Samsung Introduces Brand Ambassadors for the 7-inch Galaxy Tab

MANILA, PHILIPPINES - Launched last September 2010, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3G has redefined the way people live on-the-go. A phone, laptop, and so much more, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3G was positioned as ‘all you will ever need on-the-go’. From enjoying over 100,000 FREE Android apps, viewing videos in full HD, to editing Powerpoint presentations and reading e-books, Samsung Galaxy Tab was the perfect device for work and play.

To bring the Tab technology closer to more consumers, another Tab model, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi, was launched earlier this year for a younger, more multi-media savvy user.

Consumer feedback though was overwhelming. More than being an all-in-one device, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3G and Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi was able to change the way the consumers lived their everyday lives. It was able to enhance their ordinary, everyday experiences, from the little things to the most complex tasks.

Such was the inspiration for the new Samsung Galaxy Tab campaign, “Life 2.0”. From taking you closer to your passion, or changing the way you nurture relationships, to keeping you on top of things that matter to you, both the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3G and the Samsung Galaxy Tab Wi-Fi enables consumers to do all these things a notch higher, better, more extraordinary.

The following ambassadors are a testament to how Samsung Galaxy Tab takes life to Life 2.0. Using their own Samsung Galaxy Tab, these leaders, from fashion to business, art to philanthropy, and more, have tapped into the power of Samsung Galaxy Tab technology to access knowledge, improve skill, and connect with peers or reach audiences much better and faster.

“I’m a gadget freak. Most of the time I need my watch, my footpad, and my music player. Wi-Fi is a must whether in the car or at home. I need to do a lot of things but I do not want to take time off the kids. Much as I am very active with my online life, I also want to enrich my ‘real’ life with family and friends.”

“I’m glad that technology has enabled us to spread the love for the arts, traditional or digital. Twenty years ago, the Philippine art scene was different and a painting was a luxury. The style of interiors has changed dramatically that, these days, a painting is like a fixture—if you have an accent piece, you need to have a painting to balance it.”

“I'm beginning to like the fact that I don't have to connect to any computer to use it for whatever purposes. The Galaxy Tab is a great stand alone machine to bring along with you, and is okay for numerous things. Android is interesting!”

“I’ve been chronicling travels in my own little space in the web, called The Dyslexia Chronicles since 2006. I see the tab as a dependable travel companion that gives a lighter and richer travel experience.”

“I like the Galaxy Tab's size, weight, and its sleek form factor. I may have to rethink the gadgets I currently bring when I travel or have to work on the go, like when I'm stuck in traffic or waiting around during shoots."

“The toughest part of my job, I think, is even when I’m in a concert I’d find someone screaming his idea on me. In as much as it is difficult because I have my moods and I need to rest, I also find it very edifying that they believe they can tell me—that they don’t think it’s useless for them to tell me.”
