Samsung Telecommunications America and SA Studios Global, a multicultural marketing agency, will offer an exclusive Samsung Messager handset (SCH-r450) designed by Mister Cartoon, the acclaimed artist, later this month.
Samsung Messager will be available to consumers in all MetroPCS markets. Mister Cartoon wallpapers, ringtones and animation are preloaded on the handsets with additional downloads available from the MetroPCS Web site. A portion of revenues generated from this MetroPCS and SA Studios Global initiative will go directly to funding community art centers, outreach programs for at-risk youth and art supplies for local Los Angeles schools, Mister Cartoon’s hometown. Additionally, the first ten phones in the series will be auctioned for charity on the MetroPCS Web site in the month of August. For more information, visit www.metropcs.com/mistercartoon.
Mister Cartoon, renowned tattoo artist, car customizer, illustrator and designer, has worked with numerous celebrities, including Eminem, Beyonce, director Brian Grazer and most recently Lance Armstrong with Nike for the Livestrong Foundation. Mister Cartoon’s products have become collectors’ items worldwide.
