Samsung Galaxy S II now available from Vodafone

You can now get your hands on an Android 2.3-packing Samsung Galaxy S II from Vodafone, both online and in store. And you can get the phone for free if you sign up to a £40 per month 24-month price plan.

For those who have been exclusively hanging out in caves, with no access to the outside world, the Samsung Galaxy S II features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and with a waistline of only 8.49mm, is one of the thinnest handsets we've ever come across on Pocket-lint.

It's also an Android handset that's even turned the heads of some of the so-called "Apple fanboys" in the Pocket-lint offices. We love it.

As well as the £40pm deal (which includes 900 minutes of talk time and 750MB of data), Vodafone is also offering the device on a series of other price plans, including 18- and 12-month contracts. Plus, there are discounts available when order online. More details can be found out at shop.vodafone.co.uk.
