New addition to Samsung’s Galaxy portfolio to hit shops on 17th March

Following the global announcement in the New Year, Samsung has today revealed that the Galaxy Ace Plus, an enhanced and higher-specced version of the Galaxy Ace, will be available in the UK from this Saturday 17th March.

Simon Stanford, Vice President, UK & IRE Telecommunications & Networks Division said: “We’ve had a positive response to the Galaxy Ace Plus since announcing it earlier this year and are looking forward to offering fans of the much loved Galaxy Ace an alternative device. As with all smartphones in our Galaxy range, the Galaxy Ace Plus is stylishly designed and packed full of features making it a great mid-range phone for our customers.”

Thanks to its impressive 1GHz processor, HSDPA 7.2 Mbps connectivity and WiFi 802.11 functionality, the Galaxy Ace Plus allows quick and easy web browsing, downloading of content and streaming of videos. Owners of the device benefit from up to 2GB of storage for multimedia content and 1GB of direct storage for applications – more than any mid-range smartphone currently available.

Featuring Android Gingerbread and Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface, the Galaxy Ace Plus allows mobile tasks to be completed much faster and more efficiently. Music fans can make use of a new play progress bar, whilst unanswered calls can be rejected with text messages and unwanted callers added to a black list log. Whilst ThinkFree, an optional tool, can be used by customers to view and edit Office documents, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDFs, while they are out and about.

The Galaxy Ace Plus will be available in the UK from 17th March with a variety of networks including Vodafone and online retailers.
