iOS

This is interesting news.  It’s obvious Samsung wants to control it all, from the hardware, to the operating system.  If anyone can do it, it’s Samsung but I still think it will be tough.  I mean, we have Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8, Blackberry 10, Ubuntu Mobile, Firefox Mobile, do we need another one.  It’s pretty much Android and iOS dominating with all the others a distant 3rd.  Much of Android’s domination is because of Samsung.  I guess that’s why they think they can get people to move to these new Tizen phones eventually.  We’ll see.

I’ll believe it when I see it.  They are making office for iOS and Android but it seems like a stretch, in my opinion, that they would make a Linux version.  iOS and Android have 98% of the market share or something ridiculous like that so it makes more sense that Microsoft would want Office on that.  Putting Office on Linux seems like admitting that Windows is/going to lose significant market share to Linux, which seems highly unlikely to me (how many years now have Linux nerds been saying it’s “The Year of the Linux Desktop”?).

I certainly hope so.  I’m getting tired of some app developers still only making apps for iOS or doing it first.  Makes no sense to me.  I know the argument is that they make more money on iOS but I don’t think that’s true as much anymore.  I’ve bought several Android apps.  I will pay for a quality app.
