The UK retailer the, Carphone Warehouse, is getting read to kick off its most recent “Smart Deal” by giving customers a chance to pick up two Android devices for cheap. You’ll be able to get both an entry-level Android phone and entry-level tablet for only £15.50 per month. Pretty amazing, right? This isn’t a a permanent deal though. It only runs from today until next Thursday which lands on August 3rd. That said, if you pick the the deal for £15.50 per month on Orange or T-Mobile UK, you’ll be able to get both a Samsung Galaxy I and a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 in the choices of white or silver. Carphone Warehouse has described the deal as a “tethering plan,” which means that you’ll get the Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab 2 with an option to tether it through the Galaxy Y phone.
On T-Mobile with the £15.50 per month, that will get you 50 minutes of talk time, 250 text messages and 750MB of data, while Orange only offers 100 minutes of talk time, unlimited texts and a scarce amount of data set at 100MB. It’s not a huge allowance, but a very decent value considering you’re getting both a free phone and a pretty sexy tablet. One thing I did notice is that at £15.50 on the required 24 month contract, you really will end up paying a whole lot more for both devices instead of just paying up front. On top of that, you really don’t get a whole lot of data, so as a personal opinion, this is a terrible deal and savings plan. You’d get much more of a deal buy paying full price and then paying for a regular contract. Here’s all the details you need to know about the Galaxy Y Phone and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2:
The compact and neat Samsung Galaxy Y is a full-featured smartphone with a sharp 3” touchscreen display and a 2MP camera. The Samsung Galaxy Y’s Social Hub lets you access all your social networks, instant messengers and emails together in a single place, making sure you can keep an eye on your updates all at once.
Weighing just 345g and with a screen measuring just 7 inches, the Wi-Fi Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is a perfectly portable tablet, great for watching your favourite films, catching up with friends on Skype, social networking, web browsing and playing your favorite games.
