PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This past week and this weekend I've finally found the time to enter into the colorful world of custom Android ROMs. After figuring out just how insanely great and awesome ClockWorkMod Recovery is, I set about to figure out what the best Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is for the Galaxy SII. While the answer to that question became clear quite quickly, this answer also gave rise to a whole bunch of other questions.

"Differentiate with hardware instead."

That does not make sence from the manufacturer point of view. When you are Samsung you want your clients to interface with "Samsung" not "Google". Especially on touch screen devices, software is the king. If you depend on the stock "Google" interface you make your self vulnerable to competitors with higher manufacturing capacity willing to undercut you at the price level.

There is a reason why Apple is able to command such a high premium for their devices. It is the same reason Microsoft is thriving while PC hardware manufacturers are struggling.
