Samsung Jet becomes the must have touchscreen smartphone for those who want more of everything, right now

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today unveiled the latest in mobile handset innovation, Samsung Jet, at a series of global launch events in London, Dubai and Singapore. Samsung Jet offers the very best in speed, power, and dominant performance and will be at the subject of Samsung's latest advertising campaign ‘Impatience is a Virtue'.

Samsung Jet is not simply another full touch mobile phone; it is the must have product for those who live fast paced lives and want to pack more of everything in their day. Samsung Jet epitomises speed, quality and choice with vivid display and a super fast processor which makes Jet the fastest full touch handset on the market today. Samsung Jet also supports the latest smartphone features which include multi-task manager and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, bringing user-friendly menu navigations in a sleek and compact design.

The Samsung Jet will be supported by a £5million advertising campaign ‘Impatience is a Virtue'. The campaign will run during the months of July and August and will challenge the assumption that impatience is bad, and look to emphasise how consumers increasingly want more of everything in their day-to-day life – and how the new Samsung Jet can provide this.

Samsung Jet boasts world firsts in both display technology and speed of performance. Its pioneering 16M WVGA AMOLED display (3.1”) offers the most vivid and colorful full touch mobile experience available; the WVGA AMOLED screen provides a resolution that is four times higher than a WQVGA screen. Its 800MHz application processor delivers breathtaking speed and stunning performance, making Jet the fastest full touch handset on the market today.

With its eye-catching brilliant screen, Samsung's latest TouchWiz 2.0 user interface gives an unrivalled user experience and includes iconic new features such as motion UI, smart unlock, customisable widget screen, which are all perfect for managing your life at work and at play; giving you what you want, faster than ever before..

Samsung's Dolfin Internet browser is designed to let users surf the net and access popular websites, especially social networking sites, with ease and speed. The browser enhances the mobile internet experience by allowing users to view up to five web pages simultaneously and bookmark their favourite websites as widgets on the phone's homepage. A built in ad-blocker, multiple downloading and background downloading feature, and multi-purpose address field, further enhance the experience while Dolfin's unique one finger zoom enables users to zoom in and out of web pages using only one hand.

Mark Mitchinson, Vice President Samsung Mobile UK & Ireland, explained, “Samsung Jet is about enabling aspirational and exciting lifestyles and setting people free – with viewing, sharing content, internet browsing, films and photos – all at unprecedented speeds for today's impatient consumers, Our ‘Impatience is a Virtue' media campaign illustrates our understanding of the wants and needs of today's fast paced consumers, and I believe once you use the new Jet phone you'll understand the unrivalled mobile experience we have created for them.  .”

Unlike many smartphones that sacrifice features for form factor, Samsung Jet packs all of these into a sleek body and super cool frame. Samsung Jet also boasts a host of multimedia features including a 5 mega-pixel camera, built-in GPS, DNSe & SRS Sound Effect technology for superior sound quality, and DivX and XviD video support for hassel-free video downloading and viewing.
Samsung Jet launches today at ‘Samsung Mobile UNPACKED' events in London, Dubai and Singapore. Featuring the latest in live technologies and entertainment, the events will provide an exciting hands-on experience with the new handset. The events will also mark the culmination of a global teaser campaign, where one lucky winner from each country will unpack a Samsung Jet ‘live' for the first time.
