Samsung To Focus On Galaxy S3 For London 2012 & Keep Tablets Out Of Olympics Limelight

Samsung is unlikely to push its soon-to-be released tablets as much as the Galaxy S3 as part of its massive global Olympics game marketing campaign; the follow up to the Galaxy S3 will be launched on the 3rd of May in London.

The reason for that is simply because Acer has the exclusivity when it comes to tablets, desktops, servers and laptops while Samsung has exclusive commercial rights for smartphones and apps as the worldwide wireless communications partner.

Which means that the Korean Chaebol can't pimp its tablets as hard as it would like to but that it can do it for the S3.

It also means that we're very likely to see more Olympics-themed Apps from Samsung (Samsung has a massive apps repository called SamsungApps for BadaOS and Android) and "official London 2012 Olympics games smartphone" attached to the S3.

Oddly enough, the Samsung Galaxy Tab was adopted back in November 2010 as the 2012 London Olympics e-pamphlet ahead of the Apple iPad. The only official Olympics tablet is the Acer Iconia Tab A510 Olympics Edition.

Rival Panasonic has exclusivity on everything audiovisual (projectors, TV sets etc) while Cisco's remit includes everything network (including the IP desktop phones).

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
