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.

No, I'm not. But it seems the lack of people letting themselves be locked into a single "official" app store applies equally to iOS, not just Android.

But again, just going by what I've read. no personal experience. I need to ask some of my Chinese students about this.


As I said - barely usable is a compliment for Google.
Chinese can't use Google's services to their full extent practically, even if they want to. As a result the Chinese counterparts(while being inferior in reality) are much more functional than anything Google.
It has little to do with preference for no lock-in, it's more about preference for functional.
