The Samsung Galaxy Fit isn't as good-looking as its name implies, but it's cute enough considering it's likely to be cheap as chips when it lands in March.

The chrome chin isn't our favourite facial feature, but the round case feels comfy and the textured back could come in handy if you're prone to dropping your phone.

The Fit has a 3.3-inch, 240x320-pixel display, and although it's not the sharpest screen, it's still very usable. Text doesn't look as sharp in the Web browser as it would on a higher-resolution screen, but at least it's easy and fast to zoom in with a pinch of your fingers.

The Fit sports Android 2.2 Froyo, which means the phone is loaded with Google goodness, such as Google Maps and Gmail, for example. Samsung has also dusted the Fit with its own app choices, including the excellent Swype keyboard. 

The Fit's brain is a 600MHz processor, which puts it in the dumb class compared to the rest of Samsung's recently launched smart-phone stable. But in person the Fit didn't have any trouble opening apps, and menu and transitions still felt smooth and responsive.

And the Fit is no dummy when it comes to keeping connected. It supports the latest 802.11n Wi-Fi, and it has 7.2Mbps HSDPA for fast downloads over 3G. 

If you've got champagne dreams but a beer budget, the Fit could help you wedge a smart phone into your pocket. To see more of the Fit, click our hands-on photo gallery above.
