New Olympic Mobile Phones from Samsung

Samsung is getting prepared for the 2008 Beijing Olympics with the launch of three new mobile phone models. This comes as part of the Olympic Games Campaign which supports this edition of the contest.

All three phone models feature high-end performances in some unique designs. Samsung E848 is an elegant, delicate-looking sliding handset which is meant to provide high capabilities in a slim and appealing case. The other two models, Samsung P318 and U308 have been presented in fewer details, although they also have an interesting design. Although not as stylish as the E848 model, these two feature a more modern and practical aspect which might appeal to many people.

You can play mobile Blackjack on these devices. The game has a "Game Tour" so you can play and preview it for free!

2008 olympics ticket

BEJING, Feb. 16 -- "Beijing promises not to set a dual standard for 2008 Olympics ticket prices", Beijing vice mayor Liu Jingmin said on an Olympic themed-program yesterday that aired on Beijing Television.

"If Chinese and Westerners are stimulating different prices, it will not respect the Olympic spirit."

After more than one year of study, including an online analysis, the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad (BOCOG), instituted the final ticket prices based on how much people can give, said Liu, who is also the vice executive president of BOCOG.

Liu more explained the conclusion drawn from in-depth study on both urban and rural use levels was to adopt the relatively low 2008 olympics ticket price system through the Beijing Games.

"The sum of the 2008 games fares less than 100 yuan (12.5 U.S. dollars) accounts for the 58 percent of the sum," Liu said," compared to the tickets fee of Athens and Sydney Olympic Games, 2008 fares could be cheaper.

When asked if someone with higher incomes would be charged more, Liu said "that's absolutely prohibited, it goes against the Olympic spirit of honesty, fairness and openness to all."

More work should be done to promise the fair distribution of low-price Olympic tickets

The long-awaited ticket prices for the 2008 Beijing Olympics were available on Nov.29, 2006 on the official site of the Games and the prices for seats at the opening ceremony are as low as 200 yuan (25.50 U.S. dollars). More than 58 per cent of all tickets for open sale will cost 100 yuan (13 U.S. dollars) or less, with the lowest price being 30 yuan (4 U.S. dollars).

The BOCOG will also present student tickets, which account for about 14 per cent of all locally available tickets and cost merely 5 yuan (0.64 U.S. dollars) for preliminaries and 10 yuan (1.28 U.S. dollars) for finals.
