Re: Samsung and software
@Thomas... I am not as skeptical but clearly see the challenges that Samsung will run into. I do think they are thinking correctly though. The software is what they need to get into. If it's done right and works for them it could the rewards look pretty good.

Samsung and software
It's hard not to be skeptical of a Samsung software push. What developer wants to create Tizen apps when Android, iOS and Windows Phone present better alternatives? And a UI layer like Touch Wiz isn't exactly all that compelling. Samsung would be better off just buying a few popular apps as Facebook has done.
