Samsung Galaxy with android OS now available through Cellcom

August 9, 2009

cellcom      Cellcom is introducing today the first Android based device in Israel, the Samsung Galaxy.Galaxy

According to reviews from around the globe the Galaxy is an android based phone better fitted for mainstream users and not just technophiles (Like me 🙂 ).

The Samsung Galaxy (i7500) is featuring a 3.2 inch AMOLED touchscreen display, and 5-megapixel camera (with LED flash).

With a thickness of just 11.9 millimeters, the Galaxy handset is actually slimmer than both the HTC Magic and the Apple iPhone 3G.

 The handset will be available for eager shoppers for 94.50 ILS per month on a 36 months contract with a monthly rebate cutting the price to 10 ILS per month for heavy users with a 399 ILS monthly bill. (A price much too expensive for yours truly..)

In order to promote the new device, Celcom has launched a contest urging people to photograph a unique object they own and explain why it is so unique in order to win and trade that object for a brand new Galaxy Phone.

10 of the most unique objects will be traded for 10 Samsung Galaxy handsets.

Update: Cellcom has launched a commercial for the new Andriod device saying : “There’s nothing like the first time excitement” implying on being the first to launch the Android OS in Israel.

enjoy..
