Samsung on Tuesday showed it is not one to rest on its laurels. Having made the smartphone space its own in India, the company now seems all set to capture the enterprise computing segment where tablets have for some time been touted as the next big thing.
At the annual Samsung Forum in Bali, B D Park, Samsung Electronics’ president and CEO for South West Asia, said the company will focus on bringing in smarter experiences for its customers, of which there are more and more every year. No wonder then that the company has recently been touted as the eighth most valuable in the World.
The company’s big ticket announcement was the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO, a 12.2-inch tablet that seems to be aimed at the enterprise segment due to its productivity-centric features. It is also expensive, meaning it will keep away the ‘non-serious’ buyers. Country head Vineet Taneja estimated that the serious buyers, who need the productivity, would be at least 100,000. For a tablet that cost Rs 64,900, that would be a good place to start at.
