New inspiring opportunities for everyone to experience and take part in the London 2012 Olympic Games at a click of a button 

Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd, a global leader in consumer electronics and a Presenting Partner of the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay have expanded their apps by including Olympic related global apps to the local apps store.

Says Craige Fleischer, Director of Mobile Communications at Samsung Electronics South Africa: “We have created a specific ‘London 2012’ section on the App store – which not only provides consumers with the opportunity to access the latest information and guides while in London for the Olympic Games, but for those who aren’t as fortunate to be attending the Olympics, they can access all the latest game information and activities at the click of a button – allowing them to be part of the Olympic action.”

‘The London 2012’ is a pocket guide to the Games! In the summer of 2012 London and the UK will come alive with events, celebrations and activities during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, but regardless of where you are in the world, you have an opportunity to be a part of the festivities. All Samsung Galaxy Smartphone and Tablet owners will have access to all of this and more, with some of the Apps included, but not limited to:
