It’s been a good week for Android phones down under. Just days after Telstra rolled out the LG Optimus, Optus has added the Samsung Galaxy S to its range.
Optus will sell the Samsung phone from July 1, and will have an exclusive on the phone for the first month. Running Android 2.1 and with the Swype keyboard integrated as standard, the phone will cost $849 outright, or $59 a month on Optus’ “social plan”. As our table of existing Android plans shows, that’s slap-bang in the middle of Optus’ existing price range.
