Looking out for the developing world

Samsung President Stephen Woo on stage at the annual Consumer Electronics Show. Woo tells the audience the talk will focus on three areas: advances in processing, how new memory solutions are speeding up response times, and display technology with new form factors.

Woo tells the audience at CES that there are more than 6 billion mobile devices in use and more than half a billion smartphones sold -- and as people become more attached to these devices, they want more things. Today's devices are all about ease of use and experience, he says.
