Samsung planning its own Web-Centry cloud service, to be launched in September
Since leaks about Apple's iCloud service started to appear, the shares of Amazon and Google have been stagnating or down with the broader market, since these companies have cloud offerings of their own, but Apple's huge customer base is only poised to become larger and even more involved in Cupertino's ecosystem now.
Besides the usual uploading and syncing of contacts, data and multimedia files to Samsung's servers, Web-Centry will have some business-oriented features, like shared folders, which can be accessed only by certain users. Mobile office services like collaboration seem to also be on tap.
The nice part is that this cloud service will link Samsung's other devices, like Smart TVs, for instance, for streaming movies or viewing docs directly on the big screen. The service is supposedly being developed together with Google's cloud offerings, which coincides with what Eldar Murtazin wrote once, that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is developed in close cooperation with Google. The Web-Centry service seems like a perfect fit for Samsung's Android-based smartphones and tablets, so we'll be eagerly awaiting September to see what's in store for us.

And which Samsung high end phone outsold the iphone again? Oh......NONE. So let's just add up all Samsung phones from their low end to their high end phones so that it would have a higher number of phones sold than the iphone :)
Nice try ganging up on the iphone :)

I won't be surprised if Samsung will also be putting up a spaceship-like building soon.
I think Samsung is the biggest Apple fanboy :)
