Earlier today, we learned that Samsung had bested Nokia on its home turf by claiming the lion's share of phone sales in Finland last quarter, but its invasion of Nokia's territory won't end there. Samsung will soon unveil a new research hub in Espoo, Finland, and a company rep confirmed that the center will open its doors on June 13th. Though specifics about the nature of research are being kept under wraps, a recent job posting from Oikotie revealed what could be the center's name: Samsung Electronics Research Institute. SERI could potentially be related to Samsung's partnership with Finland's VTT Technical Research Center, announced last month, to explore energy efficient technologies. Beyond that, details are sparse, but we'll keep you posted as more information on Samsung's latest R&D endeavor trickles in.
