JK Shin unhappy with US market share, stays loyal to Android - read the full textHot on the heels of the Galaxy S IV announcement, Samsung mobile chief J.K.Shin has spoken to WSJ, sharing his insights on the current state of the company, the smartphone market and what lays ahead for the months to come. Asked why New York was chosen for the Unpacked event, Shin...

With Tizen founded by Samsung and Intel, with Intel developing new mobile chipsets and optimising them for Android and with Android roughly equating Samsung, I'd say Tizen has no chance to gain any meaningful market share. It's already been almost 2 years since its announcement and it ships on 0 (zero) devices. If this doesn't say anything, I don't know what will.

440m USD in advertising and "Must-have-the-fastest-gadget" mindset of the young people will sell S4.
All the kudos to Samsung, they did achieve amasing results over the last couple of years, but...what's the point of 8 cores, 1080p screens in a PHONE? It's supposed to be a phone! Innovation and productivity increase...for what purpose, watching movies and playing games? Waste of time.
All this innovation is rather pointless. Smaller faster processors, great...but last time there was a power outage in our skyscraper all the electronic systems died at once.
Energy creation and energy usage - that is innovation and technical revolution. Faster handheld devices is gizmo revolution and consumerism.

Where's the loyal Bada users' updates Mr Shin? You have released a junk piece of update Bada 2.0 for S8500 and then left Bada to die. You must release Tizen for Wave phones (at least the flagship ones Wave 1,2 & 3).

I'm sure Lumia 920 is still more innovative than this when it comes to it's hardware.. Poor Nokia got its marketing mix wrong.

A blunt stick is more innovative.

I agree with Mr. Shin. Just two comments. a) Why galaxy s4 is only in white and black colors? Please release attractive colors such as purple, blue, etc. This will speed up the sales on startup. Add marketing!. b) Bada and Tizen are not good eco-system, very limited. Android will be the king for NEXT 5 years, in the top1 ranking.
