Can Samsung convince Dilbert on the Galaxy Note?

Can Samsung convince Dilbert on the Galaxy Note?

Samsung can't stop sniping at Apple, and the latest Galaxy Note street challenge seems to have convinced at least one disgruntled iPhone owner; however, the Korean firm still has Dilbert to persuade. For its latest commercial, Samsung apparently took  its 5.3-inch smartphone-tablet hybrid to the mean streets of New York City, giving Android users a few hours to get to grips with the "phablet", and then pitted them against iPhone owners on a series of challenges.

Galaxy Note for AT&T Review

Galaxy Note for AT&T Review

The Galaxy Note is no stranger to SlashGear: we reviewed the international version back in November 2011, finding it a curious - and in certain ways compelling - anomaly on the mobile landscape. Since then we've had plenty of experience with the oversized smartphone, most recently the arrival of AT&T's LTE version. Differences between the two are slight, so a full re-review isn't in order. However, read on for our latest thinking on this smartphone/tablet hybrid, where it stands up, and where - despite what Samsung insists - it falls flat on its 5.3-inch face.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tipped for MWC 2012 debut

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tipped for MWC 2012 debut

Samsung has apparently confirmed a 10.1-inch tablet version of its Galaxy Note pen-enabled smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, with an S-Pen developer event to be held at MWC 2012 later this month. Mention of the device - presumably a version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with stylus input - is made on Samsung's official blog, and while it's possibly a mistype, other signs point to it being a legitimate product.

LG Optimus Vu and Samsung Galaxy Note pictured side-by-side

To say the least, LG made some heads turn when its newest smartphone, known as the Optimus Vu, made its rounds on the blogosphere. The fact that it sports a 5-inch display is intriguing enough; it's part of what could be new trend. But what's really odd is its 4:3 aspect ratio, making us think back to the days of old-school TV. You know, before the letters "HD" meant anything to most people. The question many posed was "why do we want to step back to that time?"

Samsung SuperBowl misses gigantic opportunity, fails socially

Samsung SuperBowl misses gigantic opportunity, fails socially

As Samsung's series of Apple-crushing advertisements came to a conclusion (or so they say) at the SuperBowl, Twitter filleted the finale as a terrible final note. This advertisement for many was their first look at the Galaxy Note, a device which has been out overseas for several months not, it having a gigantic display, the power of the Galaxy S II, and a stylus. The commercials made by Samsung in this same vein up until now were praised for their ability to capture the viewer and make simple sense to both Android and iPhone users - according to Twitter users, Samsung threw that winning formula out the window completely for the final installment.

Samsung Super Bowl ad skewers Apple with a stylus

Samsung Super Bowl ad skewers Apple with a stylus

Samsung took its current brand of Apple slapping to the Super Bowl this weekend, calling in the stars - some better known than others - to show how the Galaxy Note can help iPhone-addicts find cellular freedom. The 90 second spot, which you can see after the cut, is Samsung's first Super Bowl ad but revives some of the Korean company's common themes: that Apple's brand of queuing, brainwashed automatons can rediscover life if only they grab the stylus or stroke the touchscreen of a Galaxy-series device.
