Vodafone lists new Samsung youth mobile

Mobile phone network Vodafone has announced it is carrying the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Y, from the mobile phone network’s ‘Coming Soon’ page on their website.

Samsung unveiled at the end of August a new naming convention for their mobile phones, where the letter succeeding the word 'Galaxy' relates to a specific category of handsets.

Samsung's Galaxy ‘Y’ model stands for ‘Young, where these are all entry-level mobile devices for emerging markets or the younger arena with at a more sensitive price point.

The Galaxy Y was launched at the same time as four other mobile phones, in the Samsung Galaxy M Pro, Y Pro and W devices.

The new handset tips up with a 3-inch capacitive touch screen and a 832MHz processor, a 2 megapixel camera and running from the latest Android 'Gingerbread' 2.3 OS with the TouchWiz overlay.

Vodafone hasn't made public any prices or tariff details for the Samsung Galaxy Y, although they are currently carrying the Samsung Galaxy Ace on a £25 a month contract with 500 minutes, a 250 text message bundle and a 500MB data allowance.

One Mobile Ring believes this deal could be matched by Vodafone, on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Y mobile phone.
