Developers I talked to said they are starting to target Samsung but watching the Google/Samsung trade offs.

Does samsung have its own app ecosystem? I thought they were mainly using android, so I guess I'm confused about how people are having to choose between google/samsung.

I heard that Samsung is developing its own smartphone platform. It will be in competition to Andriod. Though not sure whether its just a publicity gimmick or Samsung is serious. Given today's changing atmosphere, we can never be sure.

I know it is short sighted of me to say it, but it just seems like a really hard sell to get developers to jump into a flegling eco system. Samsung may be huge, but they don't have a huge app system (not compared to android/apple).  

Maybe I've just seen 10 too many horrid 3rd party interfaces for phones, but it just seems smart to jump on board with android instead. 

then again, both android and apple had to start somewhere, I guess samsung could be a major competitor before we know it.

Is is just a matter of time before Samsung is no longer an Android partner?

@Wilbur: Samsung and Intel are developing a mobile Linux called Tizen but Samsung execs never uttered the word in 90 minutes of software presentations. Conspicuous by absence!

@Caleb: Samsung saw a fork in the Android path and they took it ;-)

...but the question is whether that will be a dead end or a new highway.

The Android ecosystem is currently the main path, and diversions from the path like this either fold back into the main at some point or diverge, at which point they risk getting lost. Folding into a Linux distribution would seem to just complicate things, but it is hard to tell.

It is logical to me that Samsung is building another ecosystem. I agree with most comments here whether apps developers are willing to jump into it. To be in the safe side, will Samsung spawn an improved Android with its own API be better? Or will Samsung develop a linux based mobile OS?

On the other hands, working with Intel on Linux will likely have a tight tie to x86 architecture. What does Samsung plan to get out from the effort.

Many good API for programming hardware specific applications

Many good API for programming hardware specific applications but unfortunately still being android based API one will only be able to get benefited of it if they have Samsung hardware. But it is good that Samsung has made it publicly available.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
