Samsung Galaxy Y ‘Youth’ mobile phone available with Vodafone

Mobile phone network Vodafone has now listed the youth orientated SamsungGalaxy Y handset, starting on contracts from £10.50 or £13 with a data allowance.

Samsung launched the Galaxy Y in August, alongside the Qwerty keyboard based Galaxy Y Pro and Samsung Galaxy W mobile phones.

At the same time as unveiling those devices, Samsung announced a new naming convention for their Galaxy devices, where the letter now succeeding the ‘Galaxy’ name relates to a predefined category.

Samsung has stated the "Y" relates to ‘Young’, where these are entry models or strategic models for emerging markets or a younger audience, with a more sensitive to price attached.

The Galaxy Y arrives with a 3-inch QVGA 320x240 TFT LCD screen, whilst being powered by a 832MHz processor, with a 2 megapixel camera and a 2GB microSD card, running from the Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 OS with the Samsung TouchWiz overlay to that platform.

Vodafone is carrying the Samsung Galaxy Y on price plans that start with 100 minutes, a 500 text message bundle and for just £10 .50 or for £3 more with a 100MB data allowance, which includes 500MB of BT Openzone Wi-Fi access.
