Samsung Shooting for 60 Million Smartphones sold in 2011
Samsung sure is gutsy. J. K. Shin, a Samsung Mobile rep, told Korea Times in an interview that Samsung is aiming to triple its smartphone sales this year. In 2010, Sammy sold 20 million smartphones. In 2011, They’re shooting for 60 million. It’s nice to have goals, but the whole Vibrant Plus fiasco isn’t exactly the best way to start the year. Samsung reps must have some really good tricks up their sleeves if they think they’re going to reach 60 million handsets this year.
Shin said that Sammy plans to introduce several new handsets and tablets next month at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (Galaxy S2, anyone?). Keep in mind that this isn’t only Android devices they’re talking about. Obviously, Android will be the front-runner, but Samsung may crank out a few non-Android devices before the year’s end. Only time will tell if they’ll be able to reach their goal. Good luck, Samsung. You’re going to need it.
