I think this is a super great article, I think it's super cool than you posted it.

all kidding aside, I am curious to see what the future holds for Android. Android has really become super amazing in just the last couple years. Even mid range devices now are super responsive/lag free and have super specs. lol

Samsung wants to take the Apple route. They will become less, and less dependent on Android when they release Tizen. They want to control their hardware and software. This is why the GS4 was kinda underwhelming, they're saving the best spec phone for later this year when they release Tizen. Google also will eventually push Motorola into the #1 spot for android phones. Both companies understand that they must have a backup plan. Samsung, from a software standpoint, and a Google, from a hardware standpoint.
