PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While US Android users are all full of glee that they're finally getting the Samsung Galaxy S II in the United States, a far more significant Android smartphone is being developed... In China. It's faster than any other smartphone, has a beautiful and fluid user interface, top-notch hardware quality, a dual-partition setup so you can keep using the phone while it updates... And will sell for a mere $310, no contract or whatever other nonsense. Hello Xiaomi Phone.

The point of this article is that budget-oriented consumers no longer have to settle for last year's product - they can get the latest and greatest today.

It’s certainly getting that way, my mother just got a Samsung Galaxy Ace on a 2 year contract (we may not approve of such lengths…) but she doesnt upgrade often and wanted a cheap tarrif. The phone was free and the monthly cost is £10 for a decent amount of calls and data. So £240 for phone + 2 years of use. Seems reasonable to me.
