Second Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 ad shows how you can hide it from kids with a pencil
Considering that it has the prestigious title as being the thinnest and lightest 10.1” tablet on the market, it’s only natural to see Samsung making it the key standout feature in its latest advertisement spot with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

This time around, we find a father getting his game on with the tablet as his little one comes bursting through the door asking where is the Tab. It’s clearly evident that the youngster is indeed adamant of claiming ownership of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but the dad manages to hide it from view on his desk by simply placing a pencil next to it – thus hiding its profile from view from his son.

Of course, it goes to show how remarkably thin the tablet really is at 8.6 mm thick, which is interestingly enough the same thickness of a pencil. However, the kid eventually gets the last laugh in the end mainly because of his impervious attitude in getting the Tab.

I can't wait until Tabs are able to hide in stacks of scrap paper. "Honey? Where's my Tab? It was right next to the junk mail." "Oh, I shredded that stuff yesterday."

If they indeed have an iPad beating tablet, which i think in most respects they do, then why aren't they hammering televisions with advertisements? Creating a device that beats (again, mostly subjective) the iPad is quite a feat, but the only way its going to sell outside of Android fanboys circles is if you flood the airwaves with commercials. Samsung has the money, spend it. iDevices sell themselves, Samsungs don't Happily written from my Motorola Xoom Wi-fi

Fully agreed. It is a remarkable feat for Samsung to thin out their Tab, but it has so much more than that (e.g., larger/wider screen, better camera, more customizable). Marketing is not a time to be shy, they should be firing all cannons to get consumers to pony up their paychecks.

agreed!! its one of android greatest weakness.... aside from the few droid commercials, android manufacturer aren't showing their phones off with a commercial campaign that's worth it, there is no need to call it the iPad killer (to me that's actually more promotion for apple). simple made commercials showing good stuff that can be done by their flavors of android will do much better on sales. I've people calling android crap that have seen some current Samsung and SE campaign on YouTube and have changed their minds off of a sudden(as in no calling android crap anymore), and some even ordered an android phone for testing and seeing if they like some parts of the experience(just happened today), so if they want to beat their sales estimates on all their devices they must promote as if it where the end of the world.
