Samsung Electronics to split activites between Consumer Electronics and Components


The company also plans a Digital Media and Communications division to be headed by Choi Gee-sung, bringing together under one umbrella televisions, mobile phones and other consumer electronics such as printers, computers and home appliances, according to Samsung spokesman James Chung.
It is unclear to which division will belong the photo division (sensor maker vs. consumer electronics) but it still means that many things will change. Maybe for the best (The photo division being more independent, it may be active more in DSLR) or for the worse (it may stop completely investments in DSLR to save money)
