While many websites are debating whether Samsung Mobile knowingly used the same little girl in their commercial for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, that appeared in the iPhone 4S ads, we doubt for a second there was any confusion. After seeing Samsung’s aggressive “Next Big Thing” TV spots we know that they have a flair for pushing the envelope as far as they can in their marketing while battling Apple in court on patents.
The little girl seen in both videos is an unknown child actress, but as TFTS, The Sydney Morning Herald and Cult of Mac suggest it’s definitely the same girl. The Sydney Morning Herald is calling her “Little Miss Tablet”.
The iPhone 4S ad shows the little girl highlighting the camera features of Apple’s newest iPhone. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 commercial shows the girl running around with her dad playing with the Galaxy tab 8.9 4G/LTE and then ducking under a blanket watching a movie.
