PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Google is growing increasingly concerned with Samsung's dominance of the Android - and smartphone - landscape. Supposedly, the topic is being openly discussed at Google, and as far as I'm concerned, that's great news.

Not gonna happen the way you wish

The moment Samsung ditches Android, people switch to another manufacturer. While more time passes Android users are becoming more tied to the platform, knowing or not if it is Android, be it applications, Google services, etc, like iOS users that are tied to their App Store applications. Do you think people will switch to Linux if the big PC OEMs ditch Windows for Linux? Not gonna happen, people will switch to the next one that gives them Windows.

When an OS reach the kind of numbers Android and Windows have, no change on the OEMs will make big change in numbers, this kind of changes only happen when the new competitor innovates so much that people change.
