Samsung Electronics expects to sell up to 25 million smartphones by the close of 2010, a significant increase to the company’s earlier estimate and due mostly to its recent allegiance to Google Android – a 7 million unit increase on its original sales target of 18 million. Samsung expects to double the number of smartphones it ships in 2011.

Earlier this week, Samsung said it had shipped more than 1 million of its Galaxy S smartphones in the U.S. The Galaxy S is Samsung’s first smartphone on the Google Android platform and will offer all of the LOCiMOBILE apps.

“We are prioritizing our Android platform. Android is very open and flexible, and there is a consumer demand for it,” YH Lee, Samsung Mobile’s head of marketing, said this week.

In the agreement, GTX Corp will make available its popular GPS Tracking apps on Samsung’s bada operating system.  The GPS Tracking apps will be featured for sale October 2010 in Samsung’s Application Store. Of the 40 million Samsung handsets anticipated to ship between now and mid-2011, 15-20 million will be the new “Scotia” models.

Samsung, the world’s second largest mobile phone manufacturer, launched its own open mobile platform, Samsung bada, in December 2009. Samsung’s mobile 235 million unit ecosystem enables developers to create applications for millions of new bada platform mobile phones. Samsung chose the name “bada”—which means “ocean” in Korean—to convey the limitless variety of potential applications that can be created with bada.

GTX Corp’s announcement follows on an 89% increase in its previous quarter’s revenues in addition to a number of software and hardware deals, including the launch of its consumer social networking portal www.gpstrackingapps.com. The company also posted its GPS Tracking app for the iPad and is launching a GPS camera app this month to its suite of LOCiMOBILE GPS apps.

Blodget says: “Apple will sell 12 million iPhones to Verizon subscribers for $7 billion”

Verizon Wireless, the largest U.S. mobile-phone company, will start selling Apple Inc.’s iPhone next year, closing out AT&T Inc.’s exclusive license on the smartphone in the U.S. – So say inside sources. Verizon could very well generate a 12 million net additional iPhone sales for Apple plus $3 in EPS per year—which isn’t included into current expectations.

In the first quarter of this year, a third of AT&T’s iPhone activations came from consumers new to the carrier. In the absence of those 900,000 new subscribers, ATT may have posted a loss in contract customers that quarter, analysts relayed.

Apple has sold more than 50 million iPhones since the smart-phone’s introduction in 2007. The latest version, iPhone 4, sold more than 1.7 million units in the first three days after its recent debut, a record for the product.

What does that mean for apps and devices running on the Android, Rim and Bada platforms? As the sophistication of these platforms and devices rises, so does the demand for their devices and downloads. More app developers will follow if for no other reason than the potential numbers. Open source is a great incentive and a competitive field provides options to those that don’t feel the love from APPL.

The greatest impact will be the inevitable migration to smart-phones which only have a 20% or so share of the total operating global devices, but show a 72% quarter on quarter increase.  We will see a further transition to data communications over voice. It may even come to pass that we drop the word “phone’ from the device vocabulary once ubiquity is achieved.

We believe that the greatest changes may not appear in devices, apps or even in the growth of revenues, but rather in the evolution of our social DNA. The opportunity for us to be aware of each others location using GPS technology in a safe, opt-in transparent fashion will forever alter our social interactions with merchants, business associates, friends, family and places…

Companies like GTX Corp and its LOCiMOBILE subsidiary, have found sincere interest for their miniaturized embedded technologies here and abroad addressing logistic, asset management, people tracking and social networking applications because everyone is asking the “where is” question and GTXO has the “where is” answer.
