Samsung to open R&D facility on Nokia's turf, report says
The new facility for the Galaxy S maker is apparently set to open in Espoo, Finland, on June 13, and will focus on "advanced technologies."
Samsung, which has been fighting an often-forgotten war in the feature phone space against Nokia, has fired a shot over the bow of the Finland-based company.
According to a report on Androidbeat, which includes an invitation claiming to come from Samsung for an event it's holding in Finland, the Galaxy S maker is planning to open a research and development facility in Espoo, Finland, on June 13. And here's the kicker: Espoo is also home to Nokia's headquarters.
The letter Androidbeat reportedly received is signed by Yong-Suk Moon, president of the Samsung R&D Institute UK. In that letter, he says that the facility will be home to research and development in the area of "advanced technologies." He didn't specify what that might mean.
