I’m quite comfortable with my sexuality, but this story has really made me think twice about getting a Samsung Galaxy Note.
According to Andrew Glass, Sammie’s UK Sales Director, the Samsung Galaxy Note – easily the most talked about device at this year’s IFA in Berlin – will be aimed at chicks. What the f…?
“The Galaxy Note is really good for the female market,” reckons Glass, who describes the device as “a merger between smartphones and tablets.”
He suggests: “To have a handbag and be able to put a 5.37-inch phone in instead of a 10.1-inch tablet is something that I think will capture the female market.”
And it doesn’t end there. Andy adds: “We will be looking at special propositions for the female consumer. There are different colour waves, thoughts and propositions that we hope to unveil later this month.”
Hmm, we’re not convinced that’s such a good idea, Andy. HTC recently appeared to abandon plans to make the HTC Rhyme (nee Bliss) a phone for ladies. You know what they're like; they reeeaaally don't like to be patronised.
In any case, the Samsung Galaxy Note will land in the UK on November 17 with a price tag of £550ish.
