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.

Pull a BB10?

If samsung can pull a BB10 with Tizen, users literally wouldnt notice. BB10 runs native android applications. Those who didnt go through the whole BB10/Playbook Android support cycle, missed some interesting things.

Before Blackberry/RIM put the lockdown on the system, you could install google play (or amazon store) and install apps directly (this was also pre-single window, if i remember correctly).

Samsung doesnt have to be as strict and allow the amazon marketplace as well as folks so inclined to sideload the google play app.

Though then the question this raises the question why move from android in the first place?
