Samsung Galaxy S III mini just 99 cents at AT&T
AT&T has announced on Wednesday that it is selling the Samsung Galaxy S III mini for just 99 cents with a signed two-year pact. The phone, which launched overseas nearly a year ago, is not exactly brimming over with the latest specs. But we suspect that you already figured that out, considering the price.

The Samsung Galaxy S III mini offers a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen with a 480 x 800 resolution (WVGA). That combination produces a pixel density of 233ppi. A dual-core 1GHz processor drives the phone which features 1GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. The latter can be expanded using the 32GB capacity microSD slot. The 5MP rear-facing camera captures video in 720 x 1280 at a rate of 30fps, and the .3MP front-facing snapper lets you take "selfies" and conduct video chats. A 1500mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 4.2 is installed on the unit.

With the Jelly Bean build of Android on the phone, the Samsung Galaxy S III mini will have the smooth responsiveness of Project Butter, information you need when you need it from Google Now, and the time saving abilities of actionable notifications. HSPA and LTE connectivity are both available.

Pre-orders for the device begin tomorrow, September 19th, with the phone expected to be shipped on September 27th.

$0.99 expensive for a mid-range phone sporting 4.2 out of the box. Yep. Expensive.

You're judging if a phone is low end by it's screen size? Good thing you're not a reviewer on phones because you'd be fired right away.

lol this is one of the only things i dislike about android. you anticipate the latest tech phone to come out when it does you're willing to pay $199 on contract for it. But a few months later that same phone is $0.99 smh...

It's not meant to be a flagship at all...

how is that a bad thing about Android? Android is the operating system, not a manufacturer. That would be Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, or others.

because on ANDROID those manufactures discount their phones months down the road its a bad thing because you spend all this money on a phone you like and a few months later the price drops to a penny. this doesn't happen with iphones.

99 cents is good, but its the 2 year contract that makes this deal not worth it.

T-Mobile doesn't throttle. I went through 40GB last month and didn't see speeds under 25mbps at all.
