Can Samsung search be far behind?

Samsung sold more smartphones than anyone and developers know that current Samsung users will likely buy another Samsung phone in 2 or 3 years. So they have an advantage over most. Could HTC do this? Absolutely not and the list could be everyone else other than Samsung. And with Intel behind them, it's likely to work. I may not like Samsung, but their odds look good to me.

Thanks for your comment Don.

The biggest problem for any new OS will be garnering app developer support, which will be hard considering that it will take a long time before said new OS to gather a significant customer base. It will be hard for Samsung to achieve a large number base, but it will be relatively easy for them to tick off Google and the Android platform. In other words, this is going to be a big gamble with no guarantee of success.

Worse news for Google and Android than Apple. Android without Samsung is much more vulnerable.

It is true, @Dick Applebaum. The software is based on Linux, it's open-source and it's got a developers' website ready already.

If true, an overdue but ballsy move!
