This so-called "Asian Tiger" has surged from devastation fifty years ago to become an economic powerhouse of the Pacific Rim. Among the handful of tremendous family-owned companies that drive the bulk of the country’s development is Samsung, best known in the US for its displays and cell phones (although it has divisions making virtually everything else). Recently we paid a visit to Seoul, where we were granted access to a bevy of Samsung executives and facilities. The objective: to glean a sense of where this South Korean super-company is driving its mobile-phone technology, and by extension, what direction we can expect the industry to take on the home front."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/Temporale-20050424-SamsungAudioDock.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />This Audio Dock is just one of the many really cool things the guys at Laptop Magazine found on their tour. One of the other cool phones they saw was the upcoming SGH-i300 Windows Mobile Smartphone from Samsung, that we have all been drooling over. They even have some details on this that I wasn't aware of. For starters, the phone will double as a USB memory key, which means you should be able to transfer music, videos, and other files from any computer with ease. And when you're ready to listen to all that music, you'll be happy to know that the stereo speakers are powerful enough to <i>"annoy a whole room".</i> 8) I would love to get my hands on the i300, it looks to be an amazing device. We're all aware that Samsung and Motorola are battling over second place in the mobile handset market. This inside look at Samsung really makes me think that Motorola has better step things up a lot!
