Samsung used paid actors to play the role of Galaxy Tab buyers
On the video of the Interview Project, Freelance Travel Writer Joan Hess said about her Samsung Galaxy Tab, "I would mostly use it communicating with people all around the globe when I'm on the move. It's sexy, like me!" Film director Karl Shefelman was featured in a second spot for the unreleased Galaxy Tab 10.1. A third alleged Samsung customer, Real-Estate CEO Joseph Kolinski, said he used the Galaxy Tab 8.9, a third Samsung tablet with a display in between the 7 inches of the Galaxy Tab and the 10.1 inches of the bigger model. "I'm not very tech savvy," noted Kolinski but he said that the Galaxy Tab 8.9 helped him to stay on top of his busy schedule and said that he was "surprised how productive he was able to be with it." It might be more surprising to learn that at the time, the unit in Kolinski's possession did not yet turn on and the device isn't expected to launch until June. Further investigation revealed that Hess and Kolinski are actors living in New York, while Shefelman works for a production company that has done work for Samsung. Play the video below to see the three stories.
This all shows how competitive the tablet business is becoming so early in its life. Already, such features as being the thinnest, the lightest and the most productive are being used by manufacturers to promote its products even before consumers know for sure if they even really need a tablet.
