Mobile messaging, Microsoft Office and entertainment features all-in-one on the Telstra Next G™ network

Sydney, February 3, 2010 – Bringing you a complete email solution in a mobile device, Samsung Electronics Australia has launched the Samsung OMNIAPro, exclusively available now on Telstra’s Next G™ Network. Running the new Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, the Samsung OMNIAPro is packed with benefits to help make both your professional and personal life easier and more productive.

For busy mobile professionals, the Samsung OMNIAPro is an ideal solution to help you stay connected wherever you are. Boasting a QWERTY keypad for easier messaging and push email, you can receive email in real time and stay in touch on the go.

“The Samsung OMNIAPro is one of Samsung’s most multi-functional smartphones, being as personal as it is practical. It addresses our everyday need to stay in touch on the go with high speed internet capabilities, email and Wi-Fi,” said Tyler McGee, Vice President, Telecommunications, Samsung Electronics Australia.

As part of Windows Mobile 6.5, Mobile Office means you can edit and share a variety of Microsoft Office documents with colleagues (Word, Excel and PowerPoint). The Samsung OMNIAPro is a reliable business companion when you’re working away from the office keeping you in touch and up to date with the latest changes to proposals, reports, appointments and urgent emails. Additionally, the in-built GPS function of the Samsung OMNIAPro utilises Telstra’s Whereis® Navigator product, keeping you on track for off-site meetings with real-time navigation complete with audio and visual turn-by-turn directions.

Ross Fielding, Executive Director, Telstra Wireless, Data, Applications and Services, said the Samsung OMNIAPro could also be easily customised to suit personal needs, “customers can set up the Samsung OMNIAPro with a unique look and feel. Thanks to the Windows Mobile Marketplace™ owners can also download and run their favourite Windows applications including Facebook and Twitter.”

The Samsung OMNIAPro also features a raft of onboard multimedia features, including a 3.2 Megapixel camera with smile shot, music player, FM radio and stereo Bluetooth support, meaning you can enjoy superior audio playback via your headphones or speakers. Additional advanced mobile content is also available to keep you entertained from Telstra with BigPond® TV, Mobile Foxtel and access to the BigPond® Mobile Portal*.

The Samsung OMNIAPro is now available exclusively from Telstra through T[life]™ stores, Telstra Shops and dealers. The phone is available for AUD$0 upfront on a AUD$30 plan over 24 months^ or outright for a recommended retail price of only AUD$529.
