When you finally build a new smartphone for instance, with a 4-inch WVGA multitouch screen, a 1Ghz Samsung processor, Android 2.1 with TouchWiz 3.0 UI, a 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, and the usual Wi-Fi/GPS/3G, you’d expect that it would launch in let’s say at least 3 countries, right? Tell Samsung that and you’ll get a nice “you’re kidding me”. The latter specs are exactly what’s in the Samsung Galaxy S, and according to the Korea IT Times, the Galaxy S will launch in 110 countries, out of the 192 on the planet (or 195, depending if you look at the world map specs differently).
That would mean Samsung wants all the glory, but if they fail, they’ll fail spectacularly. Or they’ll succeed. Like really succeed.
