We won't lie - it's a slow news day in the world of Android. And with all the bad press Samsung's been getting today over an alleged filing of a class-action suit regarding the Froyo update on US Galaxy S phones, we're going to stay on the lighter side of things (for now).


Meet the Samsung Galaxy Mini. Isn't it adorable? Unfortunately, its diminutive size comes with an equally diminutive feature list:

  • 240x320 screen (presumably less than or about 3" in size)
  • Android 2.2.1
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • Device measures 4.3" x 2.4" approximately
  • microSD slot
  • TouchWiz UI

I can't imagine there's a Hummingbird buzzing inside this little guy, so it'll be interesting to see if the TouchWiz UI overlay makes the phone unbearably slow. But it does have one major advantage over Samsung's Galaxy S phones - it comes with Froyo! Samsung must have overcome a lot of unique engineering challenges to make that happen (that was sarcasm, if you didn't catch it).

The Mini will debut at the Mobile World Congress next month in Spain.

      I can't believe the official 2.2 update still isn't out yet. This is why I traded in my Epic for an Evo. I don't think I will ever go with samsung again.

    the only way samsung can save face at this point is to jump straight to 2.3. glad I ditched the vibrant for a nexus s. 2.3 still wasn't going to make it have a flash.
    I like the look of the mini, but samsung's definitely in the doghouse.

    Samsung sure did suck nails on this one. BIG TIME!!! Too bad I just upgraded on AT&T. I'll have to choose another Android phone in 2 years. So long Samsung.
