Samsung S Cloud rumored to battle the Apple iCloud

Samsung is rumored to build their own cloud services for the Galaxy devices.

The Apple competitors getting their cloud plans in order. Last week Acer bought a cloud service company called iGWare. Today the Korea Times mentions in a story about the Samsung Mobile President Shin Jong-kyun that Samsung is intensifying their software investment and that they plan to build the S Cloud. An unnamed Samsung executive is quoted saying: "The so-called S cloud could be an answer to Appleā€™s iCloud. We need our own Web-based cloud platform for balanced corporate growth in the world of smartphones and software."

I am a bit puzzled that Google is not acting more aggressively on the Apple iCloud challenge. Google has basically all services needed. They just need to package them together and integrate them into Android. Samsung and other Android phone vendors could just use the Google cloud services and be done with it.

All eyes will be on Samsung on July 29 when the release their Q2 FY2011 earnings. The number of sold smartphones will determine if Apple or Samsung will be the new largest smartphone seller on the planet. Apple just took over the lead from Nokia.
