Let suppose android will become a "close" os like wp or ios available only for Motorola devices.
Android is google TM with part developped under GNU PL.
What is Samsung or other company who sell android smartfones without Android Google Trademark. Nothing. Samsung is prudent in developping his own os.
Samsung's future is Tizen, not Android:
You guys are just kidding.
The actual reason is, 90% of revenue of android is goes to Samsung only. The actual manufacturer GOOGLE gets just 10% only. To solve this problem Google BOUGHT MOTOROLA mobility.
And last year Google had promised that android will be open source for next 5 year's. If android becomes closed one means Samsung who enjoys 90% will lose.
That's why Samsung from now itself tries to rescue itself....
One more thing, Samsung will not drop WINDOWS MOBILE. Because the future is Windows..... They are not fool to lose the revenue....
yall think sammy is just gonna get up one day and say we gonna stop making android phone... silly ppl.... what they gonna do is have exclusive features on tizen while they still keep up with the competition on android.... so they will be making phones for 2 os and 3 is windows is counted.... but on tizen am expecting to see everything they cant do on android with a 60fps or even 120fps of smoothness throughout the whole phone... prolly not this year or next year but in years to come...
Toms_Jones, 15 Aug 2013How about option that Samsung makes both, Tizen AND Android? Why is it that it has be just one?Samsung already use more than 1 OS, although they dont release much any more they do have Windows phones (or did if they stopped making them).
When Tizen comes out they will either go to 3 OS or drop Windows

gaboi, 15 Aug 2013this is interesting... it's going to be either the end of SAMSUNG or the end of ANDROID.. will... moreEven if Tizen phones come out, those will be lower and mid-range phones. Samsung will never leave android for a new os.
ralkap, 15 Aug 2013Why there has to be an end for somebody? Can't they just co exist?Samsung is the main seller of android phones, so basically what the other poster meant was that if Tizen takes off and Samsung move away from android then android will possibly go down unless everyone stays with android but with another manufacturer. The other side is that Tizen fails and samsung along with it if it cant compete with iOS and Android.

tizen=android copy, 15 Aug 2013samsung is nothing without Android.tizen will be an incomplete copy of android,that's what eve... moreYou should wait a little bit more. Intel and Samsung are huge companies you know, so wait a little bit more.
samsung is nothing without Android.tizen will be an incomplete copy of android,that's what every one knows.but tizen is no match for android.it's already dead.
Instead of wasting time on tizen and touchwiz
Ip 57 or 58
Better build quality and materials
Let android work on the os
gaboi, 15 Aug 2013this is interesting... it's going to be either the end of SAMSUNG or the end of ANDROID.. will... moreNah. Unless it irons out the wrinkles android has aaaaand Samsung releases source for tizen phones. If not, then Samsung still keeps on trucking like it has and slowly bleeding away.
