Coles Samsaung Galaxy Y and Huawei Y201 Telstra Pre Paid

In the latest Coles catalogue starting this Wednesday 11 September for one week, Coles is offering the Samsung Galaxy Y for $59 plus 750 FlyBuys points and the Huawei Ascend Y201 for $39 plus an additional 500 points if you’re a FlyBuys member.

Now whilst these devices aren’t going to offer the latest and greatest specs, they will offer most of the same functions as Android smartphones offered for ten times the price (although, not all of them).

    Y201 works fine but SHOULD NOT have the Telstra Blue Tick. Doesn’t work where my Motorola Defy (older non blue tick version) works!?!?!

    Bought my wife the Huawei Y201. Must say I am surprised by the phone. For an 800MHz Single Core processor, it is actually quite snappy. And it is ample for what her usage. And at $39 (although I bought mine last week for $49), you can’t go wrong. Even if it fails in a year, simply throw it away and buy another one. Question is, should we now classify these phones as “Disposable Smartphone” similar to the disposable cameras that we around not so long ago ?

    The Galaxy Y is such a cute derpy little thing.
    I want one, for no good reason.
