The Korean-giant Samsung Electronics, promised to sell 10 million Galaxy S units by the end of 2010. It looks like they may keep it. With over 9.3 million units sold world-wide (as of now), the company needs to sell only around 700,000 more units to reach the 10 million mark. Meanwhile, Samsung was also able to sell over 1 million Galaxy Tab units worldwide.
Samsung is popular in selling Android-based smartphones. At least that’s what the notion is in North America. But its own proprietary mobile OS a.k.a. Bada is also enjoying its own success, especially in Asia. The Korean giant expects to sell at least 5 million Bada-powered phones by the end of 2010. That’s not all. The company also estimates the number of downloaded Bada-apps to be around 50 million before the end of the year.
Samsung has sold over 600,000 Galaxy Tabs in just a month. The number shows a world-wide data, and also shows how influential Google’s Android has become. The device is now clearly a direct competitor of Apple’s iPad.
Samsung Galaxy Tab – the true iPad competitor, will now be available through all 4 major US carriers
If you think iPad is the only available solution for true multi-touch tablet computing, then you are wrong. Welcome the Samsung Galaxy Tab, a powerful/super-portable tablet computer, that can do everything the iPad can, and more. The 7-inch device includes a 1Ghz Cortex A8 processor, a 1024×600 screen resolution, 3MP camera on back, 1.3MP camera in front, gyroscope sensor, accelerometer, magnetic sensor, Android 2.2 (Froyo) and also packs in a 4000 mAh battery.
If you thought that 3D HDTV is something you can never even dream to afford, then perhaps you are wrong. Thanks to Samsung, the Korean giant recently broke the sub-$1000 price barrier by launching the PN50C490. At 720p, although it does not support full-HD, considering it has a massive 50-inch screen and ridiculous priced at $989, I am sure not too many people will complain.
Samsung recently demonstrated a transparent 19-inch AMOLED display, a see through screen that is almost the same as you may have seen in some of the sci-fi movies. At this point the Korean giant has achieved a 30% transparency. Although it is still a prototype, I still think we are going are heading to the right direction.
The first phone Wave phone has been launched by Samsung slightly ahead of schedule in Germany. This is also the first phone running Samsung’s own Bada operating system. Priced at around 429 Euros ($545) the device is now available (unlocked) for pick-up in Germany. The device model is S8500 and is considered a high-end alternative to other Samsung mobile phones.
