Phones 4u, the UK retailer, hopes to capitalize on potential Samsung Galaxy Note 3 buyers who want something a little unique by being the exclusive source for a pink version of the large, stylus-equipped smartphone. The Galaxy Note 3 is also available in black and white. Phones 4u has already started selling the Galaxy Note 3 online, including the pink version, and the device will be available in retail locations starting on Friday. In addition to the exclusive color option, Phones 4u is throwing in some freebies for buyers including a £120 ($193 USD) wireless speaker, three months of 4u Wi-Fi and either Sky Sports Mobile or Spotify Premium if the buyer opts for a Vodafone 4G plan.
It looks like consumers in Taiwan interested in grabbing a pink HTC Butterfly will get that opportunity according to Taiwanese website ePrice. Their site is reporting today that HTC is making a pink cherry powder colored HTC Butterfly available on April 30th. According to the site, pre-orders are now being accepted at both Yahoo! and PCHome. The pink version will be sold for NT$21,900 ($731 USD). This is slightly less than the red and white versions that have been released.
Last month we reported on rumors that HTC is working on a successor to the HTC Butterfly. The appearance of additional colors on the market is typically a sign that a manufacturer is ready to move on to their next version of a device and are content to drive sales of their previous generation device with new versions, like different colors.
Yesterday in a report on global smartphone sales during the Christmas holiday period, we learned that one of the top three smartphones given as a gift was the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. We have another holiday coming up in less than a month that usually involves some gift-giving, Valentine’s Day. Verizon may be hoping to capitalize on the holiday by making the Motorola DROID RAZR M available in pink. The new color should be available online and in stores starting January 24th.
As we reported earlier, an upgraded version of the Sony Xperia S appears to be on the way. Sources indicate the device, an LT26ii listed as a Sony Xperia SL, will run on an overclocked 1.7GHz Snapdragon S3 chip. The image that has surfaced shows the device in pink and in blue/violet. This is the second pink Xperia that has been spotted this week. It is not clear whether other colors will be available and still no word on availability of the device.

Samsung has always been one to sport a device in as many colors as possible. The Galaxy S III will start off in White and Pebble Blue as you know and we can only assume in other colors down the road. This time however it’s regarding the “berry pink” version of the Galaxy Note that was launched in Korea early in April. Thought to only be seen in Korea the pink device is now making its way to the United Kingdom.
The folks at Carphone Warehouse revealed that it will launch the pink version of the device starting next month and they’ve gone as far as to create a pre-registration page. This page will allow potential buyers to sign up for more information. However as it’s the Galaxy Note just in a pink variety there isn’t much you wouldn’t already be able to find out other places.
So if you live in the UK and were really hoping to snag this giant device in pink your chance is coming up. While I personally wouldn’t get one in pink I’m sure someone will. Hit the source to sign up.
Just last month, right before Valentines day, we got wind of a ‘Berry Pink’ colored Samsung Galaxy Note. At that time we were unsure whether or not the device would actually make it to markets, but given that we have already seen the Galaxy S II receive the feminine treatment, it wasn’t completely out of the question. While visiting the Samsung booth at CeBIT this year, the folks at Engadget were exposed to a pink Galaxy Note prototype confirming the device was in fact going to be a reality.
As large as the Note is, it’s going to be hard enough to get women interested in the device, but adding the cheery pink hue as an option will surely draw some female attention. It is expected to land in Germany sometime in the next couple of months, but there is no word of a stateside release as of yet.
Ladies, would a pink Note be just what you need to call the huge smartphone your own? Let us know in the comments below.
Hey ladies! Have I got something cool for you to check out today… and yes it’s pink. Samsung recently teamed up with Bobbi Brown ( the makeup manufacturer, not the music artist. I wouldn’t submit you to any of his shenanigans) and released a pink version of the Galaxy S II. Not only do you get the most popular and best selling Android device ever in pink, you also get a small set of Bobbi Brown makeup and key ring to go along with it. By the looks of the pictures, the phone comes packaged in a sexy black box with a mirror on the lid, and you will also get a few eye shadow colors and a pink lip gloss, you know you love lip gloss!
Anyway, Sammy is doing this collaboration in celebration of selling over 5 million Galaxy S II’s in the Korean markets. That being said I must mention that this limited edition model is only available in Korea at this time and there is no word on its availability elsewhere. Sorry if I got your hopes up but if it’s just the pink SGSII you’re after, you can get that in the UK, Sweden and in Taiwan currently. For those who live in Korea and want the Bobbi Brown version, starting today you can get this device at Samsung’s “How To Live Smart” side project through the link below. Anyone getting one, or wish they could get one? Let us know in the comments.
The majority of tech enthusiasts view Samsung’s hotly anticipated Galaxy Note as a device aimed at the male market, primarily down to its huge 5.3″ screen. That view could be set to change as the emperor just got some new clothes, in ‘Berry Pink’ none-the-less! Initially announced in Black and White variations, Samsung expects to add the pink model to their portfolio some time in Q1 this year.
Just in case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few months, the Galaxy Note features a 5.3″, 1280 x 800, Super AMOLED HD display, 1.4 Ghz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8mp camera with 1080p video capture and a whopping 2500 mAh battery.
With only four more days to go until Valetine’s Day, maybe it’s time to get that pre-order in!

Last November, Samsung announced that they would be making a pink version of the widely popular Galaxy S II, and since then it has landed in South Korea, Sweden, and most recently Taiwan. Well, apparently those three countries aren’t the only countries that look pretty in pink as Sammy just announced the flesh-toned phone will be heading to the UK as well, and just in time for Valentines day.
As we mentioned before, the specs of the device will remain the same, and according to Phones 4 U, should be available on February 13th. The phone will run a reasonably priced £21.50 a month on a two-year contract. For those who want a contract-free pink SGSII, online retailer Very will sell you one for £499.99 so they must be pretty proud of this phone to be selling it at that price! Currently Very lists the device as available, but in reality they are awaiting shipment and the phone should arrive within the next week.
This would most definitely make for a great Valentines day gift, or would be good for any dudes out there who think pink is punk. Anyone want one?
Happy New Year folks!!! What better way to ring in the new year than by seeing the Samsung Galaxy S II receive a pink facelift for the Taiwanese markets today? Samsung has decided to aim this pink variation of the popular phone for the female demographic. Yes, that same 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP and delectable Android 2.3 goodness is now available in pink skin for your sister, girlfriend, wife, etc.
Exciting news indeed. The pink Galaxy S II is in stores now and will sell for for TW$ 21,900 (US$724). Be sure to thank us in the Comments section if any of you end up scoring a Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free card by buying the cool phone for the women in your lives.
