Samsung Galaxy Note 3 becomes official phone of Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics: all athletes will get it

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 becomes official phone of Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics: all athletes will get it
The 2014 Winter Olympics in the Russian city of Sochi will bring together some of the world’s finest athletes and while not all of them will be able to go home with a medal, there will be one trophy that they'll all bring - a Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Samsung has just announced that its Galaxy Note 3 will become the official phone of the Sochi Olympics, an event that’s bound to happen from February 7th to February 23rd.

Along with that bonus for athletes, Samsung will also bring a new Wireless Olympic Works (WOW) Android application tailor made for the Sochi games. The app will allow you to quickly and easily stay up to date with the latest news, scores, medal counts, and other related events.

All of this and more will make up the "Samsung Smart Olympic Games" initiative that aims to keep you posted real-time with what’s happening in Russia early next year. For those who cannot make it there, it’s a nice effort, but we can help but envy the athletes for their brand new Note 3s.

All i can say is,,, I advise all these Olympians to Regional Activate their phones before they leave there for their home country.

As much coverage as the Olympics get ... Samsung would not need a single commercial with this approach. There will be a Note 3 commercial every time the camera zooms in on any athlete.

Nice. No need for a commercial when the athletes are clutching their N3s and with the billboards/ signs in the backgrounds.

Samsung very generous, give the Note 3!

Apple only willing to loan their iPhone 5s to a "up" market fashion show. Free publicity without the cost then repackage those phones to be sold.

Just got the S-View cover for it. It's nice, but not sure it's worth the $60 asking price for it. As for the phone itself, I love it.
