JK Shin,President of Samsung’s Mobile business told PCMAG at CES 2011 that they will be showcasing their latest line up of devices mostly the Dual-Core phones and Tablets at MWC 2011 this year. Main competitors such as LG, Motorola have already introduced tablets, mobile phones and hotspots running the most recent version of Android (ie 2.3) with some beautiful specifications.
Though Samsung has already introduced various devices at CES, they haven’t had any groundbreaking products. Samsung’s executive vice president and head of marketing DJ Lee said that the company expects to sell at least 10% more cell phones in 2011 than they did last year. They are focusing more on capturing the mobile phone industry, rather than Feature phone market.And as far as the tablet news is concerned, Mr. Omar Khan (Samsung’s Mobile’s Chief strategy) also noted that some of those tablets which are going to be introduced at MWC may come in several latest forms.
New forms? – Ie, New categories and New form factors, different convergence opportunities in terms of docking, and interoperability with customer electronics,” he said. So all that i can tell is Samsung has taken the right way by concentrating more on mobile phones and tablets just like all other players. Announcing mobile products at an event like MWC makes more sense than at CES.
