When I first heard about Samsung creating their own OS for mobile phones I was shaking my head…. And I’m still SMH. What is the point in creating an OS? In my opinion it should be because you have something that is more advanced then what’s currently out. Apple changed the name of the game with iOS. Android made the go open and customizable for each user. Even Ubuntu is taking things to the next level. What is Tizen doing? It looks as bad as android Cupcake. It’s basically TouchWiz.
In order for people to use this new ecosystem, they will have to ditch Google. What is going to make people do that? Everything they have is already wrapped up in Google. Personally I think this is going to be a major failure. Unless there’s something we just haven’t seen yet. Possible, not probable. Samsung has the big bucks to throw into a project of this magnitude. So go for it.
