Samsung announce budget Android device – i5500 Corby


The Samsung i5500 Corby (AKA Galaxy 5) is apparently hitting Italian shores soon but as yet we have no word on whether the device will be heading over here to the UK.

With a Wave of high end Samsung devices (no pun intended!) launching here this month it does make sense for Samsung to also target the lower end too.

With HTC launching the Wildfire in the next week this new Samsung device could maybe be a contender? Sporting Android 2.1 on a 2.8 inch QVGA capacitive screen, 2mp camera, 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS and 3.5mm headset jack the i5500 seems to contain all the essential ingredients.

Word on the street is that it will be retailing in Italy for only 199 Euros. The question being will it be worth spending a little extra and getting the HTC Wildfire?

Lets hope the Samsung i5500 Corby is on its way to the UK.
