Samsung is aiming to sell one lakh Galaxy Note devices in India by the end of this year. I would say that is a pretty steep target for a device priced at INR 34,999 and is huge as per smartphone standards.
Samsung India launched its smartphone/tablet hybrid Galaxy Note in India day before yesterday at a press event in Delhi, and Ranjit Yadav, head of Samsung Mobile in India stated at this event that his company is looking to sell 100,000 units of the device in next 55 odd days. This is not the only target company has to achieve in 2011. Samsung is also looking to upstage Nokia to become top smartphone vendor in the country.
Samsung is targeting 40 pc of the Indian smartphone market share by the end of this year. In terms of smartphones, this Korean giant sells its Android powered Galaxy series smartphones, and Bada phones in the country. Both kinds of devices have been liked by the consumers in India and with its growing smartphone portfolio, company might be able to take the top spot, but chances selling 100,000 Galaxy Note devices still look bleak to me.
