Samsung Galaxy Express on AT&T available November 16th for $99

Yes, you’re reading that title correctly. Samsung is releasing yet another device rocking the ‘Galaxy’ tag. I have nothing against Samsung as a Samsung device is my daily driver, but really? Why not just call it the Mini-Mini? Although not too much of a surprise seeing as we caught wind of this device back in September, it just seems like we’ve been bombarded with Galaxy titles this fall. This device at least makes a little sense as it fills the entry-level, first-time smartphone buyer segment. Samsung now seems to have a well-rounded portfolio as it were. Strike while the iron’s hot, as they say. The Galaxy Express will have a 4.5-inch screen backed by a 1GHz dual-core processor and a 2000 mAh battery powering Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. A 5MP camera and the ability to run on AT&T’s LTE network will round out the package. I realize this is for first-time buyers and $99 seems a little high these days on contract, as there are certainly other deals to be had out there.

Born in Tennessee yet raised in Florida, Sean is an analyst now living back in Tennessee. His love for gadgets and electronics began in the early 90’s when he received a Sony Walkman for Christmas. At the time, he felt the cassette tape playing, Mega-Bass wielding, three-band equalizer piece of electronics was as good as it'll ever get. There was also the original Nintendo which consumed countless hours of his youth, followed by every follow-up version, a Sega Genesis, PlayStations, and Xboxes. He was a little late to the smartphone party however, not being exposed to one until running a jail-broken, 2nd Gen iPhone on T-Mobile’s network. His phone of choice now is the Galaxy Nexus. He spends most of his free time with his wife and two daughters.

    I don’t understand this phone. When you can get a HTC One X for $99 or sometimes less, this phone makes no sense. Plus if I were a betting man, I would put serious cash on this phone never seeing an update.

    Edit: plus it’s a hideous phone.
