Nokia to ditch Samsung as supplier?


An interesting report cropped up this weekend, claiming Nokia to drop Samsung as a supplier for some of its device’s components. The report comes via Apple Insider whose source claims that in addition to Apple, Nokia is also distancing themselves from Samsung.

Samsung’s dual role – one of a component maker and another as competitor – has made companies including Nokia wary about Samsung copying their technology and in their own devices.

Samsung in the past has maintained that the components subsidiary treats Samsung Electronics as just another business customer and has a strict internal firewall to avoid leaks but the site’s source claims the firewall is “about as sturdy as a pile of kimchi.”

The source also alleged Samsung to acquire orders of next-gen components and cancelling them, only to find the hardware in Samsung phones.

When you see a Samsung (certain specialized new design for) OLED phone as you surely will, you are looking at something that was stolen from Nokia.

Samsung has been under a lot of scrutiny after Apple alleged Samsung to copy their iPhone and iPad.
