Samsung Galaxy Y launches on Vodafone

October 12th, 2011

Samsung Galaxy YSamsung‘s youthful Galaxy smartphone, officially known as the Galaxy Y, has landed in Blighty courtesy of Vodafone.

Billed by Samsung as an affordable smartphone, the iPhone-styled Galaxy Y packs a reasonable 832MHz processor, and comes with latest version of Android onboard. It may be “cheap”, but adopters of the Galaxy Y will also be greeted by a decent 3-inch capacitive touchscreen, skinned in Sammy’ TouchWiz UI. Youngsters will be pleased to hear this offers one-touch access to Facebook and Twitter, alongside all of the usual pre-loaded goods.

Other features include a 2 megapixel rear-facing camera, HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, to 32GB of expandable memory, and Swype.

“Even if you’ve never used a smartphone before, you’ll find using the Samsung GALAXY Y is a breeze – whether you’re calling your mum, texting a mate or updating Facebook” Vodafone explains.

Over at Vodafone, the Samsung Galaxy Y is available for free on a 24 month £10.50 tariff, although this’ll get you a puny 100 minutes, 500 texts and no mobile data. To get a reasonable about of data you’ll have to bump this up to £26 each month, equipping the phone with 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data.

Head over to Vodafone to see its full range of tariffs.
