Samsung launched the Z1, the company's first ever Tizen based smartphone, earlier this month and there are some contrasting reports about how it's doing. Just last week, Reuters said that the handset was struggling to find its feet in India, where it is exclusively available at the moment. A new report this week from Business Korea is contradicting that and saying the Samsung Z1 is actually doing well.Business Korea's report comes direct from Samsung too, with Asim Warsi, vice president of Mobile and Information Technology at Samsung India. He said that "the sales volume of the Z1 exceeded our expectations". In India the press is reporting that the actual figure for sales is 50,000 Z1 units in just 10 days since its launch. Sure, that's not an amazing figure in the grand scheme, but for a low end device running on a new platform, it is a good start.
