I reckon Samsung have probably caught up with Apple on the advertising front. Billboards, TV adverts, product placements, full page adverts in national publications etc, Samsung does them all.

they are catching up. they have nowhere near apple's broad advertising range. Its new to samsung and they are learning pretty quickly. Until the SGS2, u rarely ever saw a samsung advertisement unless it was in a cell phone store. Even the SGS1 barely got advertising.. it was mostly word of mouth.
Apple has had slick advertising for decades.

Unless there's something I'm missing, Samsung pretty much advertise in all the same ways as Apple does?

I think it's because of the perception that iPhone buyers are buying iPhones just because they are Apple (whether that is the truth or not, that's not what I'm trying to say, but it's just the current perception), whereas Galaxy buyers are buying Galaxy phones because it represents the pinnacle of Android Hardware (again could be true or not, but just perception).
Don't get me wrong, I may come off as an anti-Apple guy because I'm an Android user myself, but I've got no problems with Apple and I tremendously respect them for truly bringing the smartphone industry to the mainstream, and opening up the platform for other smartphone manufacturers to exploit the market. However, having said all this, the current perception is that Apple is more of a cult following, and a massive one at that.
But in contrast Android "sheep" would jump brand-to-brand depending on who's leading the field of hardware; and currently Samsung is the leader in this realm. If HTC or any other brands step up, we'll jump ship. Thus, I think the word "sheep" doesn't really apply to buyers of Samsung, because we just go for the best hardware around without brand loyalty.
Again all these points are just current perceptions in the mobile industry. I fully respect all Apple and Android users. And hey, who knows (I know this is far fetched), but if Apple comes up with a leading Android hardware, we'll buy it.

couldnt agree more,samsung,htc etc users will happily jump to another device if it is better where as apple users strictly will stay with apple no matter what..thats the difference i think aswel.

Even that's not true; we know from stats that all platforms have deflections to other, competing products. People sticking with a particular product is actually a good sign; it's a measure of how good that product is. People don't move away from products they are happy with, but they do move away from products that they are unhappy with.

What about you buying every sh*t nokia make? At least the "s-sheeps" get what they paid for and even more! Unlike you, frustrated nokia people. =]

Found this online "isheep:A follower of the Apple cult regardless of the usefulness or real worth of the product. Believes with without question the cult propaganda which installs the almost mythological belief that what they have just bought is the fastest or most user friendly product ever, only to be re-sold the same product, with a few minor tweaks, a few months later with the same rhetoric and complete disregard for reality. Easily mislead by their own egos and think they are being unique and innovative. Often wrong but convinced they are correct"

These definitions are a catch 22. They appear to be critical of people who buys products based on them liking that product. Should people buy products they don't like instead?! I can't understand the reasoning at all.

Am I the only one that thinks the repeated use if the word 'fits' refers to FLEXIBLE AMOLED?

Did anyone else notice that the music is very similar to the Mass Effect theme? You know - with the galaxy and all? :)

The flock of sheep is symbolical. Sheep can also mean a meek, unimaginative, or easily led person. Is Samsung referring to its competitors?

Not quite what I expected after all that buildup, but exciting nevertheless! I can't wait to finally see the new Galaxy phone.

Apple is good at marketing....not at innovating.
73. mrochester (unregistered)
Apple is good at both. Samsung are definitely getting better at marketing (and they are definitely reaping the rewards with their Galaxy line of phones!)
83. remixfa (Posts: 14226; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
apple does not innovate.
they might invigorate with taking existing stuff and repackaging it nicely.. but that is not innovate.
i really dont think people know what innovation means.
88. mrochester (unregistered)
That is innovation. And I quote...
"Innovation is the creation of better or more effective products, processes, services, technologies, or ideas that are accepted by markets, governments, and society. Innovation differs from invention in that innovation refers to the use of a new idea or method, whereas invention refers more directly to the creation of the idea or method itself."
So unless the definition of innovation has changed (which incidently comes from the latin word innovatus which means to renew or change), we can see from the acceptance and subsequent proliferation of competing products that Apple are a very innovative company.
There are many people who don't know what innovation means, and sadly, I think you're one of them!

Ok, that 2nd teaser video revealed a lot about the design imo... I guarantee it looks very similar to this...http://www.itproportal.com/201
I know it's been around a while but study the shape and then pause the video at numerous stages throughout and you will see the shape. Someone said earlier about it having a flexible paper tech screen... I'm pretty sure of it!
74. vodyssey (Posts: 3; Member since: 23 Apr 2012)
To add so you know what I mean... at the beginning look at the hills behind.. then the text that comes in at around 7 secs... at 21 secs look at the shape of the galaxy formation.. there's more but I'll leave you to look for the rest!! :)
75. vodyssey (Posts: 3; Member since: 23 Apr 2012)
last point but just in case you haven't seen or heard of Samsung's movement in the flexible amoled tech...http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-57411048-94/samsung-puts-youm-brand-on-its-flexible-screens/

Wow, remember how innovative APPLE was at adding cut and paste and MMS option to their phones? Yeah, that was awesomely innovative.
80. mrochester (unregistered)
Not everything is innovative...

People it is "sheep" not "sheeps". You're making the tech community look dumb.

The blue stone represents the tablet and the white one represents the SIII
