The New iPad Hits South Korea And Samsung's Pride
Above you can see people lining up for blocks to buy the new iPad. Nothing unusual here you say? Well, actually there is, because...... this time the line up is in South Korea, and, yes, the same South Korea that is home to the electronic giant Samsung, and, yes, also the very same Samsung that is locked in many legal and costly battles with Apple for doing so!
A little while back it was reported that Apple's now iconic iPad was beating Samsung in its very own back yard and the above video clearly backs up and proves that in spades. It's now believed that Apple's iPad accounts for as much as up to 80% of all tablet sales in this very patriotic nation. Now that has got to hit were it hurts the most... Samsung's pride.
In conclusion, even though Samsung is now well known for copying just about every little detail it can from Apple's own playbook, the one thing that it can't seem to copy is the same enthusiasm and love from its own countrymen that they have for the iPad!
And that's my 2 cents 4 this rainy Monday, April 23, 2012.
