It doesn't take a genius, or doesn't it?

Samsung's latest anti-Apple campaign seems to have backfired a tad. And I'm not referring to opheliac plastering the ad all over Mobot.
I'm referring to the "Desert Island" campaign over on a little forum called, I think, Facebook...

Hey, to be clear: the SGS3 is a great phone. It is rightly selling truckloads. But it doesn't take a genius that it just isn't everyone's cup of tea. I passed on it after a ten day trial, and not in favour of iOS. I happily returned to my N9.
They had to expect a flood of iPholks swarming in to hype the latest iPhone.

Yeah not the best of timing on their part, bet it got a mention on an iphone forum or maybe just those sat in queues with nothing else to do..

Best answer was electric boat though, could be pushing the question a touch. :)

Jetski for me.

I'd take a Cylon centurion to fight my way out - what with all the iPhone/Android fans throwing coconuts at each other...

Satellite phone was another nice one.

Think I'd settle for a water purifier

Jetski for me.

they have terrible range though, unless they do solar ones now :)

They should make salt-water powered jetskis...

It does not really matter - only electronic device that may save you is satellite phone with GPS locator and only in good weather. Everything else will run out of battery quick. I think there is an assumption that there is no battery limit.

If there is a battery limit phone is absolutely useless thing to have. What good is the phone if there is no service. I think jetski would be much more fun on island than iPhone with no service.

Assuming you have service. It means that there is a tower near by, but it's not on the same island as you are as it's deserted. You can either call and ask for help or use jetski to get to civilization yourself.


Note: I never seen electric boat, not saying there is not one. Usually it's a regular paddle boat with electric motor. If you are allowed to take only one item motor without a boat is not very useful.

Good points CT!!
I revise: I'm taking a solar charger, and take £5 per pop from those iFans

Go with manual generator. Might be bad weather and no sun, but you can always pedal.

That'd be some freaky desert island...

You mean bunch of freaks with phones taking turns pedaling for the privilege of using them? Yeah, I want to see that too. :p

That's not electronic surely merely electrical so that can be a freebie?
