The Biggest Threat for Samsung's Smartphone

In the following video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner discusses one big upcoming potential threat to Samsung's rollout of its newest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S IV. He tells investors that while demand is very high for the new handset, that can be as much a blessing as a curse, as the company was plagued with supply-chain issues meeting demand on its last major rollout. He also tells investors what the key phone components will be to watch, to know whether the company will be able to keep up this time.

Google also stands to win big from the new device, because of its Android mobile operating system. As one of the most dominant Internet companies ever, Google has made a habit of driving strong returns for its shareholders. However, like many other Web companies, it's also struggling to adapt to an increasingly mobile world. Despite gaining an enviable lead with its Android operating system, the market isn't sold. That's why it's more important than ever to understand each piece of Google's sprawling empire.
