Glenda gets flexible with 3 and the Samsung Galaxy S

3, Ireland’s largest high speed network, has launched new ‘Flex’ plans for the Samsung Galaxy S. The new customer focused price plans are based on the concept of total flexibility for 3 subscribers on Billpay.

Glamorous Xpose star Glenda Gilson was on hand with Sarah Kavanagh and Ruth Griffin to launch the Samsung Galaxy S on the new Flex Smartphone plans. The new plans are revolutionary, delivering better value for money to customers by automatically adapting to their individual mobile usage style, thus ensuring that all available allowances are used up, before the customer incurs any further charges.

The Samsung Galaxy S is the first smart phone to feature a 4 inch capacitive Super AMOLED display. This amazing new screen technology, designed and built by Samsung, will be available exclusively on Samsung mobiles for up to 12 months and allows for more vivid colour and contrast than any other screen type.

Users can enjoy an amazing touch experience on the eye popping screen with access to an application store with over 70 thousand applications. As the screen uses 20% less battery power you can spend even longer browsing the internet or exploring all of those applications.

The Android powered handset boasts an ultra thin screen with no space between the glass and the touch sensors. This means that you can use the screen with only the smallest touch of your finger.

Commenting on the launch Eoin MacManus, 3 Ireland said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of the new Flex price plans for the Samsung Galaxy S. This handset is the latest  addition to our expanding range of Smartphones  and when combined with the new Flex price plans, 3 customers have the best and most competitively priced mobile package in the market place.”

In addition to this new flexible approach to usage, customers signing up to the Smartphone focused ‘Flex’ plans are entitled to receive one free monthly add-on from 1st September 2010 until 30th June 2011, and can choose from any of the following:

  • Unlimited Landline Calls (to all ROI Mobiles or Landlines)
