By Olav Hellesø-Knutsen on January 4th, 2011 | Tags samsung

10 millions to be exactly. Not bad for a high-end phone that has been available for only 7 months. To sell 10 million of the Samsung Galaxy S was also the goal for the Korean company aiming to be the number one mobile phone manufacture withing 3 year, or at least to overtake Nokia as the leading manufacture.

The latest rumors from Korea tells us that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will end it’s update path on Android 2.3. It seems like the requrements to run Android 3.0 Honeycomb is a device with dual-core CPU. Galaxy Tab is a single-core tablet. All tablets announced at the CES fair in a couple of days are running Android 3.0 according to sources.

Samsung Mobile web site hacked?

By Olav Hellesø-Knutsen on February 12th, 2010 | Tags samsung

Samsung announced the Samsung Monte a couple of days ago and they announced this via a press release on the web site. At the bottom of the press release there is a link to Samsungs Mobile World Congress web site. The address is If you click this link you won’t find any Samsung content. You are asked to download the page. The page is a web server code for redirection to another site. This is the code:

<% response.sendRedirect(
visitgbn=10618101&coflag=0"); %>

It does not work, but from the source you can see that the intention was to redirect you to www_dot_millimetresmatter_dot_com. And what is that? A Russian (surprised?) video sharing site. Is this a dummy code installed by samsungmwc2010 developers, or has someone been able to change the web server files without samsungs knowledge?
