Samsung strikes again at Apple fanboys with another Galaxy S II ad

Samsung strikes again at Apple fanboys with another Galaxy S II ad
You might already know that today is a big day for Apple fanboys, creatives and baristas included - the biggest Apple store is opening doors in New York’s Grand Central station and the huge line is already forming. No better time for the next hilarious punch at fanboyism from Samsung, right? Samsung probably agrees as it has released the next commercial in its series showing how much better the Samsung Galaxy S II is than the iPhone. Or at least trying to convince us in that and when it comes to waiting in line it definitely has a viable argument.

But on the flipside of things, there is the counter argument: “36 hours is a small price to pay to keep all of my music,” Samsung makes a point by depicting three fanboys waiting in front of an Apple store.

At the end, the ad shows the Samsung Galaxy S II and T-Mobile’s logo, and for T-Mobile - the only major US carrier not offering the iPhone - that funny rhetoric could be life saving. In either case, check out the full commercial below.

VZW has none of the blame. They have never said when they intend to launch the phone. blame the rumor mill for dragging 300000 launch dates through the mud without proof.

I called this morning and they wouldn't tell me anything.

My friend works at VZW and says they have the phones in store (I was quite jealous she was playing with one while talking to me on the phone) but aren't allowed to sell them.

She said they haven't given any dates yet and apparently when VZW approves a release date an email will be sent out (at least that's what she said happened with the Rezound).

I'm just waiting for her to tell me she's received the email...

Dakim,
Dont believe the rep. They only know what they read on sites like these. When VZW is ready to tell the reps, they will also tell the world. Thats pretty much how all american cell companies operate.
Reps dont know any more than this site does.

In two years from now, ZTE or Huawei or another low-cost producer will make fun of Samsung while they take share from Samsung. What goes around comes around and these OEMs are going to do the same thing that Samsung did to other companies. Nothing like android OEMs eating themselves.

The same thing that Samsung did to other companies? You mean sue them and try to ban their products for ridiculous reasons? Oh wait, that was Apple.

So you must be talking about releasing ads that very clearly makes fun of the other companies products. Oh wait, Apple did that first too.

Dammit...

Maybe that'll happen once all 6 billion people in the world have a smartphone. However, the market isn't even close to saturated yet. Remember, it took three decades for the cell phone market in the US to become saturated, and people still need new phones every few years, unlike the frequency of their need for new carriers.

Except this ad mostly emphasizes the features of ANDROID... Nothing to do with Samsung really.

anyone ever tell you ardent, that you are like the most negative person.. ever?

geesh.


Your right, what goes around.. comes around. Apple is reaping what they sow. They started the "im going to ban you for taking my marketshare" wars, and now Moto might be turning them on their heads.. Apple spent years making fun of MS with their "im a mac" commercials, and now samsung is turning that on their heads.

Instead of being a jerk all the time.. why not just say "well, there was at least some honesty and a little giggle there".. or.. not say anything at all. :)

These are funny, effective ads. And yes I would say that if it was an Apple add.....

I feel sorry for Samsung, just because they cant fight back on those lawsuits, they are doing commercials to make fun of Apple and its fans. What a loser.

actually, except for that ban in germany which samsung is still appealing, i think they have won..ALL of the lawsuits apple has thrown at them. :) And since Samsung did that slight redesign of the G-Tab, that german ban doesnt really even apply anymore, does it?

Maybe it's because in lawsuits it is much harder to attack then defend.

After all everyone is innocent until proven guilty.

That is why Samsung lost too when attacking Apple.

I feel sorry for Apple. They don't want to compete in the tech market fairly so they start suing other companies to take out the competition. Ironically, its these companies that supply the hardware components of Apple's products...

And the lawsuits are ridiculous anyway. In one case Apple is asking Samsung to make a tablet by not putting on essential features found on every tablet to avoid further lawsuits. Its like saying 'You can make a computer so long as it doesn't need a screen'. Pathetic Apple.

You are really going to argue this? Did you read the article about what Apple's recommendations to Samsung were? Yeah, they were absolutely ridiculous.

Samsung just got recently a new contract with Apple to keep making their future chips for iPads and iPhones. So yes Samsung still and it will still be making stuff for Apple.

Don't be surprised if apple asked Samsung to stop this commercial since you can see graphic designs hanging from the window that obviously belong to the Apple iPhone. Samsung might be sued for patent infringement. LOL
