  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:03:40 PM
    Samsung served up some pre-show "beverages." I think I should have had one.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:03:42 PM
    Yep, as expected, this show is starting late. Hang on, folks.

    I wish we had like buttons in this live blog. Because I LIKE that pic Sarah just took below.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:05:38 PM
    Now that's a man on top of his tech game.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:06:08 PM
    The announcer is back up to say the show will start in a few moments. Sure...

  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:07:22 PM
    Wow, the second balcony level is filling up too.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:08:13 PM
    Yeah, there's been so many leaks for this product we probably won't be surprised.

    The lights have dimmed down. Here we go!
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/14/2013 11:10:41 PM
    Of course they're starting with the Jeremy video...
  • Steven.Musil 3/14/2013 11:10:43 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:10:51 PM
    Who is Jeremy??
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:11:00 PM
    The commercial continues with Jeremy and his "Unpacked" box.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:11:04 PM
    And the weird teaser with Jeremy plays.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:11:05 PM
    A booming countdown begins.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:11:16 PM
    What was that video all about??
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:11:44 PM
    Jeremy Max and MC Will Chase rise from the stage to tepid applause.
  • sarahtew 3/14/2013 11:11:45 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:11:49 PM
    Yep, Jeremy is here in person. And he refuses to open the box.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:12:09 PM
    Will Chase is a somewhat recognizable celebrity? I don't know.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/14/2013 11:12:42 PM
    I have to wonder if all the people freezing their bums off in Times Square are there of their own volition or plants. I know, I know. Cynical.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:12:43 PM
    Chase is making small talk and cracking some jokes. No one is laughing.
  • John Falcone 3/14/2013 11:13:06 PM
    [Samsung is simulcasting this event to Times Square]
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:13:10 PM
    Now for the head of mobile for Samsung, JK Shin. The curtains raise for the big man.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:13:19 PM
    Officially, he's the head of IT and mobile communications.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/14/2013 11:13:19 PM
    Roger, nobody is laughing because we're all press. We don't laugh. We just type ; )
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:13:32 PM
    He says good evening to some slightly more enthusiastic applause.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:13:55 PM
    Shin references all the rumors and speculations around this phone.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:14:07 PM
    "We are committed to innovation. We are always listening to people around the world to hear what they really want."
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:14:46 PM
    "We have taken technology and innovation forward to get closer to what matters in life," he says.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:14:50 PM
    It's live a richer, simpler life. Lots of slick marketing jargon going on here.
  • sarahtew 3/14/2013 11:14:52 PM
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:15:10 PM
    Dual camera, sound & shot, are some features hinted at.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:15:27 PM
    Samsung smart scroll and smart pause mentioned.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:15:46 PM
    Now for gesture controls with Air View.

  • Jessica Dolcourt 3/14/2013 11:16:09 PM
    I think it's interesting that Samsung is basically unveiling all the new features during this intro speech.
  • Roger Cheng 3/14/2013 11:16:13 PM
    That's the world we imagine, Shin says.
