Samsung Galaxy Pocket delivers Gingerbread on the cheap
If you thought that the Samsung Galaxy mini 2 was pretty low-end, just take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Pocket. The smartphone has just been announced officially becoming the most basic offering in the company's current portfolio of Android smartphones. It is a handset stripped down of all bells and whistles, which makes it suitable for budget-conscious consumers.

What the Samsung Galaxy Pocket has to offer is an 832MHz single-core processor and a 2.8-inch display with QVGA resolution. On its back we have a really basic fixed focus camera of 2 megapixels, and a 1,200mAh battery resides under its back cover. You also get a 3.6Mbps 3G radio, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, and 3 gigabytes of on-board storage.

All of that is confined inside of a body with a thickness of 12 millimeters. The device itself tips the scale at the respectable 97 grams. In terms of software, the smartphone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread enhanced with goodies like the usual set of Google applications, Samsung's ChatON service, and, of course, the TouchWiz user interface.

The Samsung Galaxy Pocket will be available in the UK later this year, yet we have no word as to whether it will ever come to the U.S. Pricing has not been disclosed, but we doubt that the smartphone will burn a hole through anyone's budget.
