Samsung now has Galaxy series ads for those searching for #Blackberry10
#BlackBerry10 is one thing that would be a trend in the coming hours and maybe even days, and the well-oiled machine that is Samsung has smartly predicted that and now those searching for #BlackBerry10 in Google get to see a commercial for the Samsung Galaxy series and how it hits a work and life balance.

And it’s not just Google - Samsung has also bought ads for #BlackBerry10 on Twitter. Searching for #BlackBerry10 on the microblogging site returns ads for #galaxyatwork.

It’s clear that Samsung is using BlackBerry’s pitch, but it’s also true that Galaxy smartphones like the Note II come with SAFE standards for enterprise.

In either case, Samsung knew BlackBerry 10 will be a lot about the enterprise and responded logically. BlackBerry on the other hand made an emphasis on having just one device for both work and play.

Dude, please don't reply to anything. If you must, then at least attempt proper grammar and spelling. I'll never knock someone for at minimum just attempting to get the English language right.

@14545: After all, it's the thought that counts and not the grammar, you grammar freak. He actually made a more sensible comment than you do.

another "coward" move by samsung SMH............why is "the king of android" WORRIED about a new coming platform and phone? Shouldnt they be secure enough to not even pay attention to blackberry? isnt blackberry suppose to be a "fail" as some say? So why is samsung going out of their way to prevent a dying platform from advertising its product? I smell fear and cowardness........do you?

What are you talking about? It's called trying to maintain/grow market share. It's what any business that isn't wanting to go out of business would do. And I don't even care that much for Samsung.

paying Google to stop someone from "climbing the ladder of success" sounds a bit more like YOU"RE AFRAID OF COMPETITION..........than it is them just "being smart" or them "making business moves"

Actually, Samsung is known for playing smart (and rude, at the same time) to competition and will try to steal the spotlight of any other company. For all we know, Samsung is a huge attention-grabber anyway, as if they never had enough. And YES, they paid Google for advertising because it's Google's business model to sell ad space on search results?

The only one here that seems desperate is you...tryin to make a name for yourself at the cost of Sammy and hoping to get some pie! So why dont u run along and play while the adults have the conversation here?

This is why Sammy sells so many toys. They leave no stone unturned. Apple has to resort to lawsuits. Sammy just markets and markets and markets.

Marketing isn't the only factor that determines sales. Look at Surface RT. Microsoft 'marketed' the hell out of it yet look at all the sales predictions.

No they didn't. I barely see any Microsoft ads other than one where they "destroyed" an iPad and iPad mini and I don't even think that was by Microsoft.

Yes they did. Their advertisements were everywhere on TV and the internet. Even in shopping malls. Just because you did not see them does not mean the rest of the populace didn't.

"Just because you did not see them does not mean the rest of the populace didn't." Actually.... It would seem that the rest of the populace didn't see the ads either. No sales is no sales.

Marketing 'effort' doesn't make sales. Marketing conversion makes sales. Whatever effort MS made was completely wasted, 'cause it didn't make the sale happen. Apple was a master at making people neurotic about having to buy iToys in years past. Recently, they have lost that magic, which is one reason their share price is off its high.
