Packed with functionality and features to wow young minded consumers this summer, Samsung Electronics Australia has launched the slim and stylish Samsung Star. Ready to support summer party planning, this latest phone boasts a sleek 11.9mm body and an intuitive interface at an affordable price. Shining in black, the Samsung Star can be purchased exclusively through Virgin Mobile for only RRP AUD$199.

Samsung’s intuitive TouchWiz User Interface makes it easier than ever to communicate with friends and family via SMS, email or social networking. Offering three writing options, the Samsung Star lets you choose from your standard numerical keypad, a virtual QWERTY keyboard or you can hand write your texts using the stylus provided. The Samsung Star can conveniently convert handwritten messages on screen into text creating a quick and easy way to catch up with friends and family and update them with your news.

Set up your Samsung Star to access your content and your pictures in a way that suits you. Featuring an 'accelerometer sensor', you can view the screen on portrait or landscape by tilting the screen and watching the format change to suit your viewing needs. Stylish snappers can also take pictures on a 3.2 Mega-Pixel camera and view them on the 3inch full-touch screen. A Photo Contact option means you can simply touch the picture of the person you want to call and you’ll be connected instantly.
Tyler McGee, Vice President of Telecommunications, Samsung Electronics Australia is looking forward to seeing the Samsung Star mirror its overseas success this summer.

“The Samsung Star is already basking in global success as Samsung’s fastest selling mobile phone by exceeding an exceptional five million sales milestone in just four months. With its cool and funky body, we believe it will be a hit with youngsters this summer. If its global success is anything to go by, the Samsung Star will shoot off the shelves this season!” said McGee.
