Samsung “Unicorn Apocalypse” Advert Mocks Struggling Blackberry

samsung-blackberry-ad

In the latest oddball advert from Samsung intended to promote the Galaxy SIII and Note II the company has had a rather obvious dig at RIM’s ailing Blackberry.

Set in what is supposed to look like a trendy game development startup that is in the process of two major events – the fast-approaching launch of their biggest game ever “Unicorn Apocalypse” and a policy change that will allow employees to use whatever mobile device they like for work as opposed to the Blackberry that they were previously given to use.

The advert takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the results of such a mobile device switchover and the problems that it causes in the office. Those who are having trouble letting go of their Blackberry’s are clearly mocked by their colleagues. Continue Reading

Samsung Investors Guidance Figures Report Sales Of 500 Handsets Per Minute!

GALAXY-SIII

At the Q4 investors guidance, South Korean tech company Samsung reported some astronomically good sales figures. They claim to have sold 500 handsets per minute (working out to some 720,000 handsets sold each day) from October through to December of 2012. When the last quarter earnings report comes out later in the month, the company expects to announce making a whopping $8.3 billion.

These figures equate to incredible growth for the company, whose operating profit would have increased 89 % from this time just one year ago. The forecast marks the fifth-straight record quarterly profit!

Some experts believe that Samsung was able to stay ahead of main rivals Apple because they debuted 37 different handsets last year in comparison to Apple’s one iPhone. The 37 different Samsung phones ranged from high-end to low-end and were released in different regions dependent on what the demographic could afford and preferred. Continue Reading

Samsung Working On Flexible Screens For Smartphones & Other Devices

South Korean conglomerate Samsung have been working on flexible displays for smartphones and other devices that use plastic instead of glass to make their products lighter, more durable and bendable. This kind of technology is something that many similar companies like Sony for example have looked into over the years, however Samsung seem have progressed the fastest with it as the reports emerged that they are nearly ready to mass produce products that use this kind of flexible display.

Devices bearing this innovative type of flexible display were exhibited by Samsung last year, but an exact date for when the product will become commercially available has not yet been given.

A source familiar with the new type of display unit said that it was in the last phase of development and that consumers could expect to see products bearing this type of technology on the shelves in the first half of 2013 – but declined to comment on how much money Samsung have spent researching the technology.

Apple Vs Samsung: Apple Issue Super-Snide UK Acknowledgement Over Patent Infringement

The highly amusing sniping and griping that has been taking place between Samsung and Apple took another interesting twist after the UK courts found that Samsung did not infringe on Apple’s patents with the Galaxy Tablet.

Part of the ruling required Apple to issue an acknowledgement to the court’s findings on their website and they have done this, although it is hardly apologetic and we don’t think it is particularly what the courts were envisaging when they issued the order.

The notice that the courts ordered Apple to put on their website is intended to inform customers using the UK version of the company’s website that Samsung didn’t actually infringe on their patents. This is seen as a way of repairing the tarnishing of Samsung’s reputation that took place with the initial accusation. This kind of notice is often referred to as an “apology ad” however there really wasn’t anything apologetic about the notice that Apple put up!Continue Reading

Apple Fanboys Hit Back Against Samsung’s iPhone 5 Slur Ad

The plot thickens in the Apple vs Samsung smartphone wars as Apple fanboys have taken matters into their own hands with an interesting marketing vigilantism maneuver!

You may have seen the Samsung advert(above) which lists the pros of the Galaxy S3 against those of the iPhone 5 under the tagline “It doesn’t take a genius” offering comparisons of the two phones obviously set up to paint the Galaxy S3 in a much more favorable light than the iPhone 5. It also takes a swipe at the iPhone 5’s new charger, (a sore point for many Apple product lovers) by stating that the S3 uses Micro USB charging, as opposed to a ‘totally different plug.’Continue Reading
