Samsung really is going for every market: plans a new Android flip-phone

Samsung really is going for every market: plans a new Android flip-phone
By now, we all understand that Samsung's business model is the complete opposite of Apple. Where Apple focuses on a few devices and tries to make each device fit the needs of as many users as possible, Samsung wants to make sure it has a specific device for every single potential customer. And, it seems that even includes the flip-phone market.

The new word from Korea is that Samsung is planning to release an Android powered flip-phone in August that will be called the Samsung Galaxy Folder (get it?). The device will feature a 480x800 WVGA display and a dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset, along with LTE, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Not surprisingly, the device would be aimed at the low-end market. Perhaps your parents who refuse to give up their 6 year old flip-phone may be the target market?

Its OK at this point. I see no point in complaining over Samsung constantly launching device. I just hate the damn fans that come to Samsung's defense. It sickens me....-_-

Each OEM has different objectives and the fans of these OEMs feel a need to represent them...that is how they are different...-_-

So they're really no different than the fanboys from any other OEM. All of them can be obnoxious and antagonistic, to single out one and ignore the others is pointless, in that they all need to let others like what they like, and worry about themselves.

No,that is not my point. I'll bash any fanboy of any OEM I see fit if it ever came down to it. And its not them liking something that bothers me. Its there hopeless defense of a company and a blatant disregard for others and their opinions.

Sounds like you are bothered by Samsung giving their fans a lot more ammo than your preferred company.

AGAIN, his question is how are Samsung fanboys any different than those from other OEMs. The fact is they are not. Any of them do the things you mentioned. So how are they different? If all of them are doing the same thing, they are the same, the only difference is the company or OS they are fans of.

Samsung is not pointless
Nokia is not pointless
Moto, LG, Sony and HTC are not pointless too
well..... this left only 1 thing in the entire universe to be pointless: some kind of bitten fruit

It's like Samsung is creating a planet...
Samsung said, "Let there be phablets" and there it was.
Samsung was still not happy, so it said again, "Let there be Phongs (long phones)" and here it is.
And finally Samsung is resting...wait, are they?

Although you may not like it, but, I think this is an excellent option for all those who are upgrading from their outdated iPhone 4/4S this year!!

I'm not sure how or why the number of devices an OEM produces should bother anyone.....no one is forced to buy them.

Every team company every little thing has fan.. It's not the fans that bother me it's the fact they will defend it with their lives like they are the ceo of the company or they are getting paid for... Some ppl in here if they were to see each other and have the discussion I don't think with end with words... Ppl defending another company to gain??? I love to see companies fight it out and the end of the end I got beat end of it. Every leader as to be replaced with another someday or another... When Nokia enters the world of Android flagship Sammy will have a hard time...

It's gotta be touch screen right? If it is, I wonder how you'll use it. It looks like it will be super wonky to operate. Unless you can fold it out 360 like a Lenovo Yoga thing.

Exactly my point....throwing spaghetti on the wall too see what sticks... But this phone has an exterior touchscreen on the outside they you can use when the phone is closed...

It could be. I like the concept just calling a spade a spade... I wonder will it have that 3.3 inch size touch screen. The other rumour was a 3.7 inch.

Spaghetti approach works if you have the cash to do it. Samsung is a case study for that. Flood the market with options in every space. Apparently, you have a problem with this business approach. I assume your business approach is much better.

You can assume if you want and I can confirm that you are right. Lol, I didn't mind at first, but when they started screwing up brands and making devices that overlap with too similar specs it got aggravating. I don't like it. So be it. I can't change Samsung's mind. I only can be vocal about my opinion, build a bridge and get over it.... Nice life to you, carbon based life form. :)
