Has Samsung got its own mobile browser on the way?
Well this is quite an interesting little piece of news we have here. The guys over at CNET are apparently reporting that Samsung may in fact be in the early stages of developing their own web browser – astonishing, really.
According to reports surfacing from Korea, Samsung is reportedly looking for WebKit developers for its own mobile browser. WebKit is an open source engine that Apple’s Safari and Google’s Chrome browsers are based on. Yes, Samsung is not only heavily competing in the hardware and software markets, but are also looking to get in on the web-browsing part of smartphones.
Let’s be honest here. This would be an incredibly difficult market for Samsung to crack and would take loads of experience. However, if Samsung bets on most users feeling comfortable to stay with the stock browser on the phone, an ‘S-Browser’ may not be such a bad idea. If it’s good enough and users aren’t looking for something else, then what will bring them over to the likes of Chrome, Firefox and Opera. Well, what besides for the mountains of awesome features the others already provide.
This is an interesting one we have right here and we’ll be keeping a close eye on it. Of course, as with any rumour, take this with a grain of salt!
