    Fawk you Sammy. I'll never buy another product of yours. Your support lacks, even in the tv segment of the market.
    GTFO of the USA with your fail-support.
    My galaxy S phone I have to use for work is the worst decision I ever made in picking a phone.

    It is a completely real and attainable goal, although lofty. Let me point out a few facts to you

    1. The vast majority of the world are sheep and have no idea what they are missing and probably couldn't tell the difference between 2.1 and 2.2 if it were right in front of them. The iPhones success is a good example of how many sheep there are in the world.

    2. He knows what kind of awesome devices they have coming down the pipeline that will drop this year and he can probably gauge what kind of reception these devices will meet in the market. He pays people a lot of money to find out what each market needs and wants in a phone and he pays other people a lot of money to give him success projections based on this.

    3. They are going to make a massive push into the largest and fastest growing market in the world, SE Asia, more specifically, China. Yes, they are going to sell boatloads of phones. That is a market that is virtually untapped and everyone in every form of business is trying to get into that market. Because of their huge population, lack of saturation and a want for everything brand new, are larger market than anyone other country in the world.

    You guys are looking at things from a narrow point of view, you need to think globally to understand because he is.

    Sure, but the only problem is, while China may have 1B people, they make on average about 2% what people in developed countries make. How many have the disposable income for a $300 smartphone and data plan? Maybe it could be 100M, point being it's well less than 1B and, for now, a smaller smartphone market than the US.

    I think estimates were IPhone sold 4M units in China last year, so that gives you an idea where that martket is at.

    They are quickly approaching the largest market for automakers, specifically GM in the world. Meaning they are selling more cars there than anywhere else in the world, including here. Almost. It says on this website that by 2010 they will would be the 2nd largest market in the world. They were already number 3. Cars produced in the world - Worldometers

    The iPhone is an upmarket device, samsung makes all kinds of devices, not just top of the line. I also said SE Asia, not just China. That includes S. Korea and Japan. The point is watch, they will do big things this year.

    I just think it's ridiculously optimistic - IPhone sold @ 50M worlwide last year, I think, and are hitting low tiers of the market by selling the 3g still. But Samsungs thinks they are going from 10M in 6M to 60M in 12? I'd be shocked if they hit 40M.

    Good info on the cars. Didn't realize they had grown THAT quickly.

    Again, you are not looking at the big picture. Your point of reference is coming from the US perspective. Nokia like the article said is the biggest cell phone producer in the world. SAmsung is #2. They want to be #1 by the end of the year. Let me ask you, how many people do you know who have a Nokia product here? I'm going to assume that you don't know anyone with a Nokia phone or very few at most. And yet Nokia is the largest producer in the world. How is this if they have very little business here? It's because there are over 6 BILLION people on earth and we don't even make up 1/10 of that population. All you see are the articles that say 50 million iphones sold last year. That's great for the American market but is tiddlewinks when you look at it from a world perspective. All I'm saying is look at it from a global perspective and you'll see where they have a real good chance of hitting that number next year. I'm not a huge fan of Samsung but I am not going to deny that they are a real world power in the phone world and Apple is not the end all and be all comparison.

    No, Samsung didn't say 60M phones, they were talking SMARTPHONES, and even in the US adoption is a relatively small percentage of the market.

    The IPhone sold 50M IPhones GLOBALLY last year, in the US it was only 14.5M. I understand the market just fine. I understand the global perspective just fine. The market is not big enough for Samsung to sell 60M smartphones unless it triples in size, and it's not going to do that.
