Freestyle football and Samsung Galaxy Note demonstrations at Victoria Station until 3pm today

As we reported yesterday, the Samsung Galaxy Note is being celebrated today with a kickabout flash mob in Victoria Station, four professional footballers and a staggering amount of Galaxy Notes.

Dubbed an interactive flashmob, the focus of the day seems to be getting public and pros together under one roof / net to share in the beautiful game. It all kicked off with a demonstration of the athletes fancy foot work with a bit of two aside, then they started using their heads and limbs getting into the freestyle. Now it looks like the rest of the day will be spent teaching intrigued onlookers how to get limber with a ball.

There are also demonstrators around for hands-on time with the handset not to mention free Samsung Galaxy Note branded water bottles for anyone who wants to get in the cage with the pros.

As we were weilding one ourselves, all the photos taken today were taken on a Samsung Galaxy Note and with at least 30 being demoed, anyone in the area after some hands-on time should make their way down – it’s running until 3pm today only in the main foyer of Victoria station.
