Through an agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group and
Gameloft, Telecom 027 customers with compatible handsets can exclusively

Universal Pictures’ King Kong, from three-time Academy Award® winner Peter

has everybody talking with its “sensational” graphics.

“It takes mobile games to a whole new level, and will really make King
Kong come to life for Telecom customers.”

picture is available exclusively to Telecom 027 customers from 1 November
