It is being announced by Samsung that they will have something “huge” to announce during the Super Bowl XLVI. The giant Korean electronics company could actually literally mean huge, since the size of this newer device is huge, with hopes of the reception of this device to be huge. Huge is undefined by them for that commercial so far, but the announcement will be confirmed as being the just-recently announced Galaxy Note by AT&T that is going to be advertised during the big game on Sunday.
On the official Google+ page, it was revealed by Samsung Mobile that the company will be running their own first ever Super Bowl advertisement. And Samsung is going to be out trying to impress everyone with the new 90-second advertisement, being the longest commercial to be airing during the Super Bowl XLVI. And also considering that the 30-second ad is costing $3.5 million, it is very safe to say that this will be coming out as an expensive advertisement from Samsung, for the Galaxy Note. (on a side note, the ad rates for the Super Bowl for slightly longer advertisements usually don’t charge for the full amount because the networks typically do not charge the full rates when a company buys alot of time in a broadcast. Check out AdWeek for more info.)
It’s very suprising to hear that Samsung would be making such a hard push into the advertisement venue just for the Galaxy Note. While this device is obviously very interesting and very sure to be pleasing, though who would of ever thought Samsung would have seen potential in the U.S. in spending what may just be more than $10 million in just less than two minutes. But on the other hand, the firm has just plenty of gold to spend in promoting their Android hardware, and you could never get just as much eye balls attached to the TV set in the U.S. as it will be happening this coming Sunday.
There is no details yet on which direction the advertisement will be taking, though we can only hope and pray that Samsung hired some good commercial pros as the last commercials from the last Superbowl last year for the Sony Xperia and the Motorola Xoom were crap.
But keep an eye out for the ad. If your not into the Superbowl like me, then just keep an eye out on Youtube for the advertisement by just searching for the terms “Samsung Galaxy Note Superbowl”, on Sunday night or something.
With me being a Galaxy S owner, and there already been numerous models of the Galaxy being released, I don’t especially want to get this one just to extend my contract another 3 years. I will just buy an iPad used on Ebay and not extend any kind of contract. Afterall, it seems that Samsung is trying to put their foot into the tablet market with a smartphone that has a huge screen.
