I have a question guys, as Android it's open source wouldn't you be able to use the new specs as eye-scrolling software on the android platform? i mean they are helping developing that too and would be nice to see it on the ecosystem.

Now that Apple is already toast, fuck Google.

Here's to Samsung making its own one of these trivial interchangable OSes that are all based on previously created technology that Steve Jobs stole and then patented to steal money from iSheep.

[citation][nom]gm0n3y[/nom]Why would there be a rift between them? They are both profiting greatly from the success of each other.[/citation]
Because now that Google has its own hardware division when they bought the Motorola mobile name, Samsung can be viewed as not just a partner any longer, but as competition as well. The market-share is so dominated by both Apple and especially Samsung that to break in to it and be a notable force with the Motorola name again, it would take a lot of money and effort should Google look to move past just having a patent portfolio. Likewise, since Samsung has and continues to profit from running Android, it is looking to see what Google decides to do with their newly acquired hardware capability. It's a catch 22 and a conflict of interest in a way that Google created here.

Because Samsung is #1 with taking ideas and benefiting from them. Its Samsung innovation at its finest. Oh, lets not forget that iPhone 5 is 3 times more reliable than S3. The rest of your post is funny.

Google never wanted Motorola so that they would be tied down making hardware. It's clear they were after their patents as leverage in protecting Android partners. I am sure those patents brought Apple to the negotiating table, and some sort of agreement was made to co-share them in exchange for not going all out attack on Android manufacturers.
If Google wanted to make hardware too, trust me you would get a killer Nexus machine, but where would the benefit be in that when all the other manufacturers throw in the towel and go back to trying to make their own OS.
As for Samsung specifically, why wouldn't Google be pleased for their success? Firstly we have a company that shows that if you couple good design with marketing, you can achieve enormous success with Android. On the other front we finally have an Android manufacturer that has the ability to compete with Apple, putting out phones that are not only every bit the equal of iPhones, but in my own personal view - better.

Google should seriously consider selling Motorola Mobility. They mainly acquired them for their extensive amount of patents anyway. Now that they have them to defend Android manufacturers from Apple, being a direct competitor will only harm the Android ecosystem.

Reminds me of when 3DFX tried their hand at manufacturing, only to scare away all of their distributors to ATI and Nvidia. While Google is obviously far better off than 3DFX ever was, it's still a bad idea.

No.. I believe they should set a benchmark with Motorola. Samsung makes wonderful phones, but I hope that Google intends to show the world how it is done. As long as they don't lock every little design element in patents against other android smartphone manufacturers then the "ecosystem" as they called it will flourish. But Google is not stupid. I believe they will promote their software above the hardware.
