Samsung merges divisions and shakes up executive ranks
The lines between
, and digital cameras are being further blurred with each new gadget release. Many of the smartphones on the market today are capable of replacing point and shoot cameras in functionality and image quality.
In an effort to help leverage synergies between its wireless operations and imaging divisions, Samsung has announced an in-house merger. Samsung has merged its Digital Imaging Business Division and its Wireless Business Division. Samsung hopes the move will help it capture a bigger chunk of the global mirrorless camera market by 2015. Samsung announced the reorganization of divisions on December 11.

People who care about taking good pictures with their phones buy Nokias anyway, but maybe this means Samsung is taking that market more seriously now.
