Biggest product placement ever? Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note star in the Olympic opening ceremony

by: Bogdan PetrovanJuly 28, 2012

Last night’s Olympic Games opening ceremony was nothing less than dazzling. I was only able to watch parts of it, but from what I’ve seen and from the few videos that surfaced the web today, I can say it was the most spectacular opening that I have ever witnessed.

Apparently, among the moments I missed there was a product placement artistic moment prominently featuring one of Samsung’s flagship devices, the Galaxy Note. According to a video released by Samsung this morning, 100 such devices were used during the opening ceremony.

The “behind the scenes” video shows Martin Green, Head of Ceremonies for the London Olympic Games using a Galaxy S3 and a Note to work. [...]

Samsung unveils limited edition Team GB Galaxy S3 phones, to start selling on August 1

by: AdrianJuly 27, 2012

Right as we fervently waited for the official kick off of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, Samsung made our day even brighter by unveiling two special edition Galaxy S3 phones. These will be available for sale in the UK soon and target British tech users who want to show their support for their Olympian heroes.

The Games’ grand opening ceremony might start in just a few hours, but the Olympic fever won’t be easily quenchable across England for the next 17 days. That’s why, even if the two limited edition Galaxy S3 models won’t actually start selling until August 1, they should still prove fairly successful all around Great Britain.

Quick look: Samsung Hope Relay – Give to charity by going for a run

by: SamMay 31, 2012

In the spirit of the Olympic Games, Samsung has created the Samsung Hope Relay charity, which lets Samsung users contribute to good causes, and maintain their physical shape at the same time. How does it work? For every mile that you run with the associated app running on your device in your pocket, Samsung will donate £1 to a good cause.

How does it work?

It’s exactly as you would expect, really. Once you have put your name and town into the app (and taken a goofy picture of yourself) you can start and stop your “runs”. Each time you go for a run, the GPS keeps track of the distance you’ve covered and lets you know how much money you’ve raised [...]
