We know they want to have their own app market since day one, if you look at samsung mobile beside GooglecPlay there is Samsung app market too, but i dont see they can get cut android anytime soon at least 3 to 4 more years anyway.

This look promising and great but seem to me little too late in the game. Take a look WM and RIM, they are great OS and design just too late.

Looks like there's some potential there.... but, they're gonna have to put a whole lot more effort into if they want to make it a viable competitor. Right now, the Ubunto mobile OS has more of my interest.

UI looks rather dated

It appears that this is only Samsung's backup plan OS in case something goes wrong with Android. UI is boring as hell. Especially when comparing to upcoming jolla's Sailfish or Ubuntu.

Well, that was underwhelming.. Let's see when it comes out.. But for now, after seeing this video, i am more interested in Sailfish and Ubuntu Phone.. My prediction for 2013: - android would take top spot for mobile OS - iOS would be second with WP closing in - Hopefully BB could make a comeback, but probably would be the same level as Bada - Jolla and Ubuntu would be the favorite underdogs - Tizen would follow

but.... - Ubuntu for mobile is coming early 2014, not 2013 - Android is already take top spot - Bada is discountinuing and will be replaced by Tizen, so BB wont be the same level as Bada, i am sure the percentage is higher than Bada

what i think after watched the video: - long startup - same standard UI not very good impression for me, i just hope it is far better than this after the release
