Samsung Galaxy Mini

T-Mobile's got a pretty decent lineup of low-end Android phones available for those of us on a budget, and soon they'll be expanding it even further. The folks over at PCWorld are reporting that the Samsung Galaxy Mini will eventually be making its way to T-Mo here in the U.S. The Galaxy Mini features specs like a 3.2-inch 320x240 display, a 600MHz processor, 150MB of internal memory, and Android 2.2. Additionally, the site says that the T-Mobile Move will be arriving stateside, but there are some conflicting reports as to whether or not that's true. The Move, which is being referred to as the "most affordable Android device," has specs like a 2.8-inch 320x240 display, 600MHz CPU, 2 megapixel camera, 150MB of memory, preinstalled 2GB microSD card, and Froyo. Both handsets are expected to land this later this spring for $50-$75 on contract.

On one other small, Magenta-related note, our friends at TmoNews noted that the HTC Incredible S and Flyer both feature support for T-Mo's AWS bands. That's in no way an indication that T-Mobile is definitely getting the two products, but it certainly makes a launch at some point in the future a possibility.

While I'm sure that most of us would like to be learning more about new handsets bound for T-Mo, like that crazy HTC Pyramid, it's good to see Magenta fleshing out their low-end, too. As for the Incredible S, it would be kind of a surprise to see the new Incredible arrive on T-Mobile since its predecessor was a Verizon exclusive, but stranger things have certainly happened. We'll keep you updated on when, or if, any of these devices launch.
