Samsung who were non-existent in the smartphone race till 2009 jumped into the race in 2010 with their Galaxy S range of devices. Now the company is confident than before and claims they can sell 60m smartphones in 2011 alone.
At the CES, JK Shin told reporters that they’re looking to sell 60m smartphones in 2011, making them the top-tier mobile manufacturer.
“Last year was a meaningful one for Samsung’s smartphone business. By selling more than 20 million smartphones, we’ve successfully built a foundation on which to grow. And by selling 60 million smartphones this year, we will solidify our status as a top-tier industry player.”
This target may seem farfetched but considering what Samsung did in almost half a year in 2010, they might able to do with few more Galaxy S-like devices.
