Samsung dont really have an OS team. Apple have chip designers, a compiler team, a kernel team, a lower level API team ( writing plenty of API in C, as well as Objective C), an energy management team and so on.
Samsung are throwing this stuff together. If you cant imagine Samsun writing an OS to compete with a MacBook , you cant imagine them writing one to compete with a tablet.
Its much easier (and cheaper) to build out a software team than a hardware team.
Software team only requires the staff and associated personal computers with perhaps a database server and associated software development tools.
Hardware team on the other hand require heavy infrastructure, chip design software, prototyping facilities, and multibillion fab plants.
If you were Samsung (already a hardware company with chip facilities around the world), its only a small investment to start a software team.
Samsung have even said that they will shift their priorities over to software in the coming months.
