I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. I hope Samsung leaves android behind and moves on with Bada or something.
    Then they can crash and burn because samsung should stick to HARDWARE not software…..then they can come crawling back to android after learning a lesson in being humble. The more I read about Samsung, the more I see them wanting to become EXACTLY like Apple. If it wasn’t for the nexus phones, I wouldn’t want any of theirs.

  2. Can we get a little more speculation on the Samsung article, seriously. Tech sites were posting the same things last year and Samsung has grown due to Android tremendously. The only competition Samsung has with Google would be the Motorola branch, but judging by the success of the Galaxy line, I don’t think Samsung is worried all that much.

    This guy lost credibility with the “Many Android fans prefer a “stock” experience…” statement. Us tech-heads might like it more, but the average user is looking for options, like those on the S3. Samsung has made a killing on the openness of Android, don’t see them pulling the plug any time soon.

    1. Keep in mind, the “average user” also isn’t really and Android fan. Android fan = fanboy or enthusiast. And those prefer to have their Android stock.

  3. Weird how Samsung wants to be like Apple. Not, who does Apple go to to make the processors for their “amazing” devices… Samsung since the first iPhone.
