PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Earlier today, Samsung revealed that it won't update the Galaxy S, its most successful smartphone to date, to the latest version of Android. You might shrug and dismiss that as just more evidence of Android's inherent fragmentation or the need for buyers to beware, but I take grave issue with it. This is a decision based not on technical constraints, as Samsung would have you believe, but on hubris." This. A gazillion million thousand times this. Also: "It's simple: make a large high-end device, a smaller value device, and a QWERTY device. Maybe one or two other specialty form factors, tops. That's it. Update them once a year, and keep the names the same." It would make updating a hell of a lot easier. We don't need the Samsung Galaxy SII Epic 4G Touch Sensation.

You do sound a bit insane.


Why because I support a proven business strategy (a highly diversified range of products) used by 99.99% of the most successful large companies in history?

Do you really think that any sane company should adopt the Apple model business which has already failed spectacularly in the past?

I'm pretty sure Samsung will still be around in 100 years. Apple will be lucky to survive another 10 years.
