Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini finally official.

   This lovely little device, ladies and gentlemen, is the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. It became officially official in Germany today after tonnes and tonnes of leaks in the past week. Which, incidentally  turned out to be totally correct!

   Unfortunately this device will leave many people hugely disappointed, because this is not the Galaxy S3 in a smaller shell. Instead, we have a toned down version of the original Galaxy S3.

   It turns out yesterday's rumours were pretty spot on; there's a 4" 480 x 800 pixel screen,  Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 1GHz dual-core processor, a slightly underwhelming 5-megapixel main camera with autofocus and an LED flash. There's also a front-facing VGA camera, NFC, Wifi, 8 or 16GB's of storage and a MicroSD card slot! All of this is powered by a 1,500 mAh battery, which should get you through the day!

   There's no word on pricing yet, although we expect it'll set you back somewhere in region of £250! What do you think about it? Is it slightly disappointing? Let us know in the comments below!
