O2 gets exclusive on Samsung Jet Ultra Edition touchphone

Gangster giveaway to promote iPlayer handset

Boost IT visibility and business value

O2 has won the exclusive rights to sell Samsung's BBC iPlayer-enabled Jet Ultra Edition touchscreen handset.

The Jet Ultra Edition - aka the GT-S8000 - is a dual-band 3G, quad-band GSM Edge phone with a 3.1in, 800 x 480 OLED display, 5Mp camera, Wi-Fi and TV output.

Majoring on video playback, the handset supports MPEG 4, H.263, H.264, WMV, DivX and XviD codecs.

The Jet Ultra Edition runs its own OS on top of an 800MHz processor, and uses Samsung's TouchWiz UI.

O2 said it will offer the handset for free if you sign up for a £20-a-month airtime package on an 18-month contract. If you only want to spend £15 a month, the handset will cost you £50.

Sign up for two years, and O2 will knock a fiver off the monthly rate.

Finally, we don't know why, but O2 considers a set of gangster DVDs a fine accompaniment to the Samsung phone, and the first 10,000 buyers will be given free copies of American Gangster, Casino and Scarface.

Form an orderly queue, please. ®
