So this story has gone from a ‘might‘ to a ‘coming soon’ which is good news for peeps after a simple low-end smartphone on Telstra Prepaid. The Galaxy 5 i5503T is expected to hit Telstra on the 16th of October and retail for around $199, which isn’t always the case, just look at the Wildfire.
The Galaxy 5 has a 2.8″ QVGA (why?!) capacitive display, 2MP camera, 600MHz CPU, 3G (850/2100MHz), WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, FM Radio and 90MB of internal memory to install a few apps with. Not too bad given the price, but there will be a lot of competition in this space very soon with a imminent release of the Huawei IDEOS.
Thanks once again to our trust Telstra connect 🙂
