“The only reason Android (and Google) have any share of the mobile game, after all, is because hardware makers like HTC and Samsung adopted Google’s software platform. And now Google is stabbing them in the back.”
“Samsung announced yesterday that it is now working with Intel on Tizen, a free, open-source, Linux-based smartphone OS.”
“We believe that the changing dynamics in the smartphone industry is forcing Samsung to develop and innovate on its own operating system named Bada,” financial analyst firm Trefis wrote on Thursday in a research note.
“Samsung is going to dump Android at the end of next year and they are going to expand their very own Linux based OS to replace it.”
