Samsung Electronics showcased an extensive portfolio of Symbian smartphones at this year’s Smartphone Show in London, United Kingdom.
Samsung sees a great growth potential in the open Operating System based smartphone market, and has invested a lot of R&D and marketing resources in this market for the past several years. Consequently, the Korean headquartered vendor plans to offer a wider range of open OS mobiles this year, demonstrating significant progress in open OS and smartphone technology.
Sandeep Saihgal, GM of mobile phones at Samsung Gulf Electronics said: “I’m sure that we will see more and more demand for smartphones with open OS thanks to the increasing need for flexibility and customisation on mobiles, and the introduction of various mobile applications. Samsung’s new Symbian OS-based smartphones such as Samsung INNOV8 shows our strategic focus on the open OS phone market.”
“We will reinforce our open OS and smartphone strength not only by providing more products, but also by opening our new developers collaboration program ‘Samsung Mobile Innovator’,” Saihgal concluded.
