T-Mobile on Tuesday announced two new entry-level smartphones from Mobile World Congress that will become available later this year. The Samsung Galaxy Mini will serve as an inexpensive smaller alternative to the Galaxy S 4G, featuring a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, a 600MHz processor, 150MB of internal storage, microSDHC support and the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system. Featuring similar specs in an even more compact case, the T-Mobile Move will sport Android 2.2 along with a tiny 2.8-inch 320 x 240-pixel display, a 2-megapixel camera, 150MB of internal storage and microSDHC support. While firm release dates for these budget Android phones have not yet been announced, T-Mobile did confirm that the devices will launch this spring and will each cost between $50 and $75 on contract.
