Samsung's Galaxy S4 launch had a bevy of services and features and played to the business technology crowd. The Galaxy S4 will be the first device to ship with Samsung's Knox technology, which like BlackBerry aims to divide your personal and work lives.
The Korean electronics giant launched Knox at the Mobile World Congress. The Galaxy S4 also comes with Samsung's SAFE technology, which is designed to make Android secure enough for the enterprise. SAFE stands for Samsung Approved For Enterprise.
Ryan Bidan, director of product marketing for Samsung Telecommunication America, talked up Knox as part of an overall effort to add value to customer lives. The Radio City presentation was largely designed to plug Samsung innovation as well as the company's services over Apple's as well as Google's Android.
The Galaxy S4 launch appears to be designed to highlight multiple facets of a person's life---work and pleasure.
Another potentially useful business tool is the Galaxy S4's S Translator, which would be handy for international travel.
