Sammy sometime behaves like a gadget collector. We are not joking, but they love showing off devices in different shapes and sizes often. Now as part to rolling out devices in every possible screen dimension, Samsung has introduced a new rig dubbed as Galaxy Pocket.
It is back to the old school where sets were smaller to fit in your pocket and easy to go through, by holding it in one hand. Galaxy Pocket stands out from other Samsung crowd of Android smart phones and their larger displays with its tiny 2.8 inch display of 240×320 resolution. The rig is small in its set of features too, but it is extra-portable and fits in the pocket with its size and form factor.
Running on a comparatively older version of Android – Gingerbread – Galaxy Pocket comes with Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI and is powered by an 832 MHz processor. Its camera packs a 2 megapixel sensor, and the rig has an internal storage of 3 GB, which can be expanded through microSD slots.
On the connectivity front, this Lilliputian offers Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. It also packs an accelerometer, a GPS and a digital compass.
The rig, in the beginning, will target UK market where it will be launched somewhere this year itself. It is sure that Sammy is looking for the low-price segment of the market. We were not able to collect any official response regarding a possible North American launch.
Small is beautiful, but is that so always? Let us know in your comments.
