Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung GALAXY Note part of opening ceremonies at the Summer Olympics
The Samsung GALAXY Note and Galaxy S III were featured at a very important point in the show. It's fitting that we've been able to use these devices-designed to enhance human communications at an event that connected the whole world."-Martin Green, Head of Ceremonies
In a post dated Saturday, Samsung looked into the future to write about the Opening Ceremony of the Summer Olympics in London which actually doesn't start until later this afternoon EDT. In the post, Samsung makes it sound as though both the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note are featured in the show. Samsung is an official sponsor of the Olympic games and has offered some Olympic themed models including special editions for the Samsung GALAXY Note phablet and the Samsung Galaxy S III. A special version of the Samsung Galaxy S III is available for the athletes taking part in the games and includes Visa's payWave mobile payment app. Also, a special edition flip cover made for the Olympics is now available at Samsung PIN pop-up stores near the location of the Olympic Games.  Over 10 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III have been sold since its launch.

Getting back to the Opening Ceremony, both Samsung models will appear at the end of a cultural segment that is about the invention of the internet and the roll it has in global communications. It seems strange to be reading about an event taking place that hasn't started yet. At least you are able to know exactly when to look to see two of Samsung's heavyweights taking part in the action.
"We are so honored to be part of such a special occasion people from all over the world watched this celebration unfold, whether it be that on their TV, PC or Smartphone, the Smartphone, specifically the Galaxy S III being key as it unlocks a whole new way in which people can watch and participate in the games."-Younghee Lee, Senior VP and head of Global Marketing, Samsung mobile

Did you see the Olympians taking photos and videos and some of them even calling? What phone where they using the most? The S3 or an Iphone. Of course the s3's where provided by Samsung and some of the Olympians using them even said in reports that they where surprised by the phones camera capabilities :D

And in the ceremony it was there a couple of times aswell. But it really surprised me that Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) used a Galaxy Ace :O

Can't have one article without some random tool mentioning Apple. Just comment on the article content and quit with the troll/flame bait.

The Olympics logo looks like a bunch of condoms.
