Smartphone YouTube Advertisements Campaign in Year 2011

Smartphone YouTube Advertisements Here at CallingAllGeeks, we have covered some awesome innovations in smartphone technology. While technology in the smart-phones took a great leap forward, the advertisers weren’t far behind. Today’s post takes a look at some of the top Smartphone YouTube Advertisements campaigns of 2011. Some “smart” , some funny and some just plain bonkers.

As it is social media campaigns are getting popular among smart phone companies. Every big companies like Nokia, Samsung, Micromax comes with seperate budget for social media campaign, including blogger outreach. Companies, have started sending exclusive review devices to Bloggers and journalist to play and come up with review. This all comes in the social media marketing campaign of any company. Specially, in this process, World largest video channel “Youtube” plays the major role.

Most of the official video commercial and advertisements done is uploaded on Youtube, as it makes it more reachable and bloggers and other online media can share and embed those videos easily. Though, this is the technical side but to make a kick-ass campaign, first requirement is creating a video advertisement, which actually make it sharable and people will talk about it. For example, Airtel campaign on “Har ek friend Zaroori hota hai” or Epic Vodafone “Zoozoos‘”.

Here we will look into some of the Youtube advertisements and campaign run by these smartphone companies in the year 2011, and I would love to get your reaction on, which is the best advertisement according to you.

Quick look at Smartphone YouTube Advertisements

Samsung Galaxy Note-Feel Free

The Samsung Galaxy Note is a power packed superhero among smart-phones and this is amply proved in its advertisement. The beautiful panoramic view of the hills and rivers and beaches beautifully orchestrated into the 5.3” screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note is scintillating. The subsequent jugglery with the images and creation of the new idea is not just engaging but also shows the viewer the sheer potential of the device.

Made for dreamers by dreamers, Samsung Galaxy Note may just replace most of the enterprise smart-phones out there. You may feel free to explore the immense opportunities the phablet provides.

Samsung Galaxy Y-Change to smart

Smart, peppy, and can’t take nonsense,thats the youth of India today. They are go- getters and people who are resourceful and require things as fast as possible. The Samsung Galaxy Y has come out with the perfect advertisement to target this burgeoning class of youngsters in India aspiring for the best in the world, at the most affordable price.

The Ads feature two funny premises of an angry boss and a lost business man. The young go-getters who own Samsung Galaxy Y show us that the “Uncles” and “Chiefs” of the world are getting fast outdated. Enter the new “Smart” and young India of android and smart Phone users.

Samsung takes on the Uncles

Samsung mocks the Chiefs

Nokia Lumia 800– Amazing Everyday

Targeted at the social networking users, The Amazing Everyday campaign is both delightful and engaging. With a peppy background score and brilliant visuals, the ad represents everything Nokia Lumia 800 is about; Getting connected, admiring the small things in life, and telling everyone about it. The visuals of the Ad seem just a great metaphor to the exciting and engaging look of the Windows Mango OS, on the exquisitely designed Nokia Lumia 800.

Samsung Galaxy S2– greatest smart-phone

Samsung Galaxy S2 has been a game changer both for Samsung and Android phones around the world. Packed with specifications that rival the Apple iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S2’s ad shows just what your Android Galaxy could be like. Incredible special effects in the ad makes this perhaps the best smart-phone ad in terms of aspirational value. Targeted at not just enterprise users but also the youngsters, the advertisement portrays the multiple needs of a smart-phone customer, Music, Movie, Internet, Games and Work all packed into one powerful package. Truly, Samsung Galaxy S2 is the greatest smart-phone out there.

HTC Explorer– Fingers do the talk

HTC’s shy entry into the Indian smart-phone market has been made with great wit and ingenuity. Targeted at the youth, the Fingers do the talk campaign is focused on exploring the one touch feature of the android enabled HTC explorer . While the Television Ads focus on the efforts of a young boy wooing his sweetheart, the print ad campaigns show the full range of uses of HTC explorer.

Blackberry-Welcome to the family

Welcome to the Blackberry family focuses on the Blackberry messenger feature and the fact that if you want to “belong” to a family you are probably looking for the Blackberry clan of PIN holders and Push messengers.

Karbonn A1– Ahem!!

Karbonn A1 was made for all the aspirants and the dreamers who wish to hold a sleek Smart-phone with all the fancy applications the more luxurious buyers are used to. The ad, perhaps one of the smartest pick at (clears throat) iPhone,sends a clear message: you needn’t miss out on the Smart-phone bandwagon anymore. While I may consider Karbonn to be extremely brave to take on a giant(ala David Vs Goliath), we are not entirely convinced that the Ad would do much to convince anyone Karbonn is even remotely as good as an iPhone. Buy a Karbonn A1 if thats all you can afford.

Summary

The year 2011 was most exciting for Ad makers and smart-phone enthusiasts alike. While it was clearly a year of aggressive marketing by Samsung with its plethora of “smart” options for its users, the other players too came out with exciting and interesting way to show their presence. Nokia’s saving grace was its Lumia both in the ad word as well as its real world presence. 2012 presents itself with more opportunities for companies, everyone has a role to play especially the ones that missed the plot in 2011.

YouTube Gets Some Really Cool Editing Tools and Features

You enjoy uploading videos? Specially on to your YouTube page, but are somehow not satisfied with the features provided with the up-loader? Well, worry not, because you will hereby be treated with some really cool options that will let you turn your boring 2D video to 3D and much more. YouTube has introduced lots of new features that lets you convert 2D videos to 3D ones with just a click, upload videos that are 15 mins and longer and add effects using Vlix and Magisto.

The 2D to 3D conversion isn’t that awesome, but it’s better than trying to record using two cameras and then blending them together. 3D glasses will be required on most displays, unless you own a 3D display already. Also, this is only if you really want to see what 3D looks like. Edit your videos/convert them to 3D using Edit Info.

The second feature is the ability to upload videos that are longer than 15 mins. Until now, the cap was up to 15 mins for a single video, but now that’s all gone. However, you’ll need to have a verified YouTube account to be able to be eligible.

YouTubers are some of the most innovative, entertaining and inspirational people in the world, and their creativity often needs more than the current upload limit of 15 minutes.

Longer videos are bigger in size too, and that will take longer to upload. Imagine you’re uploading a 300MB video and then the net just disconnects!! Normally you’d swear really loudly, but now you can continue the upload once the internet is back. Pretty cool right?

Last, but not the least, you can edit your videos using two new third party editors by visiting youtube.com/create. Using these tools, Vlix and Magisto, you can add effects, text, crop, cut your clips into short-clips and more.

That’s about it for the moment. You can check out all the new features the next time you plan on uploading that embarrassing video of your friend. What do you think of new features?

Yahoo’s MoviePlex Intends to Challenge YouTube Box-Office

YouTube introduced the Box Office some time back, which lets you stream free Bollywood movies. Although there aren’t many new ones that you can stream, but at least there are some. The service attracted a huge audience from India, since it’s tough to come by free bollywood movies online. Now, Yahoo wants to get in the game and challenge YouTube with their introduction of MoviePlex.

Yahoo MoviePlex is similar to YouTube Box Office and streams free Bollywood movies in India. This is started by Yahoo India, so it’s definitely going to be bigger than YouTube, since they don’t have many licences that’ll help them stream lots of content. At the moment, there aren’t many movies uploaded that you can watch, but soon enough there will be pages of them. The idea of watching a movie by streaming is pretty awesome, since there aren’t many legit sites that do so. Specially for the people in India, this is going to be something.

There is a question however. Is a normal broadband connection adequate to stream these movies? Well, as far as the quality of the movie is concerned, I found YouTube to be better. In terms of newer titles, Yahoo emerged as a winner.YouTube, even though it has lots of titles, most of them are pretty old movies.

Only time will tell which service is going to be used more and it all depends on what movies and how many movies are added to the list. It’s not clear how Yahoo will make a profit from this, because if they don’t the service may have to be shut down. It’s certainly going to take some time, since broadband speeds in India is only catching up with the world and a huge part of the population still hasn’t got broadband.

You can visit Yahoo MoviePlex and start watching some movies right away.

What do you think of this new service? Do you like to stream and watch movies online?
