Samsung is in direct competition to Apple regarding smartphones and lately it overnumbered the latter by sales of its smartphone. Now Samsung has introduced a music service similar to the popular iTunes service by Apple.
Both services, iTunes by Apple and the Samsung Music Hub, have both great simalarities and differences. In common is the idea of a proprietary portal with music downloads being optimized to the own range of devices. But already the availability is different by iTunes being a software and the Samsung Music Hub being available by web browser on the internet. Up to now by the way Samsung already provided another similar software being able to manage music and synchronize a smartphone with computers, which is called Kies.
The differences of the both applications or services beside others consist in a music flatrate available by Samsung, something not being available on iTunes. Opposed to this up to now personally there has no way being found to submit podcasts neither to the Kies software nor any information on the Samsung Music Hub has been found to do so. Furthermore there is another essential difference, beside smartphones the new service is available to other network devices manufactured by Samsung like tablet computers, blue-ray players, home theatre systems and the latest generation of smart tv sets, which have similar app functionalities like smartphones.
By this the Samsung Music Hub at all is an interesting application to music lovers as well as it will become an important hub to offer and provide music. Further information is provided by a site, which seems to be temporary by the term teaser being included in the url: Samsung Music Hub.
