Samsung rules the Android consumer smartphone market and is also working hard to become the provider of choice for the enterprise too, with initiaves like Knox and SAFE. Samsung announced their Samsung Solutions Exchange program that is designed to help enterprise customers deliver custom mobile solutions with access to over 1,000 APIs.

Through Samsung Solutions Exchange, developers will gain access to unique Galaxy features such as Air Gesture, Air View, Advanced Mult-Window, WatchOn IR controller, S Pen functionality, and more. This should allow healthcare providers, government agencies, and educational institutions the ability to have enhanced mobile experiences on Samsung products.

Enhanced applications will likely include software with forms, other data collection apps, documents that require digital signatures, point-of-sale apps, and other communication tools.

I was a huge fan of the Note II and just ordered a Note 3 from Negri Electronics (full price was less than T-Mobile's own price). There are many great Android devices, but as I look at Samsung's growing ecosystem and all of the great enhancements to the Note 3 with the S Pen and more I decided to go back to a large phone that does it all for me.
