Samsung Mobiles which was once having a very minor share of the handset market in India now has a share of about 10-15% according to country head of Samsung India , Sunil Dutt. Its interesting to note that Sunil was part of the top brass in Nokia India a couple of years back. Good news for Samsung fans, the company plans to launch over 7 new models in India in July and August including the hugely awaited Omnia HD

After the high profile launch of the Samsung Omnia in India a few days ago, Samsung Pixon has now been launched officially. Although there is no word on the official India launch yet, one can be sure it will make its way to us, “the fastest growing Mobile market of the world.”
