Samsung Galaxy Portal does Android on a budget

It's another day, another Android phone – this time from Samsung with its second Android offering the i5700, also known to its mates as the Galaxy Portal.

Specwise its business as usual with a 3.2 megapixel camera, 3.2-inch touchscreen, 3.5mm jack, GPS, Bluetooth and 3G, but it certainly seems this is going to be aimed at a more budget Android market, with just version 1.5 on board, and rather shockingly, no Wifi.

Elsewhere though, it features an augmented reality browser called Layar to allow you to take advantage of the AR content such as the Samsung Football Pub Finder, which helps users find a watering hole playing their beloved teams' match.

You'll get Google services pre-installed, such as Maps, Gmail, Talk and YouTube, and plenty to download as widgets to get one touch access to the likes of Twitter and Facebook from your homepage.

Set to hit shop shelves on Monday, the Galaxy Portal will be available exclusively with T-Mobile for the first month – it'll also have exclusivity over the black handset for the first three months.

Full pricing and tariff details aren't clear, but T-Mobile has said prices would start from £20 a month on a monthly contract.
