Thursday, 17 November 2005

President George W. Bush is said to have been full of praise for a Samsung cellular telephone he took a look at while in Busan for the APEC summit. The company said on Tuesday Bush paid special attention to a slim third-generation phone as well as the Serene model phone jointly produced by Samsung and Bang & Olufsen at the Samsung Electronics booth at the APEC IT exhibition last Friday.

Bush, the company claims, tried out the 14.9 mm thick slim phone, and hammed it up by asking to put through to White House. On seeing the Serene phone, he is said to have praised its design, according to company staff. When asked what kind of cell phone he was currently using, the president admitted he had been living without a cell phone for the last three years because calls are always put through to him by others.

Watching a demonstration of the wireless mobile Internet service WiBro developed by Samsung, Bush is said to have exclaimed, “Samsung is excellent.” He said he had known the company well because of its support from the time he served as Texas governor, the company claims.

Samsung to Challenge Apple in Online Music Field

10/30/05:

The vibes coming out of the Korean electronics giant Samsung, indicate that they could be very close to launching an iTunes type music store, to gain strong hold in the portable music market.

Take another look at Samsung and its market penetration. They have significant product offerings in all portable music device markets including MP3 players (branded YEPP), flash memory technology which powers the iPod Nano and not to forget cellphones that are going to be the converged mobile music device of the future. And the numbers speak for themselves; Samsung sold about 1.7 million MP3 players last year, which significantly trails the iPod offerings and the likes of Creative Zen. Also, Samsung has historically endorsed flash based technology which has its own technical limitations of peak storage. In order to gain more traction in the market place, they have recently jumped into the HDD based portable media player market, where iPod has been able to offer utpo 60GB of music storage. If portable music is on the radar for Samsung’s strategy, a music store targeted to Samsung’s devices can be a good way to offer a comprehensive portable music experience.

Earlier this year, Samsung also announced that it plans to catch up with Apple and become one of the top three leading MP3 manufacturers in 2007, by securing a market share of 25-30 percent. The key would be distinguishing their offerings from iTunes. Typically the approach that Apple and others have taken is to offer a larger choice of music, provide tight integration with their own iPod player offerings and customize music offerings for local markets. Samsung would only be able to afford to pursue this strategy after achieving some ground hold in this space.
