Samsung Plans To Make Its Own Retail Stores Inside Best Buys [Report]

Here is Samsung’s another big deal to compete once again with Apple. It looks like Samsung has planned to build 1,400 Retail Shops inside Best Buys in U.S. Its quiet tough to imagine that Samsung is not in mood to get-out of the battlefield. Samsung vs Apple, battle is not yet ended!

According to one famous blog, Samsung has signed the agreement in the end of the last year, that they will be opening 900 retail stores by the month of May, this year. However, many stores for business are expected to be open in this month. It looks like that the whole project would be completed by the month of June, this year.

Well, its about the speed and scale, Samsung has given-up the initial plans of making its own-retail stores, instead of doing it through Best Buys. It is quiet clear to say that, it is not carrying the same status as like Samsung’s own-stores, but it might be easy for Samsung to roll-out. VP of Samsung, Ketrina Dunagan stated on the heading of retail efforts that; “seventy percent of consumers live within 10 miles of a Best Buy.”

Exactly what do we expect that it would look like? It surely depends on the store, as we expect, it would carry 4 tables, each one of them would carry cameras, laptops, phones and tablets, as well as one wall for accessories would be present there and help desk finally. It is clear that the store’s management would be given under the employees of Best Buys, and there would be an specialist too, as expected that he/she would help you with some of the hardware or software issues, not all.

At first, it might make its standard, but in future, it would be much similar to Apple’s store-lites, as expected, but it would carry a lower version then that and it would be scaled-down. It isn’t a bad thing at all.

Let’s see what is going to happen?

Verizon Supporting Samsung

It seems like Samsung has a new BFF to help them out of the lawsuits they have been facing. Earlier today, Verizon announced that they are going to support Samsung in their war against Apple. They went as far as to request the court to deny a preliminary injunction against Samsung’s Infuse 4G, Galaxy S 4G, Droid Charge, and Galaxy Tab 10.1 devices.

According to Verizon:

…would hinder Verizon Wireless in developing and deploying its next generation high-speed LTE [fourth-generation] network, the job growth dependant on that network, and will undercut key public policy goals, including expansion of American’s [sic] access to broadband networks and faster communication with emergency personnel.

‘Clash Of The Titans’, Samsung Will Try To Ban iPhone 5

Battles are being fought and a war has started between Samsung and Apple. What started with a few allegations has now reached its breaking point and currently, 23 lawsuits are pending between the 2 companies.

Apple-vs-Samsung

According to Korea Times:

Just after the arrival of the iPhone 5 here, Samsung plans to take Apple to court here for its violation of Samsung’s wireless technology related patents,” said a senior executive from Samsung Electronics, asking not to be identified. 
“For as long as Apple does not drop mobile telecommunications functions, it would be impossible for it to sell its i-branded products without using our patents. We will stick to a strong stance against Apple during the lingering legal fights.

Although, the iGadget is still a distant notion, Samsung is already planning to sue Apple for using their wireless technology in the next generation iPhone, the iPhone 5.

Apparently, if Apple wants to use mobile communications in their next phone, they’d have to use Samsung’s wireless technology and Samsung is ready to sue them for it. We haven’t received a word from either of the companies regarding the matter. But we have many questions in mind like, why didn’t Samsung use this ‘killer blow’ when they first went head-to-head with their rival? Why is Apple still ‘hush, hush’ about this issue?

Whatever the case might be, we highly doubt that Samsung is going to be able to ban the iPhone 5 release. We are still waiting for results from both the poles.

The Thinnest Smartphone In The World

People have been wondering which smartphone is the thinnest of them all since Samsung Galaxy S2 came into the limelight. But none have been able to answer it up till now. Some rule in the favor of iPhone 4 others, choose the GS2.

Now that iPhone 5 release is eminent, Apple still had to steal away Samsung’s one last victory and keep it for themselves.

This is no longer a topic where people choose the smartphone that works the best, it is now also the battle of looks and features. There are hardly any smartphones available in the world that would come even slightly close to competing with iPhone 4 and GS2; the two beloved phones of the masses, at the moment.

Where the debate seemed to have lasted forever, UK’s Advertising Standards Authority chose to decide the matter once and for all.

According to them, the iPhone 4 measures at 9.3mm in depth no matter where you measure it from. While the GS2 measures at 8.71mm at its thinnest side and measures 9.91mm at its thickest point. Thus, Apple has won this battle too.
