Samsung: What Music Store?
from the jedi-mind-trick dept
All that stuff on Monday about Samsung wanting to open an “iTunes for Asia”? A bunch of malarkey, apparently. Even though the head of the company’s digital media business said the company was planning such a service — and the company later confirmed the remarks — the exec now says it was all a big misunderstanding. What he really meant was that Samsung will offer technical support to its online partners like Microsoft, Napster and Yahoo to try to make their music-player software as good as iTunes. It’s some big backtracking, which may lead to questions of whether Apple — which buys all that flash memory from Samsung — had something to say about the plans.
