PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Yesterday, during the most insane launch event in the history of technology, Samsung unveiled its next big flagship, the Galaxy S4. I really couldn't care less about this new phone - another plastic phone that looks exactly like its predecessor - but the flurry of interviews with Samsung executives that followed is far more interesting. With them, Samsung has repositioned Tizen - and if you connect the dots, something interesting is starting to appear.

Yeah it "runs android apps" But that's different from shipping with google play.

The same apps that I hear about from friends that haven't converted to a tizen won't show up in whatever app store.

Some people will have problems with that. Sales guys at the cell stores will get confused, and eventually stop trying to sell them ( like they did with windows 7 phones).

Despite those problems, I'm pretty sure the event yesterday proved to me that samsung is stupid enough to do it. That was a lot of marketing hype for such little substance. And to think that they'll probably repeat it for tizen! crazy.
