     Glenda gets flexible with 3 and the Samsung Galaxy S
Thursday, 16th September 2010: 3, Ireland’s largest high speed network, has launched new
‘Flex’ plans for the Samsung Galaxy S. The new customer focused price plans are based on the
concept of total flexibility for 3 subscribers on Billpay.

Glamorous Xpose star Glenda Gilson was on hand with Sarah Kavanagh and Ruth Griffin to
launch the Samsung Galaxy S on the new Flex Smartphone plans. The new plans are
revolutionary, delivering better value for money to customers by automatically adapting to their
individual mobile usage style, thus ensuring that all available allowances are used up, before
the customer incurs any further charges.

The Samsung Galaxy S is the first smart phone to feature a 4 inch capacitive Super AMOLED
display. This amazing new screen technology, designed and built by Samsung, will be available
exclusively on Samsung mobiles for up to 12 months and allows for more vivid colour and
contrast than any other screen type.

Users can enjoy an amazing touch experience on the eye popping screen with access to an
application store with over 70 thousand applications. As the screen uses 20% less battery
power you can spend even longer browsing the internet or exploring all of those applications.

The Android powered handset boasts an ultra thin screen with no space between the glass and
the touch sensors. This means that you can use the screen with only the smallest touch of your
