Samsung Galaxy Y Netphone Edition

Meet the Samsung Galaxy Y: Smart Netphone Edition, the second phone to be introduced under Smart’s netphone line. We got our hands on the ZTE Blade aka Smart Netphone 701 a few weeks back and we loved the SmartNET system and the Samsung Galaxy Y Netphone Edition looks to continue that trend. BTW The Y means Young so the device’s full name is actually the Samsung Galaxy Young. =)

The Samsung Galaxy Y: Smart Netphone Edition is priced as follows (As of 102111):

  • FREE @ Data Lite Plan 500
  • FREE @ All-in Plan 800
  • Prepaid Kit: PHP 5,990
