Samsung Galaxy Note II used to announce winners at American Music Awards
The American Music Awards appear to have kicked the traditional envelopes and note cards to the curb in favor of technology to bring the event into the modern era of going paperless. Instead, the announcers had in their hands the Samsung Galaxy Note II.

In a clever marketing angle from Samsung, the handset delivered the news to the announcers so they may present the relevant awards to the winners throughout the evening. Many of the announcers presented the screens to the cameras and audience to observe for themselves.  The pictures tell the story.

In the video below, we see the Note II play its vital role as US Olympian Apolo Anton Ohno and actress Kerry Washington announce Linkin Park with the Alternative Rock Award. Just as noteworthy was Linkin Park’s short and to-the-point “thank you” to the usual suspects. While we did not see any sign of the S-Pen in play, Samsung definitely earned itself a winning spot for product placement at a high-profile, widely televised event.

That's awesome! Great placement by Samsung indeed.
I think the Note II also the perfect device for the event. Not too small or too big.

LOL, SS now is everywhere, first the Queen, and now the music royals.

I also heard that Rihanna loves her One X+ and James Bond thinks Xperia is a great hi tech weapon.

What's more? I heard that some criminals especially like iPhones and iPads that they stole lots of them in France and US.

Hmm, very interesting.

Folks at Apple are green with ENVY. Sammy took a page out of their marketing book! I wonder how long before Apple tries to get Sammy banned from beating Apple at their own game.....

I spoke to friends who work for d**k Clark Productions and, apparently, he AMA's did consider the iPhone but were afraid that the iPhone would 'announce it wrong' and that in the onslaught of the fiasco Chris Brown's head would explode.

I have to agree bro...
Note 1 wasn't really a looker, but Samsung hit the right 'note' with the 2. It's sexy and a beast of a phone...

Samsung is excellent with marketing their products. Using the note 2 for an awarding event can attract more customers

I wonder how much money Samsung payed to have Note 2 on the highlights. But a true winner desereved to be on the highlight and Note 2 is a true winner.

Completely brilliant move, all the times they held the award for the camera to see who won, the impressive screen was right there on camera. Samsung nailed it, whatever they paid was worth the incredible amount of attention the Note II got.
