Have you ever unboxed a smartphone whilst jumping out of a plane?

I can’t say I have, and after watching these videos – I can’t say I’d want to!
The Samsung Galaxy S 2 is scheduled to launch on May 1st 2011, and after the success of their Galaxy S launch last year, Samsung wanted to do something different. They wanted to take the internet craze of ‘unboxing’ videos, and turn it on its head, and that’s exactly what they did.
They reached out to six bloggers, and gave them the opportunity to get their hands on the device, before its public release – but they got a little bit more than they bargained for. There was speed boating, sky diving, mountain climbing, rally car driving, roller coaster riding and stunt flying...
Six different bloggers... six different locations...
This is extreme unboxing.
