Slashgear reports: “Hardware company Samsung today has been revealed to have acquired one of the single most notorious names in Android modification , that being Steve Kondik,aka “Cyanogen” of CyanogenMod 7.” Could Samsung be planning to start working on a highly modified version of Android?

Samsung already does their touchwiz thing. I tried it out on a Droid Charge, and it was pretty horrendous (as most Android vendor bloatware is), so Samsung needs all the help they can get

now its going to be a hard decicion which device will be my next android phone. i use a SGS with CM7 atm and am pretty happy with it now, however, if google aquires moto i thought it will be a motorola device since u can bet an arm and a leg that there the update policy will be best in android world, but then if steve (cyanogen) does for samsung what he does best, then updates for samsung phones will be at least as fast as motorola. and hardwarewise samsung has always been a winner for me.
