Who is Darth Vader ?

Darth Vader says: Luke, I am your ... Samsung Galaxy S !

Continuing a Star Wars television ad campaign that it began last Summer, NTT DoCoMo is trying to bring the Samsung Galaxy S on the first place in Japanese sales charts. The carrier's Android powered Samsung Galaxy S is second (first being the iPhone 4 of course).
In the video, Darth Vader plays the role of the Samsung Galaxy S and shows the viewer some of the everyday things that can be realized with the help of Darth, arrr I mean, the Android handset.


The Apple iPhone has two-thirds of the smartphone market in Japan, it has been able to overcome the area's tradition to buy handsets from domestic manufacturers (Sharp, Panasonic).
Samsung Galaxy S faces the same challenge with its model, but also to overthrow the iPhone from its first position

It seems that the Korean company is turning on the powers of the dark side.

Do you guys think Darth Vader will be able to help the Samsung Galaxy S overcome the iPhone ? Or not even the the powers of the dark side will matter against the mighty iPhone ?

I don't understand how the iPhone is still so popular. The thing is a piece of overpriced junk.
