Wow. When I read the speculation on this ad a few days ago, most postings thought the Note LTE would be a silly waste of money as it falls into that "niche" department. I didn't comment, but I agreed, as most guesses centered around a new tablet.

9 million, the cost of hiring a big time director, and than all the other promotions to follow. I'll say it again.

Wow.

They have confidence in their product. Watch the sgs3 come with with a 4.7 inch screen and a stylus functionality lol "man I want that new mini note now....."

That is true, they did say they wanted to carry over the S-Pen to other devices. So, it is possible for the GSIII to have it.

The Note is sincerely an excellent phone and they pretty much have a lock on the market, as small as it may be currently. But, everyone I've showed my phone to is at first shocked, and they all ask me "that's a phone?!" Then when the laughter and shock wears off they say they want one.

As someone who is ready to buy this phone, I am all for them advertising and selling as many Notes as possible. Why you ask? Because it makes it that more likely that not only would they release a Note 2 but that this time AT&T won't wait so long to release it (although it wasn't as the GSII was).

One thing I can’t figure out is why Samsung would pay 9 million for a 90 second spot for a device that is currently slated for 1 carrier. If I were paying 9 million, I would make sure that my device could be available to anybody and everybody (regardless of carrier) to ensure that I would get a solid return on my investment. Yes, I know AT&T is the largest US carrier; but they are only one piece of the pie. This ad is during the Superbowl and point is to get your product to mass market saturation.
