Samsung officially introduces the AT&T Galaxy Note in Super Bowl ad

GalaxyNote

Just as promised, Samsung has released its 90 second Galaxy Note ad during the Super Bowl. Following in the lines of its previous ads for the Galaxy S II (with a bit of a twist), this Galaxy Note ad pokes fun at iPhone users waiting in the long lines Apple loves to see outside its stores and shows them what “freedom” feels like. We think.

We already got a chance to play with the Galaxy Note at CES this past January and while the idea of a 5.3 inch phone sounds a bit ridiculous, we were surprised to see just how pocketable the handset is. That said, despite its thin profile and stunning Super AMOLED HD display, it just might be too much phone for some people.

AT&T-bound and up for pre-order starting today, the Galaxy Note is proof that a device this large can be popular. We’re sure Dell is feeling a little silly right now, as Samsung has shown the company what the Streak 5 could have been.

The Galaxy Note is essentially a larger Galaxy Nexus with TouchWiz  (and LTE) but it Samsung has also introduced the S Pen with the US variant of the Phoneblet. While we question if stylus-pens will catch on, as it seems ancient these days, the S Pen has some pretty nifty features when paired with the Note. We’ve seen similar implementations from HTC with its Flyer tablet, which failed to impress. But at this point in Android land, if anyone could make a stylus somewhat popular, it would have to be Samsung.

While we do like the way Samsung pokes at the Apple fans of the world with its ad-campaign, we would have preferred a brand new ad instead of something recycled. Nonetheless, we’ll have to see if the commercial was effective when the handset lands on the 19th. Already sold? Head over to AT&T’s site to secure your Galaxy Note now.

What do you think of the ad? Effective or “over the top”?

    I actually really want one of those, except… AT&T. And when I checked it out a month ago, it seemed far better than the Galaxy Nexus in terms of battery life and processor speed.

    But the ad was not superbowl-worthy.

    The only thing Samsung is good for is keeping my food cold. they’re customer service also sucks terribly. before i got a galaxy SII they told me i could upgrade my software, after i got it a couple months ago i called them and was told i can’t. they hate us and they’re greedy. thats why i got the iPhone, apple has been well to me, got water damage on the 4S, brought it in, the deductible didn’t go through so instead of trying to figure out why it didn’t charge me 50 bucks, they let me walk out with a new one, no questions asked. Heres a repeat customer. Samsung, you’re not on my list for even appliances. shame you.
