Samsung shifts 500 engineers from mobile to other areas


Samsung may be focused on smartphones, but it apparently doesn't want to become a one-trick pony. The Korean tech giant has just moved 500 engineers from its mobile division to a host of other groups, including its home electronics, networking and software sections. The company says it's shuffling people around to both boost its "competitive edge" in the internet of things and "increase synergies" for the Tizen platform it primarily uses on its wearable devices. We've reached out for more details, but it's safe to say that Samsung's software priorities are changing -- it's less concerned about its problematic Tizen phone efforts and more about adding smarts to a wide range of gadgets, whether they're TVs or printers.
