Samsung’s Mobile Music and E-book Services Will Be Pulled Out in the Market

 

In the most recent report, Samsung pull out its music and e-Book services starting July 1.  This is part of Samsung Electronics’ struggle to provide new and exciting apps for its users.

 

The organization didn’t explain further on the reason behind the move but they said that it is “striving for service differentiation and customer value enhancement.” Samsung will stay focused in giving an extensive variety of content to clients through its own and partnered services, a company spokesman said by email.  This doesn’t affect the company’s newly launched Milk music streaming service in the U.S.

 

The arranged shutdown leaves the Samsung Hub, the organization’s “multimedia content store,” with only three sorts of available content: education, video and gaming. The organization refused to comment on whether the remaining services will have the same ending.

 

Samsung Hub was propelled as a piece of the organization’s driven push to bait clients to its own particular programming yet it has neglected to  pick up much footing as comparable administrations and substance are accessible for clients through diverse channels and application engineers.

 

In March a year ago, the organization promoted Samsung Hub as its “integrated” content service that gives the majority of the five things – music, features, books, diversions and taking in substance. Samsung Hub was fundamentally made to market and sell more Galaxy S4 cell phones which were released a few months back then. Galaxy S4 was preloaded with Samsung Hub.

 

Only to find out that Samsung Hub did not come preloaded on the Galaxy S5, the succeeding model to the Galaxy S4.  Based on the statement given by Samsung’s spokesperson, “Our services will remain available as individual apps rather than in one, single bundled storefront.” In addition, current clients of the Samsung Hub through the Galaxy S4 telephone will still be able to access the service.

 

Those who are in Korea, they get an additional reward: both the music and digital book service will  continue to work for users in Korea. According to Gartner, an examination firm, that Samsung represented 66.1% of South Korea’s cell phone advertises in 2013, with Apple representing only 7.6%.

 

One of the biggest challenges for the South Korean company is having its own software content knowing that its expertise involves hardware production. Experts say that Samsung should focus on some selected items such as gaming.
