Watch Samsung Galaxy S II being sent into space today at 7am Eastern and send live messages!17
The Samsung Galaxy S II will be tied to a space balloon and sent to the stratosphere as part of promotional activities supporting Japan, proving once again that Samsung is all-out marketing its finest example of cell phone making. Our own editor Basil Kronfli was literally hanging off a cliff while trying to unbox the dual-core goodness as part of an Extreme Unboxing event in the Snowdonia mountain range in Wales, so we know extreme marketing when we see it. Google tried something similar with the Nexus S, excusing itself it was for scientific purposes instead of pure unaltered fun.
This, however, takes the Galaxy S II promotion to a whole new level, many miles above ground, and we hope the Ustream feed will work at 7am Eastern, 12pm GMT, when the show is about to begin. Moreover, it will be showing your tweets and messages live while flying up and away, so check-in with your Twitter, Facebook or Ustream account below, and start typing away your impressions. Samsung asks that you send some supporting messages to the Japanese as well.
