Get Something Built

All project work goes through Katapult Media. Business is open. Let’s chat.

They absolutely have to be laughing at Samsung’s marketing arm and their decision to give a phone 7 words within the name. I just wonder how hard the execs laughed when they heard the name. The specs probably made them take pause but the name is for the birds! At some point, manufacturers will learn simplicity in naming helps consumer purchase decisions.

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch

Beyond such a terrible name for the S II, it is a Sprint only name! AT&T is just the Galaxy S II. I think they shouldn’t change the device per carrier. There should be one cohesive name for every carrier [ ex – iPhone, regardless of AT&T or Verizon] and the same specs per carrier. Slight changes to hardware [antenna, etc] are expected but device size, etc should not change.

With that said…I do want one. 😀
