Following the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Y in 2011, Samsung recently announced the local availability of the Galaxy Y Pro – an entry level touch screen Android Smartphone distinguished specifically by its QWERTY keyboard.
“The broader Galaxy Y is for young, dynamic mobile users on the go who want to stay in touch and be connected,” says Paulo Ferreira, Head of Mobile Products and Business Solutions at Samsung SA. “Featuring all the bells and whistles of an Android-driven smartphone, along with exciting apps, faster downloads and Wi-Fi connectivity – mobile connectivity has never been easier, or more affordable, for a user always on the move.”
The Galaxy Y Pro is differentiated by its QWERTY keyboard as well as enhanced social and professional features. The Galaxy Y Pro Smartphone is optimised for young professionals looking to manage both their work and home lives with ease. Users can stay constantly connected with a Premium Social Hub, which supports a variety of third-party email (including Microsoft Exchange), social network and instant messaging providers.
An optimised, intuitive touch screen interface allows an accessible and intelligent experience, while users are able to work on the go thanks to ThinkFree mobile office, enabling a variety of Microsoft Office documents (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) and Adobe PDF files to be viewed on the handset. Productivity is enhanced thanks to the combined power of touch screen and QWERTY keyboard inputs, enabling smooth navigation with efficient and professional input. WiFi Direct also allows faster device-to-device data transfer rates, allowing content to be shared quickly with other similar-enabled WiFi direct devices, which is much faster than Bluetooth access.
“This is a powerful device that is priced aggressively to accommodate for those who want the power of Android and Google’s Mobile Services on an affordable, yet professionally sleek and feature-rich smartphone,” concludes Ferreira.
The Samsung Galaxy Y Pro is now available through various local retail outlets at an approximate Recommended Retail Price of R1 499.00.
