STAGE TUBE: Samsung Galaxy Gear Stopwatch Coming 9/4
Earlier today, Samsung's executive vice president of mobile Lee Young-hee revealed in an interview that the Samsung Galaxy Gear Stopwatch will hit shelves on September 4.
Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-chul in 1938 as a trading company. Over the next three decades the group diversified into areas including food processing, textiles, insurance, securities and retail. Samsung entered theelectronics industry in the late 1960s and the construction and shipbuilding industries in the mid-1970s; these areas would drive its subsequent growth.
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.
