Stupid commercial. I think they could have come up with another example to demonstrate the vividness of the Super AMOLED that wouldn't involve dropping the phone in water! Sammy, show your customers how the phone should be used, not the last thing in the world you should do to it! Luckily, Android users are smart enough to heed the warning in the commercial and know better than to drop it in water. iPhone couldn't run a commercial like this because the iDrones would start using their iPhones in the shower thinking it's waterproof lolololol.

I know I could have come up with something way better than that. I guess Samsung is prepping for much better commercials by dropping this crap. Only time will tell! lol What I really hope for is better software support in the U.S. Samsung STILL has a Galaxy S phone with 2.1. Poor Verizon Fascinate owners it looks like you will get Gingerbread before Froyo. Hopefully. My friend is bald now because every day he pulls his hair out because STILL there is no Froyo update. I really think this is the only Galaxy S phone in the world still running 2.1.
