Samsung won’t even have a press conference at MWC, wants its own show?
Samsung has already toned down our big expectations for MWC - the Koreans said they won’t launch the Samsung Galaxy S III at the European mobile congress, but interestingly they’ve also confirmed that they won’t even have a press conference. This supposedly means that Samsung is not only not bringing the S III - it’s possibly not bringing anything major to the show.

Previously, though, the company has said that it “is looking forward to introducing and demonstrating exciting new mobile products at Mobile World Congress 2012.”

If Samsung goes with its former plans, it’s expected to bring a new tablet, featuring the new quadcore Exynos 5250 chip and possibly a high-res display. We’re also looking forward to the first Tizen devices, incorporating elements of MeeGo and bada. Those handsets are expected to be relatively affordable.

"Samsung’s products are getting more attention. Why should we want news that is lost amid other press releases. It’s too costly," said Choi Gee-sung, chief executive of Samsung.  Additionally, the timing of those big shows often doesn't coincide with the ideal one for the company. On the flipside of things, journalists and others who want to see the best of the industry in a single show, would need to fly to separate events to see a single product.

This marks an intentional strategy by the biggest in the industry to ditch large consumer shows for their own events. Apple has done it, Microsoft has announced they will start doing it and Samsung definitely has the capacity and user interest to go with its own events.

I wonder if they're going to copy Apple by rereleasing the Galaxy S 2 with a faster processor 16 months after it first launched?

The fact that the iPhone 4S sold as strong as it did, while it's only a refresh product 16 months after its original release is a testimonial of how retarded iPhone buyers are. We always joked that you guys would pay top dollar for anything with an i on the front of it. Sure enough you all bought the same old crap and even brag about it. Not to mention about how you idiots brag about how profitable Apple is. YOU'RE BRAGGING ABOUT A COMPANY WHO STOLE YOUR MONEY. Retards. You paid a 71% profit margin to Apple, they overcharged you and you praise them for it!

wow. that was deep.. and old... but since you don't have anymore to add to the table.. let me open your eyes... just because you have an opinion on a product/company doesn't make you right... who the f are to dictate who are idiots.. maybe because it takes one to know one.. I don't know.. as consumer we all get sucked in ( lowest prices of the month, clearance sales, Nike shoes etc..) unless you have never been suckered into buying something over priced I suggest you keep your mouth shut and your hands.. in your pocket...

None of the things you listed have a profit margin as high as Apple's products with the exception of cell phones and that's because the iPhone is a cell phone.

Just because you don't mind getting ripped off doesn't mean everyone is a sucker.

This is some of the best logic I've ever seen, no wonder it comes from the mouth of you gallito! "We overpay for cars and houses, so why rock the boat? Let's overpay for our phones too!". Idiocy at its best.

what the hell are you talking about? The Xperia S dominates the Galaxy s2 in everyway....stop being blind.

And I don't really know how am I hating on Samsung....i clearly stated that because the only company which shows competition (samsung) is not going to be there Sony is going to win this...

Xperia S dominates SGS II in everyway .. rly?
old cpu + gpu .. can't beat Exynos+ Mali400

Xperia S should be announced and released in late 2011 , it can't stand a chance against the new quad-cores beasts or dual-core A-15 !

i'll waste money on a phone that already is outdated because i love a company ! whoever brings the better specs will win my pocket!

And....are there any phones released with those spects yet?No.

And I don't think the S2 has any of these processors mentioned above. I don't really see your point.

Quadcore....lol. The Galaxy Tab and LG's newest phone are running on a dual core, stop trolling.

Apart from that, just relying on specs is stupid. Windows phones have single core processors and 512mb of ram and run very fast and smoothly.

The S2 has the Exynos processor and Super Amoled screen. The 2 best techs on the market right now. If you like touchwiz or not is preference, but you cant beat samsung's hardware. Thats not a debate, its fact.

are you really that dumb?
S2 got Exynos4210 and mali400 .. which is way better than MSM8260 CrapDragon and adreno220!

we are talking 2012 phones and spec! Sony even have no chance to be in the top 5 android manufacturer

don't compare WP or iOS to android ... in android spec really matters, so don't tell me that Sony have a great software make android as smooth as WP or iOS .. its still android after all

You really don't have to start a flame war. Be mature and accept other people's opinion.

I have to say that when I hear that the s3 wasnt gonna be introduced on the MWC it was a letdown as a consumer. I know that everybody is waiting for the next flagship. But the delayed is getting worse and worse. I hope they meet the expectations. Im not an iphone hater Im just a normal user but if they failed to bring something that will blow everyone head I will feel the same letdown when the iphone 5 (iphone 4s) went out

i can only shake my head at the comments made by apple fans here.

what i really hope this means is that samsung will start launching devices globally instead of making north america wait nearly a year after any new device launches in asia and europe.
