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.

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.

We have to say the specially designed back cover looks pretty smashing, as it’s adorned with neat drawings of London’s many landmarks, such as the Big Ben, the red telephone box, the newly constructed The Shard, and others. The special Olympics Flip Cover for the Galaxy S3 is your best bet to score some local memorabilia and celebrate the fine men and women who are competing for glory.

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 [...]
