      Samsung Galaxy S Advance - Sky Go?

      Hello,

      I am looking to purchase a 'Samsung Galaxy S Advance', which is due for release on Mon. But i wanted to know if Sky Go is available on this mobile or if and when it will? Cos if it isn't then i will look to purchase a 'Samsung Galaxy S II' instead.

      Thanks

      Do you know which OS is on the new phone?

      Whilst the S II does support Sky Go, I would suspect that it may not be available for the S Advance.

      I suspect that the best way to confirm this would be to visit the shop and ask someone to try it there and then.

      The OS on the phone is Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

      Yeah i may have to ask someone in the store.

      Thanks for your help.

      There is a chance that it may work. My Samsung S ii currently has Gingerbread v2.3.5

      Whether it works or not is device specific rather than OS.

      In that case i guess i will go for the S II.
      I did want the Sony Xperia P, but since that isn't on the Sky Go list, will miss out on that.
