Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, the world's biggest mobile phone maker, unveiled new versions of its Galaxy Note smartphone on Wednesday after previous design miscues cost it customers in the large-screen phone market it pioneered.
Samsung’s smart wristwatch launch next month is expected to set off new battle following wrangles with Apple Inc over smartphones and tablets.
Canalys told Bloomberg that Apple's market share in China plunged to just 5% during the second quarter, down from last year's 9%.
According to analysts, Apple should focus on the growing smartphone markets like China and India.
According to research firm Canalys, the shipments for Android-based tablets exceeded the consignments for iPads from Apple Inc in the second quarter.
The price cut in Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet would apply in several countries, but not in the UK.
