Samsung SuperSwypers: the fastest journalists on earth (for free)
New service SuperSwypers gives you a personal journalist for events you can't attend
19 AUGUSTUS 2010, AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS
SamenvattingThere’s a huge number of events in the summer: concerts, festivals... and then of course there’s also your grandmother’s birthday. For all those people who are away on holiday, or have other commitments clashing with their favourite events, Samsung Mobile is introducing the SuperSwypers service. A SuperSwyper is a roving personal reporter that can be sent anywhere to do blow-by-blow reporting for you. SuperSwypers are quick because they use Swype, the fastest way to input text on touchscreens.
Samsung Mobile introduces the SuperSwypers service to promote its superfast Swype system, the new input method for touchscreen devices. Swype enables inputting words in one flowing motion across the screen, allowing 50% faster word processing. Swype will first be available on the Samsung Galaxy S; the device all SuperSwypers will be using to do their reporting. All photos and videos that the SuperSwypers are going to distribute will also be taken with the Samsung Galaxy S.
Location based services and social media
Through a unique partnership with feest.je (a social network allowing you to indicate where you are, like Foursquare) participants are able to follow their SuperSwypers’ whereabouts live at all times where they check in to write their SwypeStory, via the website, and on feest.je. Apart from feest.je, the SuperSwypers will also be using Foursquare, Mobypicture (for photos and videos) and Twitter to do their reporting. On the Facebook page, events are created for all SuperSwyper reporting assignments. So even your grandmother’s birthday can become a Facebook event. If you happen to check in on a spot where there is a SuperSwyper, you get the special SuperSwyper feest.je badge. The SuperSwyper starts every SwypeStory with a personal video for the one who isn't able to attend the event. Then the SuperSwyper reports on everything that he sees, smells, hears and feels on the event. During the event he makes video's and photo's. Samsung finishes the services by making a personal PDF (using Issuu) with the complete SwypeStory.
Spot the SuperSwyper
There will be several occasions in August in which the SuperSwyper, recognisable by their SuperSwyper outfit, will be the centre of attention. If you are the first to see him or her at that event, and say the predefined codeword to them, you will immediately receive a Samsung Galaxy S. The codeword will be transmitted through feest.je, Foursquare, Twitter, the SuperSwypers website, and on the event itself.
EXTRA SERVICE FOR THE EDITOR
Journalists, too, are often much too busy. One cannot be in two places at once. Whether you’re feeling like a quiet evening, not wanting to miss an aunt’s birthday, or if you would like a SuperSwyper to just simply do your job for you, send one on their way through www.superswypers.nl.
SuperSwypers can be dispatched until the 31st of August, 2010, through www.superswypers.nl
