Samsung Does it Again, Ridicules the Whole Apple Fanboy Phenomenon with Hysterical Ad

Just a few weeks back, Samsung debuted its new campaign, which apparently sees Apple fanboys as its primary target. The first ad, which you can see here, was pretty spot on.

Now comes ad number two and it does not disappoint.

On a slightly more serious note, what this ad is really saying between the lines is that the differences between mobile platforms are seriously blurring. If you had asked me last year to compare iOS and Android in terms of user experience, there really would have been no comparison with iOS taking the clear crown.

Today with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and the new Windows Phone 7.5 OS, there really is no clear winner and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. iOS might still be the cleanest of the bunch, but Android is catching  up fast and if you are willing to give up on a little esthetics for the ability to fully customize your phone with widgets and themes, then Android might be for you.

I have been using Windows Phone for the past week and let me tell you, you can forget anything you think you know about Microsoft and its design abilities, this OS is beautiful. With 40,000 available apps, Microsoft has some work cut out for this platform, but again, the gaps are closing and the lines are blurring.

Here is the bottom line. Does it make sense for someone to stay up all night for an iPhone launch just because you can have all your music, videos, photos etc etc on the device? Or because you have a superior Web experience on the iPhone? Nope, not anymore.

Of course there are still die hard Apple fans who will stay up all night for a new Apple product irrelevant of the product itself, that is not going to change, but unlike the music player space, in which the iPod was and remained the clear winner, when it comes to mobile, times are changing fast.
