The Samsung Galaxy S2 isn't out yet, but it's already being shrunk down for a miniature version, with the eminently logical name of the Galaxy S2 Mini. That's according to leaked details from operator Three's roadmap, which give specs and a date for the device.

Described as 'High End' in the specs, published by Engadget, the phone is expected to go on sale in April. It will run the latest Android Gingerbread software, with a capacitive 3.7-inch, 800x480-pixel touchscreen, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 640x480-resolution front camera for video calls.

The device will pack a speedy 1.4GHz processor and offer HSDPA for fast Internet on the go. This all compares to the 4.3-inch screen and dual-core processor nestling in the full-sized Galaxy S2, which last thing we heard was due to go on sale at the end of March.

Following it up so soon with a Mini model might seem like a strange decision on Samsung's part, but hey, small-handed people can be impatient, right?

The Galaxy S2 Mini isn't the only device featuring on Three's roadmap, of course. Many we know about, but the other one that made us jump out of our seat was the Nokia X7, which is listed on the document with a June release.

We wrote about the X7 back in December, after photos appeared online of the device. Now Three has specced it out: the device will have a 4-inch nHD OLED screen, an 8-megapixel camera, HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity, 16GB of memory, HD video capabilities and a TV-out port. No, it won't run Windows Phone 7 -- it's a Symbian smart phone.

The leaked roadmap also promises a May debut for the HTC Flyer tablet, and a June on-sale date for the Wi-Fi-only BlackBerry PlayBook.
