The Ultra High Definition television will be available in
About four years ago when the LED Tvs came out, it wasn't affordable, but today, almost everybody can buy it. That is the way technology works. It may not be affordable today, but subsequently in the future, it will. In terms of the tablet range what was unveiled today also differs from what we have in
But if you look at some of the trends taken place between IT and mobility, there has been a lot of convergence. Consumers, whether in
Today, the device unveiled is targeted at professionals, but consumers have embraced virtually all the inches we have introduced from seven, nine and 10 and now 12. This is a device that offers completely different user interface, enables you to do so many things at a go.
Looking at these products unveiled today, what is your target for the next 12 months?
Our innovation targets every strata of the society. We don't just make products for just one aspect of the community. Some of the innovations are high end, but that does not mean the low end products are not meeting needs as well. For example, the Flatscreen TVs are targeted at the mass market, because they are affordable.
Samsung's strategy is to drive growth year-on-year and become market leader. In
In many ways, our businesses are been remodeled to fit into what people wanted.
In terms of mobile, we have feature phones for as low as N2,500 and Note 3 goes for as high as N105, 000 and of course there are several products in between these two sets.

The fact remains that we shall continue to look and explore every opportunity that comes our way to improve lives through technology. However, as time goes on, we are looking at the concept of a smart home, which is already in
The future is to be able to stream things live from one destination to another without challenges. It is making it simple, affordable and available; this is where technology is headed.
Samsung is looking at taking its digital village project to all part of
Some elements of the
We are also talking to more NGOs and organisations who we think can understand the process better. We have started the process but we hope to increase our engagement.
The fact remains that we are very committed to the Nigerian market. Consumers here have been very great. I can't say put a date to full deployment because so many things are involved, but we believe that as we continue in the campaign something will happen.
The fact is about using it to drive value, reason it is important to get all necessary stakeholders involved in the push. It is very easy to deploy, but you need to get the buy in of all necessary stakeholders for it to be successful. It is a work in progress.
Looking at the way Samsung's churn out products, almost on a monthly basis, how strategic is
For example, in
The Galaxy Grand fit into this and it has been successful. Besides, if you look at the current trends in the world, people want to be connected faster, share information faster among others, and so with that in mind, you need to develop technology that could meet such traffic.
