Sydney, Australia (PressExposure) March 17, 2009 -- Five months after the Beijing 2008 Olympics, SAMSUNG has further congratulated Australia's 26 gold medalists with the first of the new and exclusive SAMSUNG F480 gold handsets to arrive in the country. As the official wireless partner of the Games, SAMSUNG launched the F480, as the 2008 Olympic handset and instantly became one of the best selling mobile phones worldwide.
"SAMSUNG provided U900 handsets to the entire Australian and Oceanic Olympic team to help them stay connected with family and friends whilst in Beijing, but the arrival of our gold coloured F480 handsets gave us the perfect opportunity to re-visit Olympic glory and extend our Olympic spirit to the Australian gold medalists." said Mr KY Choi, Managing Director, SAMSUNG Australia.
The newest addition to SAMSUNG's touch phone range in Australia, the ultra-slim, credit card size F480 is as efficient and hard-working as the athletes. The expandable 8GB of memory can store favourite songs and videos as well as pictures taken on the 5 Megapixel camera.
