Samsung attempts to tackle the US PC Market.
Samsung, if I am not mistaken, already supplies parts to both HP and Dell. I remember having an HP printer in the U.S. that was really a Samsung, with an HP sticker placed on top of the Samsung logo.
So my question is, even if Samsung is able to break in to the U.S. market, will HP and Dell still use Samsung, their direct competitor, as a parts supplier? And if not, who will they go to? (Toshiba perhaps?… or maybe they could start making the parts locally, thus creating American jobs?)
Unquestionably, as far as monitors and tablet PCs go, Samsung has the upper hand over the American companies. I think that Samsung ought to be a little more careful though, and perhaps expand into more areas where Dell and HP have not.
The article says that Samsung is huge in Europe. Maybe it’s time to move into Canada and Mexico before taking on the U.S. giants?
I don’t know, what do you think?
