Their Finest Hour - High speed web browsing demo at the Motorola Mobility Event (September 2012)

Motorola On Display

Shortly after the Nokia and Microsoft event, Motorola held another show to announce their new RAZR line of Android smartphones. All of them will ship with the Chrome browser as standard, running on top of Android ICS (to be upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean shortly after).

During the show, Rick Osterloh took the stage to demonstrate how fast the new Chrome powered RAZR smartphones were compared to the competition. Eric Schmidt (Google's CEO) was following him closely from the first row of seats when..

This episode tarnished an otherwise nice and well though-out event. I can imagine how bad Rick felt at that precise moment (I feel your pain lad), but worse in the shoes of the network guy - once the event finished.

Do you know of other events where something alike happened? Please have your say in the comments section below.
