From the looks of what her hand is doing having to stretch to the size of holding that tablet with one hand, I suspect we are looking at a whole new class of hand injury (ala Carpal Tunnel) that will be affecting those trying to replicate her feat over long periods of time. May be a bit easier for some men with larger hands, but I think the 7" form factor (along with weight) would be a struggle, let alone doing it with an 8" device.

Did EE Times send any of their Reporters to MWC ?Frankly I am disappointed with the meagre coverage so far of MWC in EE Times. MWC is after all the biggest Show for Mobiles and most bigshots like Samsung, QC etc. display their new technologies there.

kinda true, but for an epic tech nerd like me, i always love looking at sophisticated-looking devices instead.

Because EEWIZ, you are already promoting the stereotype. You assumed she was hired just for the role of holding the product, but she could be an engineer with an MBA in marketing for all we know.

I hope that's a rhetorical question. I do, though, question the soundness of marketing a tablet that displays the recipe for "tirdmasu", which does not sound good.

It's the whole "sex sells" type of marketing. Plus "beauty by association".

Why do companies hire pretty women for product launch demonstrations?
