    Here's a morning funny-bone tickle from Samsung. The above is a pretty funny commercial for the Samsung Galaxy SII, that not-too-subtly pokes fun at the iPhone. It very eloquently points out how silly it is to wait for a device with specs that are about a year behind what Android already has. What's further interesting is that this commercial appears to be legitimate, yet has not been officially released or endorsed by Samsung. Wherever it comes from, it is worth a quick minute of your time.

    "I could never get a Samsung. I'm artistic."

    "Dude, you're a Barista!"

    The new Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket is a 4G version of the phone, also, in countries other than the U.S. they already released a 4G version of it.

    Good commercial...Besides being funny, it's fairly effective showing the phones side-by-side and also emphasizing 4G (admittedly I'm not sure that point comes across all that well to people who don't know what it is).

    One of the sites reporting the story noted an astute observation along the lines of "while impressed, no one gets out of line for the IPhone"

    I wasn't aware. That makes the phone actually appealing to me now. I'll still wait for the GN though :D
