Samsung–From Handsets to Mobile Entertainment… For Your Car
Technology giant Samsung–the Suwon, South Korea superpower that sells nearly one in every three smartphones worldwide–is eyeing the future as demand for the high-end handsets that made them famous has waned a bit. Consumers have demonstrated interest in not only getting from Point A to Point B in their vehicles, but to do it in style and to be entertained as they travel.
Some of the same technology that works in their uber-popular smartphones, including technology in the cameras, memory chips and liquid crystal displays (LCDs), would work well as components automakers can utilize in the vehicle’s entertainment systems. Demonstrating their commitment toward this market, Samsung has already inked a partnership with Intel on an open source software referred to as Tizen. This software can operate televisions, tablet computers, smart phones and yes, car systems.
Toyota, the world’s largest automobile manufacturer, has taken notice, express serious interest in the technology. But, Samsung hasn’t stopped there. The techno-giant attended the recent International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas alongside an unprecedented nine (9) automakers, including General Motors and Audi.
The fact is, Samsung offers a rare mix of technological savvy and manufacturing competence, qualities not often found in their industry. And with consumer demands reflecting a desire for their beloved gadgets to be easily accessible in both their homes and vehicles, this mobile market will likely emerge sooner than we think. These high-end electronics, though, will likely be costly to replace, should damage or theft occur to your vehicle. Therefore, as the technology is introduced, a slight increase in coverage rates may also come along with it. But it may also assist with responsible use behind the wheel, as the distraction resulting from checking a mobile device may be minimized.
