Samsung Galaxy Pro launches

Not content with launching four in January and the Galaxy S 2 in Februa, Samsung has managed to squeeze out another Galaxy phone in March. This time the Samsung Galaxy Pro, which will soon be heading to the Three network.

The Pro is, as you might have guessed from the name, a business-friendly smartphone, offering up a fixed QWERTY keyboard that immediately pitches it against the BlackBerry range. Of course, this doesn't have the same operating system, with the Pro offering Android 2.2.1 (Froyo). Not great in the Android 2.3 Gingerbread world. But there's always the hope it will be upgraded and it does give you the bulk of desirable Android features (including Flash and the option to use as a Wi-Fi hotspot), as well as access to pretty much all of the apps.

Aside from the OS, the Samsung Galaxy Pro has a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen, an 800MHz processor, a 2GB microSD card to bump up the storage (expandable to 32GB) and the Samsung Hub social networking portal pre-installed. Three is the first network to lay claim to it, April is the tentative release date.

Also confirmed for Three for roughly the same time is the Samsung Galaxy Mini. We saw this back in January, an Android 2.2 smartphone with a 3.14-inch, 320x240 QVGA, TFT-LCD display, 600MHz processor, 3-megapixel camera and 2GB of storage (with a microSD slot for more). Like the Pro, no price given as yet for this particular Galaxy.
