When you seek out a spokesperson, you usually want someone who's enthusiastic about your product. By that measure, Samsung struck out with British pop star Robbie Williams, who -- along with his Take That bandmates -- awkwardly held Galaxy Tabs during a tour announcement last fall.

"We like technology," Williams stammered amid laughs when reporters asked about the band's tablets. "Samsung is great. And we’ve always done it. It is the best ones. And they love us. And it’s important that we do singing, and then put these with us."

Well, that certainly makes me want to run out and buy one. How 'bout you?
