About ANDROID

WHAT IS IT?

Android™ is Google's™ operating system for smart phones. It's basically the software that runs the entire phone - like Windows for PCs or OSX for Macs. The latest version of Android™ is 4.2 (aka Jelly Bean), which boasts improved speed and performance, plus a stack of other new or improved features. Before Jelly Bean was Ice Cream Sandwich, Honeycomb (tablets only), Gingerbread, Froyo and Eclair. What's next? Rumour has it we might be in for a slice of Key Lime Pie.

WHAT'S AN APP?

An Android™ app is an application that gives you the freedom to search, follow, read, update, play, save, connect, and anything else you can think of that will make using your own smart phone a breeze. Many Android™ phones come pre-loaded with Google™ apps like Gmail, Google Search, Map, Calendar and YouTube™. But whether you have a specific functionality in mind, or feel like trying something new, the Android Market™ is available for you to choose from thousands of apps to suit your wants and needs.

WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT IT?

The beautiful thing about Android™ phones is that you can personalise your phone to suit you. Customise different home screens to suit your lifestyle; stay up to date and connected with your friends by integrating your fave social networking apps; experience smooth mobile web browsing on your terms.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLAN

If you want to use your smart phone to do a lot of uploading or downloading, or watching lots of videos through apps like YouTube™ then you want to ensure you have plenty of data. You can add a data plan to any postpaid mobile plan or check out the included data on our postpaid plans here.
