Samsung Dev ConA couple of weeks back Samsung announced that it'll be holding its first developer conference in San Francisco this October 27-29. Today the company is sending out emails to those who pre-registered for the event, letting them know that registration proper will begin next Friday, Aug. 16, at 9 a.m. ET (6 a.m. PT.)

Samsung says the conference will span "mobile, Smart TV, connected devices and more" — and with new Samsung phones, tablets and even wearables likely to arrive between now and late October, there should be plenty to cover.
