Samsung sends word that its diminutive entry-level smartphone, the Galaxy Mini 2, has launched in the UK. The phone's 3.27-inch HVGA screen and 800MHz CPU is certainly a far cry from the specs found in the company's latest flagship. But as we discovered during our hands-on time at MWC, it's a well-built and relatively speedy entry-level phone that feels great in the hand. It's definitely a solid improvement over last year's Galaxy Mini.

A cursory glance over a few online retailers reveals SIM-free prices of around £150, which isn't at all bad for this kind of handset. The Galaxy Mini 2 is also due to appear on-contract from T-Mobile and Orange in the UK.

Pretty sad (for Apple) when a 3.27" Android device is considered mini while a 3.5" iPhone is considered acceptable.

This phone is a POS. Samsung should focus on making phones that are worth buying. They should stop making phones like this freaking mini that only tarnishes their brand.

Kind of expensive compared to US carriers.

I would like to see a 3.7 inch with kick butt specs. I would bet that size device would sell like crazy. I have several phones many have the large size screens, I find myself breaking out my Nexus One just because I like the way it feels in my hand. I also have all the accessories for it but If companies would build another Nexus One with some killer, I mean KILLER specs it would sell like wild fire. Not everyone wants the super size phone.
