Samsung/Smartthings at IFA 2015


(Kevin Tierney) #1

Samsung’s pre-IFA press conference is scheduled for 11am Berlin time (5am EST) on tomorrow, Sept 3rd. I wonder what Smart Things related stuff we’ll see

Alex tweeted this today

There is a teaser video related to IoT, without too many hints

It sounds like the stream will be viewable here http://global.samsungtomorrow.com/

Oh and then there’s this interaction. Sounds like the update with the new ui for the ST app is due on the same day

As Engadget put it, if Samsung spent so much money on IFA, and pushed everything out of the way (already announced flagship phablets, s2 watch) it must be a HUGE event for Smartthings and IoT.

Is that the new Smartthings app I see on the right?

Cool. So do we think it will be interesting enough to warrant waking up bright and early to watch the live stream?


(Brian Smith) #4

Can I catch the rerun, instead? :slight_smile:


(Bobby) #5

Not for me, but it will surely make it a good read while drinking my morning coffee!

I hear there will be a special deal announced for existing Customers: The new mobile App will be free while quantities last.

HI! if ANYONE is here at Berlin! come stop by :slight_smile: . I’ll be around, and would love to meet you!

Cheers.


(Bobby) #8

If I stop by, can I get a better deal on my V2 hub pre-order :slight_smile:


#9

I’m guessing such an exclusive offer will only last half the day, and by exclusive of course I mean open to anyone with Internet access.

How British of you :smiley:

Have fun at the show!

Also, PICS!!! It’s always great being at a trade show before it opens to the public as it’s a lot quieter… maybe some sneak peaks/teasers :smiley:

I am totally lost how to get to Berlin! :wink:

Don’t get me started on how many names from back home you steal and use over here in the US :smiley:

Is that a Beagle? :dog: :smile:


(Bobby) #17

Only you could find a picture of a dog at IFA…

As I was scrolling through the pictures, that was my first thought too… I thought maybe you were getting some special recognition or something.


(April Wong) #19

That’s our homage to you. <3
