Samsung didn’t introduce a break through device this year, like they did last year, here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain. They introduced the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Galaxy Note 10.1, and the Galaxy 4.2. While all three seem like great deviecs it wasn’t the, wow factor we got from the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 at last years show.
We’re waiting for the Galaxy S III to release. We’re expecting it at CTIA in May in New Orleans, if not sooner.
Yesterday at Mobile World Congress the GSMA gave out their 2011 awards for “best in” categories. Now the MWC 2012 awards aren’t about this years show, rather they’re about last years sales, and innovation. Samsung received two big awards.
More after the break
Samsung won the award for “Manufactuer of the Year” and the award for “Smartphone of the Year” for the Samsung Galaxy S II. Earlier this week Samsung announced that they had sold 20 million Samsung Galaxy S II phones in the last 10 months.
Also, in a bold show of humility Samsung Executive Hankil Yoon said in Barcelona Monday, “Honestly, we’re not doing very well in the tablet market,” Samsung is hoping to improve on that with the Galaxy TAb 2 line and the 10.1″ Galaxy Note. We also think we’ll see a quad-core Galaxy Tab by CTIA in May.
