James Franco promotes Galaxy Note 10.1
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has James Franco as its celebrity face
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is now available on retail shelves and the company has hired a celebrity face to promote the multitasking-friendly tablet. Will the endorsement of actor James Franco be enough to propel this device past the iPad?
I'm not quite sure this will have a material impact on the sales success of the Galaxy Note 10.1, but I think this is a really fun commercial. It's a weird, long video that's probably only meant for the Web but I'm sure you'll see elements of the video below on your big-screen television in the not-too-distant future.
I think James Franco is the perfect celebrity for this type of product because he truly is a crazy multitasker: actor, writer, artist, etc. The most promising aspect of the Galaxy Note 10.1 to me is the ability to simultaneously run apps side by side. Samsung showed this capability on the Galaxy S3 but I think the large screen space on the Note 10.1 makes this much more valuable.
Like the Galaxy Note, the Note 10.1 will be compatible with the S Pen and this isn't just a stylus, this is a pressure-sensitive digitizer that will let you write in various ways. It will be able to figure out how hard you're pressing on the screen and adjust your inputs accordingly.
Any of you going to get the Galaxy Note 10.1? Does the video below change your mind?
