No international or US availability for the "flexible" Galaxy Round
Regardless if one can find use for such a design or not, we've gotten a piece of news from Samsung that may not appeal to the geeks of the world, who have been patiently waiting for the South Korean company to bring this technology to market. A Samsung spokesperson has confirmed for us that there are no immediate plans to release the Galaxy Round in international markets or the US. Instead, it will be exclusively sold in Samsung's homeland of Korea (the release date is October 10), where the company is known to soft-launch its more off-beat products. In case the phone is received well, it wouldn't be surprising if we see an international release for the Round at a later date. Whether or not this is going to happen, though, is too early to say.
Are you expecting Samsung's first handset with a curved/flexible screen to become popular with consumers?
