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


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.

  • 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.

  • HATE that whistle notification

      • El Big CHRIS

        you’re not alone 🙂

    • 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
