Samsung expanding the software division as its next step to compete in the mobile industry

Samsung expanding the software division as its next step to compete in the mobile industry
Samsung will be increasing the ratio of software engineers from 50:50 to 70:30 in the army of employees in its mobile division. It already stepped up efforts by hiring Cyanogen and looking at other ROM modding groups.

Lee Kun-hee, the chairman of Samsung Electronics, rallied his lieutenants recently by saying that the power in IT is shifting from hardware to software, and Samsung needs to be prepared.

That's an almost 50% boost in software engineering power from the current about 25 000 coders, which Samsung is about to undertake, and only showing that it is very serious on executing. If we are about to witness better TouchWiz, Samsung's own cloud project or other goodies, we'd say bring it on.
