Samsung launches new Android-based smartphone

South Korean manufacturer Samsung has just come out with another smartphone based on Google's increasingly popular Android platform. The new mobile is called the Galaxy Portal and sports a range of software from both Google and Samsung, some of which is fairly unique.

The Galaxy Portal will have access to all of the standard Google services that are included with Android, including GMail and YouTube, along with social networking support for both Facebook and Myspace.

One particularly chap-friendly feature is the Samsung Football Pub Finder, which lets you know which one of your locals has live sport showing.

On the technical side of things, the Galaxy Portal has a 3.2-inch touchscreen as well as a 3.2 megapixel camera. Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity is also included, along with standards such as Bluetooth.

T-Mobile has exclusive rights to sell the phone in the UK market for the first three months of its availability, with other providers expected to dive in after this initial period.
