Galaxy Fold Launches…NOT!
Trending News: Friday, April 26th – Samsung Delays Sales of the “Bendable Phone”
Just when you thought it was safe to…well, you know the rest.
Amidst much fanfare and huge anticipation, the heralded Galaxy Bendable Phone has proven to be imperfect. There were enough functional issues earlier this week to prompt Samsung executives to take some pretty drastic action.
The rumors started last Monday, April 22nd with an initial report from the Wall Street Journal. This little bird then told two friends, and they told two friends, and so on, and so on… By the time the dust settled and the press releases were complete, the entire April 26 worldwide launch extravaganza was summarily cancelled.
Pre-Sales Still Honored
During the previous months, Samsung came up with what they thought was a brilliant idea. They “pre-sold” units with a company sponsored webpage and reservation system. The goal was to appease the restless natives while they continued to wait impatiently for their prize.
But alas, the whole thing tumbled like a house of cards much to the shock and chagrin of Samsung’s competitors. These arch enemies have been given even more time to try and match the technology of our hero Samsung. Will the arch enemies mount a counter attack? Will Samsung be able to hold off their rivals? Will our hero defeat their foes?
The suspense is killing me…I hope it lasts!
Meantime, we all will just need to wait with amused skepticism as the fighters enter the ring. The fight’s been postponed, but soon we will have satisfaction…
The Fiasco and Suspense Continues… All Aboard!
The whole fiasco looks like an episode of “Petticoat Junction” with rumors flying in all directions. Remember that show?
Well, you can also express this situation even better with this: Hee Haw!
“We’re not ones to go ‘round spreading rumors,
Why really we’re just not the gossiping kind,
Oh you’ll never hear one of us repeating gossip,
So you better be sure and listen close the first time!”
I love that song!
What’s Next in All This?
For now, the best information I have shows that Samsung is going to wait until at least May after several bad reviews came back. They simply need more time to get the major bugs out.
As Samsung is working on this, you will be sure to see a whole lot of talking going on between the giants of the worldwide mobile device market. And this battle is just the beginning…
Remember that company Huawei? This monster has already finished most of its design and test for their new bendable phone – the foldable “Mate”. Sources claim it does everything the Galaxy Fold does and way more. They have even made it their corporate mission and goal for 2019 to overtake Samsung at all costs! This is getting good folks.
Random Thought, “Mate”
Well “mate”, let’s all sit back an enjoy this one. My sources show that Huawei has tapped into a capital base twice the size of Samsung! If this is to be believed, they must have an amazingly creative accounting department…Or, they are filtering cash from other dubious resources that shall remain undisclosed for the author’s safety.
