Samsung desires to seek out new margins to carry its personal and it should go during the device and imaginable acquisitions or mergers&#one hundred sixty;.
It's primarily the message delivered through Lee Kun-Hee – President of Samsung Electronics – a gathering held 24 hours after the announcement by way of Google of its want to purchase Motorola Mobility.
"&#one hundred sixty;We should beef up the competitiveness of data expertise (IT), safer human tools and likewise are looking for extra energetic in mergers and acquisitions"Kun-Hee has beneficial to the senior excessive staff, tells the information company Korean&#a hundred and sixty;Yonap .
He also urged his colleagues not to let out to other stakeholders its influence on the market " We must pay attention to the fact that computing power moving away from hardware manufacturers like Samsung to be closer to manufacturers software ".
This attention to the software is not new, said an official from Samsung – which has for example developed its own mobile OS, Bada – but it takes on new relevance in light of Google's decision to acquire a subsidiary material. It sounds at least a more realistic than the Samsung statement that followed the announcement of the takeover …

In early June, Stephen Elop was at length returned to the context that had presided over the agreement with Microsoft. On this occasion he had confirmed that Android was a moment considered an option to replace Symbian. But one potential option in the form of dead-end " There were fewer opportunities with Android to be different ".
