Samsung is calling upon developers and partners far and wide to meet up with the South Korean tech-giant in Berlin this August at the IFA.  Aside from the demos and flashy presentations, what else can entice people to register for the event?

Samsung is calling upon developers and partners far and wide to meet up with the South Korean tech-giant in Berlin this August at the IFA.  Aside from the demos and flashy presentations, what else can entice people to register for the event?

Samsung’s next big consumer electronics launch includes the Galaxy Note II and the Windows RT tablet.  The Galaxy Note II is the successor to the popular smartphone-tablet hybrid Note, and rumors have led many to believe that the Note II will launch some time this fall—hence, the IFA will be a perfect event to show off the highly anticipated device. 

While many OEMs are not too thrilled about Microsoft launching the Surface, Samsung is taking the OEM-Surface disagreement in strides.  Samsung will launch their Windows RT tablet alongside Microsoft’s Surface (or within the same time frame).

Many of us have at least glanced at the Surface tablet during Microsoft’s mysterious “announcement” phase, so we know what type of product to expect.  Again, the IFA will be a perfect event for Samsung to show how their Windows RT tablet may trump the Surface. 

Registration for the event runs from July 12 to July 29, and prior announcements will be on August 1.  D-day will take place in Berlin on August 30 from 2 PM to 6 PM local time.
