This is an Android phone, however if you can cope with the smaller size it can do quite a number of things that you would expect to need a larger device to complete. This is a 112 gram device that slips easily into a pocket or purse. The Samsung Galaxy S III mini is available either on contract or PAYG from the various phone chains or should you prefer unlocked.
