yeah, see previous thread. only diff is dual core?
might be worth waiting a few weeks then if it's about to come out. also G300 has got to drop, if they don't sell out.

Maybe, but I think the real issue is that the phone only has 512 MB of RAM, which a lot of that already reserved for other things (baseband?). And the GPU is really slow - so a faster CPU is not going to make much difference.

Now if it was the dual SIM version, I would be very tempted...

Inside G330 is MSM8225 (2x Cortex A5 at 1GHz), still no HD video shooting, but better graphic chip Adreno 203 then in G300.

I am waiting something better with HD video shooting. But this is looking good for 100 pounds

yes, please, if it's cheap enough!
(G300 is still best at £100, so G330 at £100 is probably also still best isn't it..)

edit: unless there is something with G330 having less usable RAM than G300 that i don't know about?

i know for ICS you really want 1GB.

they've upped internal flashram to 4gb? slightly useless.

interesting part though is article implies won't be going PAYG until 2013. i.e. it will be contract on TalkTalk. bummer!


edit: surely this is the current competitor/next phone above G300 ?

Galaxy Ace 2.
Dual Core, otherwise pretty similar to G300/G330 no?

nope, it's same price as G330 currently. that's my point. both are around £150. when G330 is available in UK PAYG, it may be less, but that's speculation.

So the Ace 2 is the phone to compete with (next one above G300 currently), weird no one mentioned it here before?

Is Ace 2 that price at anywhere recognisable? oops missed link. That's a dramatic drop from when last I saw it.

Tbh I don't really want to get stuck to a 24 months contract. Payg the way for freedom upgrade every 6 month. Surely the phone(g330) still worth about hundred quid when I flock it in eBay.

sorry i just meant that its not £100 now, because of tax, import costs etc. hopefully it will be, but probably not until i dunno mid next year? they could charge £150-£200 if they released it here now.

probably wont even come to the uk, but if it did we would more than likely get ripped off and pay double (like normal) lol

Smiff2 is absolutely spot on. Mobiles phones has pretty small profit margin. I can tell you that the G330 is selling approx £95 (sealed) with online re-sellers in china atm. If you include import tax + shipping +re-seller profits margin(let's assume about 10% of the total cost landed). You will be looking around £135 online and perhaps £150 retail.
