Here is Samsung’s First Galaxy S3 Ad for the Olympics

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QfelajE4wk[/youtube]

Here is the first Galaxy S3 ad that Samsung plans to air during the Olympics, this summer. It features David Beckhman and a whole bunch of GS3 owners sharing a video of him as he kicks a ball into a gong from some 60 yards away. You can see S Beam, quick calling from text messages, maps, camera burst mode, and facial recognition. If there is a better way to spread a global product than through the Olympic Games, feel free to let us know what that is.

  • The bike mount… must haz noa… where do I get it

  • bob martin

    If I buy the Galaxy S3 will I be able to kick a soccer ball like that and ride a bike like them?

    • Droidzilla

      Yes, but you won’t be able to stave off hoards of techno-ninjas. Choose wisely.

      • El Big CHRIS

    • Harbo99

  • Andrew Wegand

    Everytime I refresh DL i’m hoping for the headline of the next blog to be “Nexus 7’s shipping today!”

    • Bob Martin

      Or how about “Amazon giving away Nexus 7 to the first 300 people that order one”? would you like that headline better even if it meant waiting until September?

      • michael arazan

        Will amazon sell the nexus 7 since its basically directly competing against the kindle>?

    • Same, the wait is painful

    • yep been doing it all day
