung’s Galaxy Ace arrives with a 3.5-inch capacitive touch screen, whilst being powered by an 800Mhz processor with a 5 megapixel camera and a LED flash.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace has the look of the iPhone 4 with its silver sidings, in much the same way as the Galaxy S has the appearance of the iPhone 3GS.

The handset runs from Android ‘Froyo’ 2.2 with the Samsung TouchWiz 3.0 UI on top of that OS, where the BBC iPlayer software can run on the platform along with the devices inherent ability to play DivX and Xvid video files – just as the Galaxy S.

O2 has Samsung Galaxy Ace listed for free on a £10.50 tariff, with 50 minutes attached and a 250 text message allowance. The other mobile phone networks such as Vodafone, T-Mobile and Three all are carrying the iPhone 4 look-a-like mobile around the £25 price point – more than double the price of O2’s offering.
