Samsung building hype through eBay

I got an email from eBay promoting that it was selling 500 Samsung Galaxy tablets at a discount. It was an interesting tactic probably being used as part of a wider campaign to try and get a critical mass of tablets out there and hopefully build a bit of buzz in the face of Apple’s iPad.

At the end of the day, it’s just a pretender. Just in the same way that nothing can make up for having the wrong brand of shoes in the playground; the Galaxy is no iPad.
