Cat Deeley “launches” Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in UK

Samsung UK has shoved some money in the direction of lovely, wonky-nosed TV presenter Cat Deeley, to encourage her to recline seductively beside a swimming pool while holding one of the company’s new Android tablets.

She also seems to like reading traditional print media. Never before have we been so relieved to discover that there is a high-resolution image available:

Photography fans will be amazed to learn that this image was distributed as a 168MB TIF file. We’ve made this one a little smaller and converted it to a JPG to stop wasting so much internet.

Here’s a crop of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 part of the photo so this update seems a little more relevant. There’s also a press release. This is iconic stuff, apparently:


The perfect accessory for Cat’s London – LA lifestyle

8th August 2011, London, UK – Samsung today unveiled the re-creation of Terry O’Neil’s iconic ‘breakfast’ shot of actress Faye Dunaway over thirty years after it was taken. Working with Cat Deeley, Samsung has updated the classic shot in celebration of the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Terry O’Neil’s 73rd birthday. The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is super slim and light making it the perfect accessory for Cat as she travels between London and LA.

Taking inspiration from the look and feel of the classic image, Samsung brings the image up to date by replacing the multitude of newspapers with a single device, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The photo shows Cat with all the information she needs at her fingertips including newspapers, books, videos and websites.

“I love this photo so the chance to work with Samsung to re-create it was really exciting. The new Samsung Galaxy Tab is the perfect accessory for me as I spend a lot of time travelling so need something lightweight and portable. It means I can watch movies, read books, browse websites for some online shopping and stay in touch with email while I’m between London and LA,” said Cat Deeley.

Other photos from behind the scenes at the shoot can be viewed at as well as videos that Cat will be shooting on her very own Galaxy Tab 10.1 over the next few months.

The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the newest member in the range of Galaxy Tab devices. It features a 10.1 inch crystal clear WXGA TFT LCD screen, weighs only 565 grams and is the world’s thinnest mobile tablet, of its screen size, measuring just 8.6 millimetres.

Available in both 3G and WiFi only versions, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 features the latest version of Android, Honeycomb 3.1, which is designed specifically for tablet devices.

The next device to join the Galaxy Tab range, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, will be available in the UK later this year. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 both join the original 7 inch device to provide a range of Samsung tablets for consumers to choose from.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is available in wifi only at DSG stores nationwide, with the 3G version being made available at a range of retailers and operators including Vodafone, Carphone Warehouse and Tesco later this month.

    Why do they always succumb the obvious when advertising these high end tech gadgets?

    What exactly does *Cat Deeley know about the Samsung tab 10.1 other than she’s getting one for free and someone is paying her money to say ‘it’s great and stuff, yeah’

    Come on Samsung, you should know better than this. Hand me that tab and I’ll speak about it with more passion and enthusiasm than that clothes horse ever could.

    *I’d do unspeakable things to her!

    personally….i think Cat is hot and those legs WOW!!!

    however, i know from radio interviews she did just after christmas this year she stated shes not technically minded. she was given an IPoo for xmas and had no idea how to use it….as she’s more inclined to read ‘paper’ books, magazines….

    so maybe Samsung should have done their research a bit better before hiring a beautiful woman to promote thier toy….
