Samsung working on forming a partnership between Tizen and Firefox OS

0. phoneArena posted on 29 Nov 2013, 16:08

Just how badly does Samsung want to split from Android? Amid rumblings that the Korean based manufacturer feels responsible for Android's success (to be fair, Samsung does have the lead in global market share amongst smartphone manufacturers), Samsung’s Chief Secretary Wonsuk Lee said at an HTML5 conference that thecompany is working on fostering a relationship between its Tizen OS and Firefox OS...

You think i'm a kid?? hahaha...

I'm 100% that you are closed minded samsung fanboy because you always defend samsung even when you know that samsung doing something wrong.

That's the reason why i say “Any person who think samsung = Android is clueless or closed minded fanboys JUST LIKE U” :)

Let me tell something about me.
I always bash samsung and their fanboys only when samsung doing something wrong or when samsung fanboy say something stupid.
If you are “mature enough” you will never defend your beloved company like mindless armies.

Just FYI I'm also samsung and nokia loyal customer since 2009 and until this day there is only 4 devices from sony that i ever use K750i, RX100, Xperia ZR and Tablet Z.

If you can show me that sony have done some dirty moves like samsung i'll start bashing sony.

Samsung does not want to "split" with Android, in my opinion. More like they want to have an OS they can foster to not be so dependant on Android.

I can't see how leaving Android will help them at all. The two make up the most successful pairing ever. Not just in mobile..... EVER.

Well, that Reese's pairing may have an argument, but OTHER then them.......

It's amazing how idiots bring up iOS into this conversation. It's more people that create apple vs android war than the actual companies. All OS's are pretty amazing just find out which one you like.

Can someone who knows a lot about this tell me why Samsung would want to leave Android? I would not say that Samsung made ​​Android famous or vice versa .. but today Samsung and Android together are the biggest in the smartphone industry. Why risk it?

Because the burden of Android forced Samsung to pay fines to both Apple and Microsoft in Billions total and its still going on. Shame because Android is an excellent OS too bad some features are borrowed tech

Nothing from Android cost them a penny in fines. Some license fees. And every OS has borrowed tech. Every new feature in iOS 7 came from another mobile OS.

I'm pretty sure that if Android were to never have been, Samsung would not be in the position they're in now. I say Android and Samsung are responsible for each others success.

^^^^^^^^ this

I agree with many of you. Tizen will be a supplement to Android and not a replacement. I would go with Windows before Tizen.

You know anyone saying that android is slow or a resource hog is stuck in a time when this once was true. All I can say is I love my nexus 5 and I'll put it up against any iPhone or wp phone out right now. I'm sorry Samsung but you need to stop before you end up dead in the water. I'm not a fanboy I have been using android since 2009 and watched it grow. I had a little affair with wp and went back. My friend has an iPhone and I fix all of his problems. So yes I can truly say that Android you have become a very mature young adult with so much potential ahead of you.

android is still a resource hog if you look closely that android yes has been improving but the game changer is the hardware advancement in the last few years they just answered the question by giving android the resources it need !!

Don't care for Samsung myself, so this shouldn't effect my future purchases greatly,
as I'm hearing the siren call of Gomoto lately anyways.

I have a better idea:
Partner with Apple and bring iOS to your crap devices!
Apple makes 4.0 inches iPhones. Samsung makes larger 4.7,5.0 inches samPhone with iOS.
Leave Android samsung, you're only making bad advertisement for Android.
Look at how you made TouchWiz heavy,dull and full of lag. The difference is night and day when you compare with Sony and HTC and even more with CyanogenMod. And I know what I am talking as I was a fool for using your products! GTH

I think Samsung should use a different OS,

Because they don't appreciate Android anyway, please add them to the listed of user to be good companies

Another episode of 'where are they' coming up.. lol
