Samsung's Smartphone Assault

Techstination feature for Friday, July 9, 2010

Samsung's smartphone assault. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Samsung has become the leading seller of mobile phones in the U.S....but still has not been a leader in the smart phone category. Now, it is aiming to change that...taking on Apple and BlackBerry... with its Galaxy S phones that use Google's Android operating system. It is launching phones with all of the major wireless carriers in the U.S, featuring four inch super AMOLED screens... and they'll use Samsung's one GHz Hummingbird processor. Samsung's Chief Strategy Officer Omar Khan says on top of that...there will be a wide range of content for the phones...beyond the Android Marketplace...

"We're going to be bringing a full library of TV and movie content through a service called Media Hub. We're working additionally with other content partners to continue to optimize content to take advantage of the screen and the processor capabilities."

The first of the Galaxy S phones will arrive on T-Mobile later this month. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
