Mobilicity puts the smart money on Samsung Galaxy Mini Android smartphone

Canada's smart mobile carrier brings acclaimed Galaxy tradition to students and other value-conscious mobile customers looking to tap into unlimited data usage

TORONTO, Sept. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - Mobilicity today announced the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Mini, bringing Samsung Galaxy's acclaimed tradition of providing a superior Android smartphone experience to value-conscious Canadians.

Exclusive to Mobilicity in its markets, the Galaxy Mini packs a lot of punch into its sleek, compact form - and priced at only $169.99, it is available for a lot less than consumers might expect to pay for an Android device with the same level of features and functionality.

Ideal for students and other budget-minded mobile users looking for a reliable yet affordable smartphone to leverage Mobilicity's unlimited data offering, the Galaxy Mini is powered by Android 2.2 Froyo operating system (upgradable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread).

The new device features a user-friendly 3.14-inch touch screen and handy built-in tools that make for enjoyable and productive usage. Quicktype by Swype, for example, provides users with the fastest way to input text onto a touch-screen device, while the intuitive interface TouchWiz allows users to customize their home screen with widgets.

Galaxy Mini owners will also appreciate being able to create their own mobile hotspots by turning the device into a wireless access point connecting other Wi-Fi devices. Social networking enthusiasts will like the Galaxy Mini's 3-megapixel camera, which makes it easy to upload photographs and video directly to Facebook, Twitter or online photos albums.

Today's announcement further demonstrates Mobilicity's commitment to providing Canadian mobile consumers with unrivalled value and a quality wireless experience.

Availability
The Samsung Galaxy Mini is available at Mobilicity stores across Canada and at mobilicity.ca.
