Samsung's got a great formula for engaging folks on the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Samsung already knows how to draw a crowd to the Samsung Galaxy Note, an unusually large smartphone for AT&T with a 5.3-inch screen and a stylus for writing and sketching. At shopping malls, conferences, and popular plazas around the world, hired caricature artists donning red berets sketch the likeness of passersby and then offer to print the resulting image on to a t-shirt.
It's a fun idea that works, judging by the lines of conference-goers at Samsung's indoor booth and outdoor venue at Mobile World Congress, and by the independent Samsung Studio erected for the week in Barcelona's humming Placa Catalunya.
At South by Southwest (SXSW) this week in Austin, Texas, Samsung plans to show off the Galaxy Note throughout the Austin Museum of Art, particularly at two events there.
Samsung is also teasing "an exciting special announcement" they'll make on Friday, March 9 at 4:00pm CT in the Samsung Blogger Lounge.
