Samsung begins selling smartphones directly through website in EU

Samsung has launched a redesign of its website in Europe and with it has started selling its Android devices directly from the site. The company previously linked to other retailers and carriers, as it continues to do in the US, but now most EU countries also have the ability to add products to a cart and purchase directly from the website.

In the US, samsung.com continues to link to AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and websites of smaller carriers for its smartphones, but it does provide the ability to buy other devices direct from the website such as tablets.

The ability to purchase appears to be available in most EU countries, but you can visit samsung.com to check availability and prices in your country.

PSA: The shiny new LG G Watch smartwatch is now shipping

Google’s official on-stage announcement of the Android Wear platform lead to much excitement from all kinds of technology enthusiasts, and the device went up for sale on the Play Store that very same day. Devices ordered before today were quoted as “leaving the warehouse” on July 3rd, and it appears that Google is following through with that promise. Now, buyers are being quoted “1-2 business days.”

Also worth noting is that today’s launch of the G Watch was paired with the seeding of the KMV78V update. While we aren’t quite sure exactly what changed with this update, there are surely general fixes to prep the device for public availability.
