Nokia to break up with Samsung as supplier, too, as 'the firewall is as sturdy as a pile of kimchi'

0. phoneArena 15 Feb 2013, 06:20 posted on

Conflict of interest is cited as Nokia is straight-out concerned that information might leak from Samsung's conveyor belts to the higher-ups, indicating what handsets the company has in the pipeline...

Nokia didn't throw a fit back then, did they? But then Apple happened... litigation went crazy, and the noisy goofball got rewarded. It showed the others that bad behavior and rocking-the-boat pays off. It is no surprise that Nokia and others may join this bandwagon. They are learning from Apple that bad behavior and childish outcry pays well for a minimum in legitimate effort. The squeeky wheel got the grease. Others will soon follow suit... and I mean that both figuratively and literally.

Not AMOLEDs, specifically, but I know some Nokia ClearBlack screens were manufactured by Samsung

hyundai use to have a tie up with mistubishi. once they know how to make cars they kick mitsubishi out. samsung use to have tie up with sony, once they got the technology they parted ways with sony. that's business.

Im not so sure about that
But even if those are true story, it just sounds like those two japanese companies are losers.

Let me give you guys an example.

If im basketball player and Michael Jordan is my roll model so i follow his every moves and try to learn every his skills
Someday i can play better than him.
This is what we all do or should do to become better us.

But it seems people(or maybe true haters) just like to call them
"A STEALER"

Cmon...if its like that we all have same thing same brand and no more innovation by now
Open your eyes and mind..

Dont get me wrong im not directly talking to you

lol your basketball example made me laugh dude that's a game and tricks are open you can see them perform and they don't sign a patent that this stun or moves are property of this player only. But in business contracts are stick and one violates other have no option to withdraw soon as possible or fight in court which is apples way don't know Nokia goes that way or not.

Nokia will certainly not want Samsung to copy their pureview a research of 5 years in a 3 months

It is just an example nothing more.

Yes like you said business is business..it is strict and a real world.
So samsung is doing better business than the others except for apple since they are selling and making far more money than them.

So simple :)

When you see a Samsung (certain specialized new design for) OLED phone as you surely will, you are looking at something that was stolen from Nokia.

Lay off the crack and put on some lipsticks, Microsoft wants to ram something good.

A lot of hate from Sammy fans geez. Nokia is merely protecting its assets. What's wrong with that? But perhaps unconsciously these Samsung fans can't wait to be really on top of everything (top up the Pureview, lagless WP, secure Blackberry).. I know they want too.

Whoa...thats a pretty big accusation from Nokia.

Has anything with Pureview shown up anywhere else but a Nokia phone? Are they assuming, or do they know? And OLED screens...that doesnt make sense. Samsung has been using LED technology in HDTVs before the phones...If I'm not mistaken.

Where's what I dont get: Sony makes camera tech available to different companies. Is Nokia worried about Samsung stealing info...or they dont wanna lisence the info out to anyone else?

What is Nokia really trying to say here? Are they basing all this off the Apple vs Samsung saga?

And I already know the direction this comment section is gonna take...

You know exactly what Nokia is trying to convey!!! Its not so much as what is showing up now, but what will be showing up soon!!! Its all a players game and its all technological brinkmanship that is on the way!!

I think this report is implying that Samsung as a parts manufacturer is taking advantage of the tech outsourced to its plants for production. It's not about the nationalities of the workers.

I agree. For almost 10 months now, I have been noticing an uptick in the amount of racially/ethnically "insensitive" news stories concerning Asians. The situation in Australia with Koreans being targeted with assault. The Hollister clothing models in Korea (and elsewhere) with the "chinky" eyes. Now, this "pile of kimchi." Kimchi is not "piled." Kimchi is stacked in storage containers. Animal feces is in piles. So ... jsdechavez, I would have left this story alone and I would have reluctantly conceded that "It's not about the nationalities of the workers." I would have considered it "borderline" - but the kimchi reference is, without question, offensive.

Seriously, settle down, this isn't a racial issue. It is one company reportedly stealing and passing secrets from another. The situation in Australia with Asian immigrants is lamentable, but large influxes of immigrants are typically looked at poorly in the countries they migrate too when they reach a certain population size (Take for example Latin people in the U.S., Muslims in Europe, or even people of other Asian descent in Japan.)
You really shouldn't be comparing those things to come to the conclusion that the world at large is against Asians or something crazy like that.

As for the last part, clearly the "insider" was trying to make a joke, which came off in poor taste and not funny. He was comparing that instead of there being a sturdy wall between the supplying portion of Samsungs business and their handset business there is actually very weak and not much of a wall at all. He used kimchi because Koreans are known for their kimchi, probably the most after their technology. (Shortly before delicious sam-gyup-sal..mmmm korean bbq.) And it's true, koreans love their kimchi, they give it to you as an appetizer at every korean restaurant you go to, and I eat it whenever I'm over at my gf's house because she also always has some. It wasn't racist, it was just a poorly thought up joke.

This is about one company purportedly stealing secrets from another and nothing else, try to not make it about anything else. Hopefully we'll find out more info if Samsung is actually guilty of what this insider says or not.

"clearly the "insider" was trying to make a joke, which came off in poor taste and not funny" - the standard defense of a racist.

And bringing unrelated issues into the topic is in no way trying to justify your own misguided viewpoint? I mean, you literally scoured the entire earth to find incidents to back up your viewpoint that the world is against Asians (andseemingly Koreans, specifically, in your viewpoint). And I'm not defending him, I'm saying he made stupid remarks that were him trying to make a joke. Do I think people are bigoted if they bring in hamburgers to make a point about Americans. No. i think they're retarded and move on with my life.Instead of acting like a thin-skinned child, there is real racism and bigotry in the world that needs to be addressed (such as what is happening in Australia)...this isn't one of those things. It's about a business possibly stealing from another business.

I'm from Asia and I don't care about Asian industry.

I support the perfect American and Europian industry.. Especially the products that came from the Finnish legendary.

I concur with Nokia move on this issue. Cut ties with Samsung, NOW!!! Alot of you talking s**te must look at the bigger picture here and why Nokia is doing it. Samsung always has a 1 up on its competitiors when it sells its components and parts. Nokia, Blackberry, Apple, Sony etc all used or for the most part use Samsung components. Don't you all find it ironic that Samsung always knows what its competitors are bringing to the table because of this. The industry will be introducing some phenomenal technology in the coming months. Bendable screens etc, simply remarkable technology because of patenting Nokia saw its best interest to seperate before Samsung steals another major idea. Shame on you Samsung, becareful what your doing. Samsung it will comeback to haunt you in a major way. You will all know what I am speaking about in 6 months time.

I almost downvoted you because you can't spell/use "you're
" accurately.

And it wouldn't be "ironic" of Samsung knowing what the competitors are developing, it'd be coincidental.

Other than that, I mostly agree with your post (#14)
