YouTube video: Samsung Omnia Unboxing

September 2, 2008

YouTubers’ comments:

“I like the fact that it looks like every other regular unboxing video on YouTube. It wouldn’t be the same if this looked like a commercial. Excellent work.”

“I want to buy the phone just for the unboxing show!
So cool, amazing technology right there. Must be really expensive to package your product like that.
They should put a warning on the box about the pyrotechnics though.”

“I love the ‘viral’ videos that companies are trying to make for themselves. Its just free advertising for them in the long run and it gets the hype going.”


Samsung SC-MX20: camcorder designed for YouTube

September 2, 2008

The Samsung SC-MX20 looks in the first part as if it will be a good little camcorder, and it is the YouTube video site mode that Samsung hope will help the sales of the device.
The SC-MX20 records video at 720×480 and is able to record in an optimized YouTube mode. Basically, it records at a native YouTube resolution and FPS, so nothing is “lost” when you upload the video. That’s useful for, well, people like us, grabbing quick video clips of odds and ends and then uploading them from the floor of an airport or something.
Well a price tag of just $280 tells that the Samsung SC-MX20 is more than cheap enough for the uTube fans to own one of these camcorders.
