Report: Samsung Hoping to Double Smartphone Market Share by the End of 2010
Samsung is hoping to up its global smartphone market share this year from 5% to 10%. Lee Donjoo, senior vice president of the company’s mobile communications division, told Bloomberg this week that Samsung is banking on the success of its Galaxy S smartphone. His comments largely echo those made by other executives within the company.
As of late, Samsung has lost consumer trust. There is a general feeling among smartphone consumers that Samsung does not produce good products, they do not support their smartphones (Behold II anyone?), and they do not care about user experience. These feelings are also felt by many Android fans within the Android community.
In spite of all this, Samsung has a tough task ahead of them. This certainly won’t be easy, but if they are going to do it Android will be the key. I truly hope the Galaxy S succeeds.
So what do you think? Do you like Samsung smartphones? Can they double market share?
