Samsung has once again taken an unnecessary but comical swipe at Apple and fans of its iDevices with the Korean company’s latest TV ad stating queuing for the latest Apple handset is “like detention.”
Roping in the help of glam rock wannabe Justin Hawkins of British band The Darkness, the advert for the Samsung Galaxy Note, which aired for the first time during latest night’s Super Bowl XLVI, shows those in an Apple queue once again being ‘Samsunged’ as they are exposed to the oversized, stylus touting Note.
An over the top advert, much like the sporting spectacle during which it was aired, the latest Samsung Galaxy Note promotion plays on The Darkness’ song ‘I believe in a thing called love’ with users of the Android handset seen singing to their devices the lines: “I can’t explain all the feelings that you’re making me feel” and “I want to kiss you every minute, every hour, every day.”
Bridging the gap between standard smartphones and dedicated tablets the Samsung Galaxy Note sports a stunning 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display with an impressive 1280 x 800p resolution.
Running Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS the Samsung Galaxy Note also plays host to an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and a super slim 9.65mm thick form factor.
