    Samsung on Monday introduced two mid-range smartphones, the Galaxy Mini and the Galaxy Pro. The handsets will run Google's Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system.

    Both will be launched in the UK in April by 3, the mobile operator said in a statement the same day. It did not give details of pricing, but said both phones will be available to buy in-store and online.

    The Galaxy Pro (shown here) combines a 2.8-inch touchscreen display with a Qwerty keyboard beneath it, a design that is less commonly used in current smartphone line-ups.

    When it arrives in April, it will come with the Froyo OS, Android 2.2.1. This will bring the usual array of Google apps, as well as the portable Wi-Fi hotspot functionality that was introduced with Froyo.
