Cellcom Israel Ltd. today launched the first Android phone in Israel, preempting the Israel launch of iPhone by rivals Partner Communications Ltd. and Pelephone Communications Ltd. by several weeks. Cellcom will launch the Samsung i7500 Galaxy Android phone, which includes a five-megapixel camera, a 3.2-inch screen, and eight gigabyte memory, which can be expanded to 32 gigabytes.
Cellcom CEO Amos Shapiro said, “I am proud to say that Cellcom is the first operator to offer its customers, as of today, the first Android device in Israel. Cellcom is the third operator in the world to launch this device. As always, Cellcom offers its customers the best communications solutions.”
Cellcom will charge NIS 105 a month over 36 months for the Samsung i7500 and a three-year subscription to navigation content.
