Samsung Alleges to have Already Sold 6 Million Galaxy S4 Devices

In a claim that should be no surprise, Samsung has announced it has already sold over 6 Millions Galaxy S IV devices. Thanks to little competition with HTC One not available globally and strong marketing campaign coupled with already a strong foothold in the market, S IV has once again been a run away success. Plenty of tech experts claimed that this could be the year when Samsung’s dominance would be questioned with HTC finally producing the device which turned plenty of heads, but seems like their inability to throw the HTC One in the playing arena is already beginning to cost them.

Samsung Galaxy S IV

According to a Samsung Executive, reports Chosun Ilbo, a Korean newspaper, that Samsung had sold about 4 million Galaxy S IV between April 26th and April 30th. This figure stands at massive 6 million as of May 10th. Although these figures may not be accurate to the point of number of Galaxy S IV bought by the customers, as they simply tell the units which were shipped to the carriers and retail partners, but it does affirm the strong demand of the device. The device has been available in most parts of Europe, Asia and America from the last week of April.

It is also expected that the sales figures will hit the sweet 10 million mark at the end of May confirming the device we already knew to be a blockbuster hit.

BlackBerry Announces BBM arriving on Android and iOS this Summer

Call it a desperate attempt to stay in the game or simply a masterstroke, BlackBerry announced yesterday in their BlackBerry Live event at Florida that it is set to roll out the popular BlackBerry service, BBM or BlackBerry Messenger multi platform to the likes of Android and iOS this summer. So far BBM was a BlackBerry exclusive and one of the few features apart from enterprise mailing solutions that really attracted people towards buying a BlackBerry. With the service rolling out for free on Android and iOS you must wonder now why would anybody pick a BlackBerry device given the ecosystem lags behind a fair bit as compared to the big players that are iOS and Android.

BBM for Android and iOS

Addressing a very enthusiastic gathering, Thorsten Heins, CEO of BlackBerry announced that:

“It’s time to bring BBM to a greater audience, no matter what mobile device they carry. We’re starting with messaging and groups, but we’ll bring voice, screen share, and of course, channels later on”

Although, in a way this move would keep BlackBerry as a  brand alive, since there is no better IM for smart phones when compared to BBM, we do wonder if gradually BlackBerry is losing it’s USP. The biggest loser in this announcement would perhaps be Whatsapp because so far it was the preferred choice of IM client for cross platform communication, but with BBM coming soon, you can bet plenty of people will jump on the bandwagon. Whatever it is, in the end it is a victory for Android and iOS users as they will be getting one of the best services in the business for messaging and keeping in touch and that surely is good news.
