Samsung announces tiny, budget-minded Galaxy Pocket

Smartphone owners looking for downgrade in the size department now have their chance with the Galaxy Pocket.

As great as Samsung's extensive line of Galaxy phones is, some of the devices are a bit on the large side, and some others - well, they're a bit expensive.

So it's a welcome sight to see that Samsung is offering cheaper, more pocket-friendly versions of its phones, starting now with the Galaxy Pocket.

Available in the U.K. later this year for an undisclosed sum, the appropriately-named Galaxy Pocket gets its title from its 2.8-inch screen and tiny frame.

Of course, with that size, we shouldn't expect the most powerful of devices. The Galaxy Pocket runs on a 800MHz processor, offers Android 2.3, and comes with 3GB of upgradable storage.

The device should probably remind you of HP's Veer, a similarly diminutive smartphone that, sadly, failed to attract much of an audience (much like, you might say, the rest of HP's webOS devices). Let's just hope Samsung's device fares better. There is clearly a niche for smaller, cheaper devices, after all.
