Big B has a new toy to play with and he is still figuring out how to use it. This new phone joins the ranks of iPhone and Blackberry, which Amitabh Bachchan already has. Big B’s newest phone is Samsung Galaxy S3. As tweeted by Sr. Bachchan, he is not a brand ambassador but just a fan. How nice is that.
Just to put things in perspective, Amitabh Bachchan has joined Facebook, tweeted about it and garnered 8.5 lakh fans in a matter of hours. Such is the popularity of the man. So what does this little endorsement do to Samsung Galaxy S3?
A footfall is an expectation. But who wants to buy the phone would buy it anyway. Those who are still undecided and waiting for the next iPhone would probably be tempted to buy. Those who adore Big B and also happen to have money will buy it right away.
Amitabh Bachchan joins the small but growing list of celebrities using an Android phone. This is probably the biggest testament to Android because, stars as busy as they are, don’t have much time to twiddle with Android’s idiosyncrasies. Once you have them on-board, you know you have arrived. No matter what them fruit companies are thinking.
