Earlier rumors suggesting we’d see T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, which is essentially a Galaxy S3 Mini, by the end of this month seem to have been dead on as Magenta has announced the availability of the device as of today. Folks interested in the device can walk into their T-Mobile store and put just $20 down to walk away with the device (after which they’ll be subject to payments of $9 per month over the course of 24 months). You can also buy it outright for $235.
It’s an affordable option that anyone looking to jump into the smartphone arena for the first time should consider. The Galaxy Exhibit isn’t quite as powerful as the Samsung Galaxy S3 it’s positioned next to, but it should be able to get the job done for anyone who isn’t expecting to be able to control the Pentagon from their smartphones.
The Galaxy Exhibit could be considered tiny in this day and age, with a 4-inch WVGA display gracing the front. The device also features a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 5 megapixel camera on the back with a 1 megapixel sensor on the front, Android 4.1 and more. Be sure to take a nice, long look over at T-Mobile’s website before making your ultimate decision.
