Samsung announce the Galaxy Core Advance

Samsung seem determined to make a Galaxy device for everyone, a perfectly good business model, but in the process of doing so seem to come up with some very strange names – the Core Advance? Is it a core phone or an advanced phone? Anyway strange names aside the newly announced model is aimed at the lower end of the market but giving people a larger screen to play with, a 4.7″ WVGA TFT panel to be precise.
