Samsung Camera in your pocket

SAMSUNG recently launched the ST50, a exceptionally slim 12.2 megapixel digital camera. Measuring 16.6mm thick (excluding the lens), it’s the ultimate pocket-sized digital imaging solution.

Equally noteworthy is Samsung’s new Smart Auto feature in the ST50, which takes ease-of-use to a new level. When engaged, Smart Auto will automatically select one of ST50’s 11 scene modes which best suit the environment the user may be shooting in.

The ST50 also offers consumers Face Detection, Smile Shot, Blink Detection and Beauty Shot technology, all engineered to improve results and enhance images.

The Samsung ST50 is now available in Malaysia at a recommended retail price of RM999.

iPhone bucks handset sales falls

The popularity of Apple’s iPhone is continuing to buck the fall in global mobile phone sales, a study has found.

Shipments of the iPhone totalled 5.2 million units between April and June, a six-fold increase on a year earlier, according to Strategy Analytics. This compares with an industry-wide decline of 8% to 273 million units.

While sector-wide sales were down for the third consecutive quarter, the rate of decline slowed from the -14% recorded in the first quarter of 2009.

Apple was not the only manufacturer to see sales rise during the latest quarter. Shipments at Samsung were up 14% from a year earlier to 52.3 million units, while LG rose 8% to 29.8 million.

However, Nokia saw shipments decline 15% to 103.2 million handsets, Sony Ericsson fell 43% to 13.8 million, and Motorola shipments dropped 47% to 14.8 million. The report came as Motorola reported an unexpected profit for its second quarter ending on 4 July.

The firm made a net profit of $26m (£16m), up from $4m a year earlier, thanks to major cost reductions including 8,000 job cuts so far this year.

Market stabilising

Despite the iPhone’s strong rise in sales, Strategy Analytics said it still has only a 2% share of the global market. This compares with the 37.8% stake held by market leader Nokia.

Samsung remains in second place on 19.2%, followed by LG on 10.9%, Motorola on 5.4%, and Sony Ericsson at 5.1%. Strategy Analytics said the global mobile phone market was now “showing signs of stabilisation”.

“The worst of the handset recession may be behind us,” it said.

Samsung to focus on new products: Chairman

 SEOUL: South Korea’s Samsung Electronics will this year focus on developing new products and tapping into new businesses to get ahead of competitors amid the global economic slowdown, its chairman said Monday.
Lee Kun-Hee, in a New Year’s speech to employees, said existing businesses would experience a stagnation in growth, and that new start-ups would provide the best opportunities even although they will find it increasingly competitive during the downturn.

“Samsung’s future lies in new businesses, new products and new technologies,” he said, stressing the need for “increasing investment and jobs and focusing on exports.”

Samsung is the world’s largest technology company by revenue and closely competes with Apple in the fast-growing smartphone market.

It is also the world’s leading memory chipmaker and makes a wide range of products.
