Samsung CEO debunks the webOS rumor, says it's working on software "harder than people on the outside think"
Well, the rumor that Samsung is looking to buy anything from HP just got shot down by none other but Samsung Electronics CEO Choi Sung, who denied any interest in acquiring webOS from the computer giant. “It’s not right that acquiring an operating system is becoming a fashion", he said.

So much for anything else on Samsung's tablets but Android and Windows. The more interesting for us part, though, was the statement that, on the software side of things, Samsung is working "harder than people on the outside think".

We outsiders are not thinking anything actually, besides the fact that the Koreans are evidently stepping it up on that front. Samsung hired Cyanogen, expressed interest in the guys behind the MIUI custom ROMs, and launched its own platform-agnostic messaging service ChatON.

Thus, we will wait the next generation of its Android handsets and tablets with Ice Cream Sandwich, curious how Samsung is planning to overhaul the TouchWiz UI, which, albeit functional, for now is its only Achilles heel.
