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.

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.


And that's based on what? Pure speculation? Look, people don't buy mobile operating systems. That's a minor branding thing, and I think you're overemphasizing the OS because, like the rest of us, you're a geek. People buy phones. Samsung rules them all. If Samsung comes out with a phone that looks, feels, sounds, and works like Android -- but isn't Android -- people won't care one bit.
