So the jig is up. Samsung is trying to win over consumers’ hearts by becoming the “South Korean Apple” (Korean Pears are amazing, by the way). So how exactly is Samsung going to accomplish this? Well, besides their recent ad blitz poking fun at iPhone users and lets not forget — they’re amazing handsets that seem to be winning the world over — Samsung will begin offering custom engraving free to anyone who purchases a Galaxy Note. The only catch is the service will only be available until March 31st and you have to live in South Korea to take them up on their offer.
But let’s take another look at this offer. What other big named company has offered engraving on their devices — Oh, yes. That’s right — Apple. Seems Samsung is suffering from a serious Apple complex but it’s pretty easy to see why. Apple is sitting on a surplus pile of money worth approximately $97.6 billion. That’s enough to make any conglomerate drool.
Back to engraving, I think it would actually be pretty awesome for more companies (besides Apple) to begin permanently offering laser etching like this. Typically, we as Android users love our customization and I wouldn’t mind customizing my next device with a huge Android mascot. What you get on yours?
