Samsung is expanding like swallowing all the rivals. Chairman Mr.Lee's nickname is South Korea's number two behind the Korean president who is number one. Well, his company Samsung Electronics is already a global number one in electronics industry though. Survival of the fittest.. bloody.. so bloody..

"Samsung Group revenues account for about 20 percent of South Korea's 1,200 trillion won annual GDP" If this is correct it is a stunning fact. A company with 350,000 employees accounts for 20% of GDP of a country with 50 million?

At least they are really focusing $$$ and manpower on that area instead of trying to do innovation on a shoestring budget or via skunk works projects. If successful the payoff is big.

Their early investment in LCD display market proved to be very wise, and I would think that they are also looking forward with OLED technology replacing LCD in the next few years. Having both product areas enables them to retain market share. While one is ramped up, the other can be ramped down.

Investment in the future is always good as long as the predicted future ends up being the actual one! OLED displays seems like a winner...
