Samsung Galaxy Y now available through Three

The Samsung Galaxy Y, an Android smartphone specifically designed for da yoof (well, the "Y" does stand for "Young"), is now available from Three, with pricing to appeal most to its target market.

On pay-as-you-go, the Galaxy Y costs £79.99. Then you can add on 30-day payment plans, All in One 15 and All in One 25. The former offers 300 any-network minutes, 3,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data for £15, the latter ups the minutes to 500 for £25.

The phone itself, as we revealed when we went hands-on with it during IFA last year, comes with Android 2.3, has a 3-inch QVGA (320x240) TFT LCD touchscreen, an 832Mhz processor, and a 2-megapixel camera. On board there's Samsung's Social Hub and the TouchWiz UI.

"The Samsung Galaxy Y is a great smartphone for people who want quality and style at an affordable price," said Three's head of handsets, Sylvia Chind. "The Pay As You Go plans come with all-you-can-eat data so customers are free to enjoy everything the phone has to offer without ever having to worry about how much they are using."
