The South Korean tech giant reports that sales of its Windows-based laptops and Chromebooks will stop in Europe.

"Samsung is doing this in order to adapt to the demand and the evolution of the market ', says Koen Dekoning, Corporate Communications Manager at Samsung Electronics Benelux BV. "We are focusing now on tablets that can replace laptops through a wide product line of accessories such as a keyboards and mice."

"The stop of laptop sales is specific to Europe and not to other markets," he emphasizes. "The fact that we stop laptops and Chromebooks has no effect on the number of employees. The people who dealt so far with these products remain active in the mobile team."
