Samsung introduces new mobile technology suite for enterprises

Samsung New Mobile TechnologySamsung sets sight on enterprises with new mobile technology

Samsung became the world’s leading smartphone manufacturer last year with the launch of the Galaxy S III. The company was able to dethrone Apple after years of competition and is now beginning to set its sights on BlackBerry, the company that has dominated the enterprise market for several years. BlackBerry’s smartphones are favored among business professionals because of the features they offer, but Samsung believes that it can offer enterprises much better tools that can synergize the personal and professional profiles in a single mobile device.

Samsung unveils Knox

Samsung has revealed an new enterprise initiative called Knox. The initiative is designed to allow users to make use of their personal and professional profiles on a single mobile devices, rather than keeping track of these profiles on various devices. This is similar to BlackBerry Balance, which is one of the major features of the recently launched BlackBerry 10 operating system. The BlackBerry Balance separates personal items, such as mobile games and entertainment applications, and corporate applications. This feature allows corporate applications to remain secure, free from the data collection methods that are common in apps like mobile games.

Knox will help keep corporate data secure

Samsung’s Knox is still in its early stages of development, but Samsung believes that the service will be well received in the world of enterprise. The system will help keep corporate applications secure by separating them from the rest of a smartphone’s operating system. These applications will still function as they are meant to, but the mobile device itself will have limited access to the information being used with these applications. Applications that are more personal will not be able to interact with corporate applications on any level.

Knox may be an adequate alternative to BlackBerry

Samsung believes that Knox will help provide more peace of mind for enterprises making use of mobile devices. Knox is expected to help address some mobile security issues that exist with the Android operating system. These issues have lead many enterprises to favor BlackBerry in the past, but that may change when Knox is fully actualized in the market at some point in the coming years.

Samsung gears to take on Apple in 2013

Samsung Takes on AppleSamsung has some ambitious plans for the future

This year has been a very powerful year for the mobile sector, but 2013 may be even more so, at least that is what Samsung is predicting. The mobile technology giant has big plans for 2013, many of which have yet to be unveiled. Over the past year, Samsung has made significant strides in establishing its dominance in the mobile space, especially with the recent launch of the Galaxy S III. In 2013, Samsung will be working to distance itself from what it considers to be its most significant competitor: Apple.

Samsung rivalry with Apple expected to heat up in 2013

Samsung and Apple have been entrenched in a volatile rivalry that has spanned years. Earlier this year, the two companies finalized a lawsuit, the results of which took both Samsung and Apple down a peg in the eyes of consumers and investors. Samsung has managed to fortify itself against Apple in recent months, and part of this involves increasing its production of mobile devices. In 2013, Samsung will ramp up production by 20%, with plans to ship at  least 510 million new mobile devices over the next year.

Company plans to ship at least 390 million smart phones

Approximately 390 of these mobile devices are expected to be smart phones. A portion of these will be equipped with NFC technology, which is also included in the Galaxy S III. This technology has been well received by consumers because of its ability to facilitate wireless data sharing. The technology is also widely used in the mobile commerce space, where it can make payments from a mobile device possible.

Apple will not be going down without a fight

Samsung predicts that the demand for smart phones may diminish over the next 12 months as the market becomes over-saturated. Despite this potential problem, the company has plans to continue developing and shipping devices that are meant to provide consumers with a viable alternative to Apple products. Apple itself has very ambitious plans for 2013 and the two companies are expected to continue butting heads as they vie for dominance in the mobile space.
