“Samsung is targeting over 40M unit sales in this category next year, according to mobile division chief Shin Jong-kyun. He told the Nikkei business daily that Samsung is targeting 20M smartphone sales worldwide this year and double that figure in 2011. Both forecasts are improvements on Samsung‟s original goal, articulated when it unveiled Galaxy S, when it said it would sell 18M this year.”

3D printers, one-dimensional enemies
The VAR Guy
Bill Ray explains how 3D printers work.

“3D printers work in a similar way to ink-jet printers, but squirt drops of molten plastic instead of ink. When one layer has been finished the head lifts slightly and deposits another layer, building up a 3D model complete with cavities, but without overhangs (as these would have to be suspended in the air while the connections were laid down). The technology is mostly used for creating prototypes of products that are manufactured using a cheaper process such as injection moulding, but as 3D printers get cheaper they can replace the moulding process and allow anyone to make small items in their own shed – such as replacement parts for things they’ve bought.”
