Samsung New Zealand says teaming the Samsung GALAXY S II with XT, the smartphone network, will create a remarkable mobile experience.

The Samsung GALAXY S II, powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread and featuring a 1.2GHz Dual-Core processor is enabled for 21Mbps on HSPA+ network connections, available nationwide on XT.

Stefan Lecchi, Head of HHP, Samsung Electronics New Zealand says, �Kiwis are already in love with the Samsung GALAXY family of smartphones and tablets, so we�re excited to see the GALAXY S II make its debut on Telecom�s smart phone network. Couple this with Adobe Flash support and you have one of the fastest mobile experiences available.

Telecom Chief Marketing Officer Kieren Cooney says, �We�re delighted to welcome Samsung GALAXY S II users to our smartphone network � they�re going to enjoy a mobile experience second to none.

�Fast download speeds means video with less buffering, super�fast applications and connecting through Facebook or Twitter with ease.�

At just 8.49mm thin with a powerful processor, sharp 8-megapixel camera and vivid 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen display, the Samsung GALAXY S II marks a significant evolution from its predecessor, the successful GALAXY S.

A range of apps comes pre-loaded, including Samsung Dive � a free remote find, lock and wipe service which offers complete peace of mind if you ever lose your phone. Kies Air allows users to sync their Samsung GALAXY S II with their PC, and back up personal information via Wi-Fi.

Many more apps are available through Samsung Apps, and Samsung GALAXY S II users also get exclusive access to integrated portals like Social Hub and Readers Hub.
