Long before you were born, apparently.
Hmmm... So letting someone take shortcuts by ripping you off is now considered taking the high road?
As for demand in China, it's no different than in the US before the iPhone 5 launched when all the talk was about the GS3. Once the iPhone 5 launched, that all changed. Galaxy sales quickly faded which is why you're already seeing fire sales for the S3 and why Samsung execs tried to mute this quarter's expectations with talk of competition (ie, iPhone 5 launch). It will be the same in China. Apple will drown out Samsung with the iPad mini and iPhone 5 launch.
Until China buys it all.
Heh heh, Google will have terrible heart burn if Samsung fork Android the way that Amzn did with Fire HD. Amzn took Android 4.0, using their own App store (Play store is Google property and Google has been using it as the weapon to make sure every Android vendor is in line with what they wish. No access to Play store mean the platform is useless unless you have your own app store) and then sell the search right to Microsoft Bing.. Once Samsung did that they would have burned the bridge with Google. For now, Samsung will want to have access to latest and greatest Android stuff so long as the improvement are meaningful. In a few years when the smartphone growth slow down, it will be a way for Samsung to make extra dollars on their phones..
'Muricah. No offense.
