From a start up to a giant killer : Samsung's Rise to a Giant Killer has today become " a Must to do "case study at the premier business s schools:

 For two decades now, Samsung has been " using "  Western business practices onto its essentially Japanese system, combining its traditional low-cost manufacturing prowess with an ability to bring high-quality, high-margin branded products swiftly to market
Twenty years ago, Samsung was just a me too start up  with interests in Food processing , textiles and insurance .

Today Samsung has a powerful influence on South Korea's economic development. Its affiliate companies produce around a fifth of South Korea's total exports. Samsung's revenue was equal to 17% of the South Korea's $1,082 billion GDP
In 2013, Samsung began construction on building the world's largest mobile phone factory in the Thai Nguyen province of Vietnam

Today  few people would have predicted that Samsung could transform itself from a low-cost original equipment manufacturer to a world leader in R&D, marketing, and design, with a brand more valuable than Pepsi, Nike, or American Express.

Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-chul in 1938 as a trading company, and its only in 1960 . Samsung entered the electronics industry. Following Lee's death in 1987, Samsung was separated into four business groups – Samsung Group, Shinsegae Group, CJ Group and Hansol Group. Since the 1990s Samsung has increasingly globalized its activities, and electronics, particularly mobile phones and semiconductors, have become its most important source of income.

Smartphones Research and Development less that Patent War Costs

If you manage to count the number of patent and lawsuits the Tech industry is fighting amongst themselves, probably you might continue to count them.. forever

Apple vs Samsung vs HTC vs RIM vs Microsoft : Its a battle that never shows sounds of ending , no mater how much money goes down fighting these battles.

Why does this happen, what are the kind of odds that one company might win and control 80% of the entire patent the tech industry has ... The chances are well 50: 50.Indeed, according to this Time magazine article, Apple and Google spent more money on patent litigation than research and development last year.

It is no surprise to anyone that Apple and are rivals. The duo have been involved in lawsuits in many different countries worldwide. Although the majority of courts have sided with Apple, the war is far from over. So who is copying whom?

RPX estimates that there are 250,000 active U.S. patents applicable to the smartphone. Assuming an average of 20 claims each, that is 5,000,000 restrictions on smartphone innovation.( RPX : stands for Reduce Patient Litigation costs)

Not surprisingly Smart phone patents account for 16 percent of active patents in the U.S, using RPX estimates.

Total Growth Year-over-Year %                                           86.5%     44.4%

Strategy Analytics says Samsung "shipped" 28 million smartphones versus Apple's 17.1 million.

So  has The Age of  Aplple’s iPhone come to an end Finally ? Samsung is the world's biggest smartphone dealer, beating Apple soundly in the third quarter of this year, according to data compiled by Strategy Analytics.
 According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global smartphone shipments grew 44 percent annually to reach a record 117 million units in the third quarter of 2011. Samsung overtook Apple to claim top spot as the world's number one smartphone vendor.
Tiny caveat by BusinessInsider report : In its earnings release Apple says it sold 17.1 million smartphones. We don't think Samsung is stuffing 11 million smartphones in the channel to take the top spot, but it's worth making a note of the distinction in language.
Samsung shipped 28 million Smartphones and overtook Apple to become the world's largest smartphone vendor by volume with 24 percent market share. Samsung's rise has been driven by a blend of elegant hardware designs, popular Android services, memorable sub-brands and extensive global distribution. Samsung has demonstrated that it is possible, at least in the short term, to differentiate and grow by using the Android Ecosystem
According to Strategy Analytics, "After just one quarter in the top spot, Apple slipped behind Samsung to second position and captured 15 percent share. Apple's global smartphone growth rate slowed to just 21 percent annually in Q3 2011, its lowest level for two years. 
"Nokia reached 14 percent global smartphone share in Q3 2011, more than halving from 33 percent in Q3 2010. The transition from Symbian to Microsoft as Nokia's main smartphone platform has clearly been a very challenging process this year. The recent launch of the new Microsoft Lumia portfolio has helped to raise Nokia's profile, and Nokia will be hoping the partnership with Microsoft can drive at least an L-shaped recovery in its global smartphone market share over the next few months."
