Earlier today, Engadget managed to get their hands on the Spring release schedule for UK carrier, Three. Along with some exciting, though previously known, products, such as the HTC Flyer, Desire S, ChaCha, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, Xperia Play, and the Blackberry Playbook, we got our first peek at the Samsung Galaxy S II Mini.

While this device is the little brother of the Galaxy S II, the specs on this phone are anything but mini. With a 1.4GHz (potentially dual-core?) processor, 3.7" screen, Gingerbread at launch and HSPA+21 data connectivity, this handset seems to break the stigma that "mini" means "budget".

The lucky chaps on Three should see the Galaxy S II Mini around April, along with the Galaxy Pro, the Desire S, the Xperia Play, and the Xperia Arc. The Galaxy S II will hit shelves there in May, as will the Flyer, and you will have to wait until June to get your hands on the ChaCha and the Wi-Fi only Playbook. All in all, a great spring for our friends across the pond.

Interestingly, some trigger-happy designer at Three deiced that the Nokia X7, which is clearly not running Android, also deserves the familiar little green robot near its specs:
