Abandoning Android is a Bad Idea

A CNET article is suggesting that Samsung might focus its efforts on a proprietary operating system to move away from Android — a bad idea on Samsung’s part. Samsung phones make up perhaps 50% of Android phone sales, and splitting this would probably not mean more money for Samsung. What makes Samsung’s smartphones successful, at least in part, is that they leveraged the Android platform that has popularity with users and developers alike. Motorola Mobility is a competitor to Samsung, but at the same time, Samsung and Google have a great deal of symbioses in the same manner of Samsung and Apple. Pulling out of the Android market would kill this symbioses and most likely take down Samsung mobile devices and all Android devices alike.
