Samsung Mobile, one of the leading mobile phone brands in Canada, today announced the availability of the Samsung Flight available exclusively through Rogers.

Flight is the social butterfly of the wireless world, offering users enhanced multimedia functionality through a 2.8″ touch screen that slides back to uncover a full QWERTY keyboard. Users can also share videos and 2.0 MP resolution photos with their friends and family through SMS and MMS, Instant Messaging and mobile e-mail.

“Flight was designed to be the teen’s dream, allowing them to post instant ‘wish you were here’ messages and instantly connect with friends – whether they’re on the other side of the ski hill or the other side of the country,” said Paul Brannen, General Manager, Mobile Communications, Samsung Electronics Canada. “It’s the ideal phone for those constantly on the go; whether they’re touch screen talkers or high-speed texters, they can always be connected to their social networks.”

Flight also offers one-touch access to favourites and shortcuts, as well as a built-in HTML browser that allows users to surf the web as easily as they would from their home computers, including the option of bookmarking their favourite pages. In addition, Flight features any-key answer, an MP3 player, pre-loaded games, voice recognition, and multi-party calling capability.

Flight also provides users longevity with up to five hours of talk time and 350 hours of standby time and is equipped with stereo Bluetooth technology and 82 MB of shared memory and Java support.
