Even more freedom:O2 presents the new smartphone option for mobile Internet access

MUNICH. From June 1, mobile Internet fans will be able to enjoy even more freedom when surfing and downloading from their mobiles. Telefónica O2 Germany is launching the mobile phone surf flatrate with a smartphone option. Customers can enjoy super-fast Internet access using their mobile phones with a data volume of up to one gigabyte per month.
An ever-increasing number of customers are discovering the pleasures of mobile Internet access with high-quality smartphones, such as those available from Palm, Motorola Milestone or HTC Desire. Video and application downloads as well as communication via social communities using mobile broadband networks are increasingly becoming a part of everyday life. Smartphones are connected to the Internet pretty much all of the time, and the demand for higher data volumes is increasing constantly. O2 has therefore created the perfect solution for high volume users: the smartphone option for the mobile phone surf flatrate. For just 5 euros per month, in addition to the mobile phone surf flatrate (i.e. 15 euros/month in total), customers can enjoy more surfing action with the fastest possible speeds. The mobile phone surf flatrate with the smartphone option has a minimum period of three months (one month with the prepaid version). The new option is the perfect addition to the mobile Internet packages from O2. The mobile phone surf flatrate is ideal for customers who access the Internet regularly using their mobiles, and the mobile Internet flatrate is perfect for accessing the Internet with a surf stick and laptop.
