Earlier this week, a number of protesters gathered in front of Apple Store in Sydney and starting chanting ‘Wake Up.’ It was quite surprising since the protesters didn’t really seem ‘concerned environmentalists’ or activists, just a bunch of paid fellows. It was speculated that perhaps Samsung has paid these people to pitch up a protest against its rival.
As was pointed out in a post earlier, a lot of signs indicate that the protest was supported by Samsung since the ‘Wake Up’ campaign seems to be waiting its promised messiah by counting down for Samsung’s Galaxy S III smartphone.
Moreover, Samsung has been working with an Australian ad agency, New Dialogue, which is now called ‘Tongue.’ It is known nearly for sure now that the company behind these protests was Tongue. However, Samsung has now come out in the clear and tried to distance itself from the incident stating that it had nothing to do with it. According to a statement from Samsung, ‘Samsung Electronics Australia has nothing to do with the ‘Wake-Up Campaign.’
Meanwhile, Samsung seems focused on its upcoming flagship Galaxy release. Coming with a quad-core processor, the phone has already pricked the interests of many and smartphone users are eagerly waiting for its launch.
