Samsung Canada will be spending some big bucks this coming weekend to show their first ever Super Bowl ad. Taking centre stage in the big game will be the Galaxy Note – a phone/tablet that will be widely available on February 14th via TELUS, Rogers and Bell. A press release just went out that gave a bit of insight into what we can expect. First, it’s a 90-second spot which “Samsung handpicked Bobby Farrelly to direct his first ever TV commercial”. Farrelly help create such flicks as There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber and Kingpin. The Note has some impressive specs, but what will be really interesting to see is the video quality of the commercial. Apparently “part of the commercial was shot using the Galaxy Note’s HD-quality video camera”… no other details of how much of the ad was shot using the Note, just “a part”. The Note has an 8MP camera that shoots 1080p HD videos at 30fps.

    It might be just me, but because I’ve been using the Galaxy Note since November, I’m not THAT excited about this release. Although the commercial should bring the mainstream isheep’s attention away from Apple.

    I want to see Galaxy SIII And Galaxy Tab 11.6 😀

    I ordered my Note 2 months ago from the UK and have been using it on Rogers ever since… Honestly, this is the ultimate smart phone… I had a GS2 before this and after 48 hours the phone feels like the perfect size… My wife just traded in her I4 for a Nexus after seeing Android in action!!

    Who cares? Its too big to be a phone, and too small to be a phone.

  • whocares

    **tablet is what was meant lmao.

  • c

    because its a multimedia device with full gsm capabilities? no need to pinch to zoom to read text on fully formatted websites?
    nice camera
    nice processor[eu version at least]

    there’s a lot to care about if it suits you, and if you don’t care.. well who cares about what you care about.

    Never again Samsung. Watch them stop updating the phone in a year like they did with the galaxy. It’s Google next time.
