Chi Youngcho, head of the recently created digital media and
communications unit at Samsung Electronics, recently hinted at a few
new products on a quarter-end conference call with analysts. First up
was the mention of a few new handsets, with the executive stating that
"in the first half of this year, it will expand its lineup [of
touchscreen phones] and upgrade some of the functions including the
user interface." Potentially more intriguing was the mention of
"various OSes [that would] satisfy the diverse needs of customers." We
already knew that Samsung was a proud member of the Open Handset
Alliance, and rumors have already swirled around an Android-based
mobile arriving in the second quarter of 2009. With this, we now have
all the more reason to cautiously anticipate.

In other news, Mr. Youngcho made clear that Samsung was aiming to
"expand its PC business by launching a new netbook." Unfortunately, he
failed to elaborate while on the phone, though it's widely expected
that the forthcoming machine will be the NC20 -- the natural successor
to the highly stylish NC10.
