Samsung Galaxy Young is a cheap way to bag Jelly Bean

BARCELONA, Spain--They say youth is wasted on the young, but at least with the Samsung Galaxy Young you won't waste your youth with out-of-date software. The Young is loaded with Jelly Bean despite its budget price.

The Galaxy Young is joined by the Samsung Galaxy Fame, and they're nearly identical in looks and specs. Both phones have Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean software on board, making them an affordable option for what is almost the very latest version of Android software.

The Young is a single-core phone with a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. The processor should be powerful enough to deal with the basics, although the demo model I tried crashed when I tried to insert a smiley into a text message -- not exactly a taxing task.
