Samsung promotes Captivate for AT&T?
With ads for the Motrorola DROID X ruling the airwaves, we haven't seen much carrier promotion for the two launched Samsung Galaxy S models. So after running some generic television ads for the Samsung Galaxy S, the Korean based firm reached into its pockets to help promote the AT&T variant of the handset, the Samsung Captivate. Or did they? Actually, if you listen closely to the ad, the Captivate name is not used. The announcer says, "Ever wonder if you could have cinema quality entertainment in the palm of your hand? We did, so we created the Samsung Galaxy S." The AT&T branding on the top of the phone can be read if you have your head turned 90 degrees to the left and at the end of the spot, in small print, it says "available at AT&T" with the carrier's trademarked ball image. Most of the ad's copy revolves around "The wonder of Samsung" and while most of you out there would be able to put two and two together and realize that it is the Captivate, the average Joe watching the ad would probably only catch the Samsung Galaxy S name. It is a good job by the manufacturer to keep its name in front of the public while still sending people to AT&T for the phone. Well played, Samsung. Now what are you going to do for T-Mobile's Samsung Vibrant?
