Vodafone UK has updated its "coming soon" page with details of the Samsung Galaxy Y, a new budget device that was unveiled as part of Sammy's shake-up of its Android device line-up a few weeks ago. The Galaxy Y seems to be an updated version of the Galaxy Mini, which we reviewed earlier in the year. Packed into its tiny 3-inch chassis is an 823MHz CPU, which runs Android 2.3 and TouchWiz 4.0. Unfortunately the Galaxy Y's screen hasn't received much of an upgrade from the Galaxy Mini -- according to the official spec list, it still runs at an eye-punishing QVGA (240x320) resolution
No word on pricing or availability yet, but you can probably expect this one to be free on most contracts, and reasonably cheap on its own.

3 inch screen? Seriously?! That's way too small for a touchscreen! I think typing on this thing will be a nightmare! Your thumb will pretty much cover 1/4 of the screen. Maybe it'll be a good device for kids, but still...
"Y" would anybody get this phone....Seriously...
