Optus is launching a new pre-paid phone on the 15th of November, the Samsung Galaxy Music. Available for $149 at Dick Smith, Domayne and Optus stores, the phone is available in Blue or White. It’s showing now on the Optus Website but numerous notices in-store showed that retailers were not expecting stock until the 15th of November. Not a bad little phone but certainly not what you’d call top of the line spec wise :

  • 3.0” Capacative Screen 320×240
  • 850Mhz CPU
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB with microSD Card slot expandable to 32GB
  • 3MP Rear Camera
  • ConnectivityWiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth V 3.0
  • A-GPS + GLONASS, Stereo FM Radio wRDS
  • Dual Stereo Speaker
  • 3G NetworkHSDPA 900 / 2100 (7.2 Mbps)
  • 2G NetworkGSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
  • Android 4.0 (ICS)
  • Battery mAH1300 mAH
    • Battery Stand-by TimeUp to 570 hr
    • Battery Talk TimeUp to 9 hr 30 min
  • 110.0×59.0x12.55mm @ 108.8grams

So for $149 you can get this little beauty loaded with a Touchwizified version of Ice Cream Sandwich which isn’t a terrible option considering the plethora of pre-paid phones around still running Gingerbread, however for a little over double you could of course be ordering the Nexus 4 tomorrow starting at $349 for an 8GB version, I know which one I’d be getting.
