In the dreamworld of a Super Bowl commercial, the Samsung Galaxy Note isn’t just a hot new phone — it’s pure gadget ambrosia, inspiring legions of everyday people to abandon their iPhones for the Note’s extra-large screen, speedy 4G LTE connection and “awesome” stylus.
It’s fantasy, of course, but does it even have a kernel of truth? We checked out the Galaxy Note earlier this week, yet somehow we weren’t moved to scream from the rooftops how it changed our lives. But that could be just us. We decided to take to the streets of Manhattan to give the Samsung Galaxy Note a chance to recreate its Super Bowl glory.
Could the Note melt through the built-in skepticism of New Yorkers and persuade them to smile, cheer and perhaps break into song? Or would it provoke feelings of confusion or even disgust at its massive size and retro stylus? The video above reveals all.
If, after watching, you want to try out the Samsung Galaxy Note for yourself, just head over to your nearest AT&T store. The Note goes on sale today for the tidy sum of $299 with a two-year contract. Hey, the biggest smartphone ever — with an incredibly fast mobile Internet connection — doesn’t come cheap. At least they throw in a stylus for free.
