DED,   I little background that might interest people.   As people are aware Intel has been disperately trying to get into Mobile.  It turns out they are interweaved into what happened to Nokia and Samsung.   Moblin (version 1). Intel created a mobile OS called Moblin  It was effectively a copy of Nokia earlier open source effect with their Nxxx line Mobile Internet devices. Remember N800? It was effectively a stripped down UI based on GTK running on ARM.  Intel...
If Samsung tries to go their own way with a Tizen phone, they would need to decide if they want to market it as premium or low end phones or both.  If they go low end, they would be racing to the bottom and effectively competing against their own Android models.  If they go premium they are going to need to be better than both Apple and their own Android models at the user experience.  Good luck with that one.    more "its not going to be easy"
I think that is what we had before iOS and Android.   No mature Ecosystem, carrier friendly good enough.  Right?   I think it needs to be more than that if you want to get people off Android. Having Samsung abandon Android and convince people to follow them onto Tizen with "carrier friendly good enough" without the mature ecosystem in non starter for most who are already invested into Android App.   On the other hand, I am not saying many are.  Having good user experience...
Either I need to go back and reread more carefully or maybe this could have been empathized more clearly and straight forward as you stated here. I honestly did not pick up this point upon reading the article. Maybe a little bit of both?
I concur. I understood this point exactly as you summarized.  Anyone who got confused needs to go back and reread that editorial.  Google could care less about Android, as long as they have a vessel to be the man in the middle of all consumer interaction with the internet and access to all data being generated by sensors in the user's device.
if they could do it they would. This would be the "its not gonna be easy" part.  Google could care less if its this sack of poop platform or that sack of poop platform as long as its their platform that they can control and no one is able to get in their way from harvesting user information. Like Apple. They want to be the man in the middle  of all user interaction and sensors in the device.   If Apple would have allowed them that freedom in the first place there would be...
I honestly don't know. Maybe we find out soon enough using Microsoft Windows as a subject.
hold up.  They sold Bada to who?   Tizen is Bada merged with Meego which was Nokia QT merged with Moblin 2 which was OpenedHand Clutter merged with Moblin which was lite version of Gnome GTK which was based on Linux.
why would it not? There is already an ecosystem established.
If I were Apple, I'd hit them with another lawsuit early on Tizen if it looks like what is in that photo.
