O2 first to get Samsung Jet Ultra


O2 has become the first high street retailer to range Samsung’s latest Jet handset, the Jet Ultra Edition.

The phone is available for free on a £25 a month tariff, with the first 10,000 customers receiving a gift exclusive to O2 – The Ultimate Gangster Collection – a set of three gangster DVDs including Scarface, Casino and American Gangster. They come packaged with the Jet Ultra Edition in a limited edition Gangster box.

The Ultimate Gangster Collection offer is supported by a press campaign and up to 20 of O2’s stores will have Gangster news-stands set up outside.

The latest addition to the Jet range now comes with integrated social networking and BBC iPlayer, with a widget available to the user for this service. The handset has also been redesigned and is now black with a silver surround on the front.

As with its predecessor, it features an 800MHz processor, Active Sync to allow for emails to be moved from Outlook Exchange and Google Mail, a 3.1-inch screen, 5-megapixel camera and HSDPA and Wi-Fi capabilities.

Samsung Mobile UK and Ireland vice president Mark Mitchinson said: “The Jet Ultra Edition is a phone with unparalleled functionality and builds on the success of our earlier Jet handset in ters of enabling aspirational and exciting lifestyles. With today’s consumers living increasingly fast-paced lives, we’re proving access to both entertainment and productivity options – all the things consumers love and need for work and play – and at unprecedented speed. I fell confident that O2 will make Jet Ultra Edition an astounding success.”
