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.

Priviledging Motorolla is not enough to fend off challenges for Google.
They do need to increase the value of the 'real Android ecosystem',
to prevent all it's best parts, including application library, from being siphoned off.
If they can find other vendors who are willing to play along with Android,
they can pursue a 'Real Android' ecosystem which the best development resources will go into,
and which has separate licences that exclude companies like Samsung who just want to use overly permissive licences like base Android to feed into their own proprietary projects.
