Samsung’s Galaxy Gear S Smartwatch coming to Jamaica while reppin’ for Tizen

When I’d been called to the Samsung Launch Event that was held at their Samsung Experience Store in Tropical Plaza in Half-Way-Tree on Thursday October 16th 2014, my thoughts were that this was just a launch for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 as summarized in my article Samsung Launches quartet of Note-worthy Products to Tab into the Gear S Alpha in all Jamaicans! So I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 wasn’t the only star of the show. In fact, when the four (4) products being launched were announced, the Samsung Galaxy Gear S (“S” stands for “Solo”) was mentioned as one of the two (2) main flagship products that would be on sale by Friday October 24th 2014.

Don’t cry over spilt Samsung Milk as Samsung Galaxy S5 and smartwatches disappoint

'Tis a lesson you should heed: Try, try, try again. If at first you don't succeed, Try, try, try again. Thomas H. Palme in ‘Teacher's Manual’ So here goes my rant against Samsung! Samsung had launched their Samsung Galaxy S5 along with the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Samsung Galaxy Gear Neo 2 smartwatch updates on Saturday February 22nd 2014 with much noise but little fanfare from fans.  Right now it’s looking like Samsung has either lost their innovation mojo or they really are coasting on empty here! A reason why it took all my courage to even write about this, as they’re barely trying this time to hide their lack of innovation. Interestingly, and as I’d expected, the wristwatches were of course the innovation here to a point, sporting a much improved battery life and other nice...
