Not really, its intended to be the only thing that people interact with on their phone, a complete replacement. Similar to how people used to, and some still do, think that AOL is the internet.
It's an app launcher. It will even be available for other phones via the market.

Isn't Samsung working on their own OS called Tinzen that's based on Linux? isn't that why Google is a bit worried on Samsung having so much market share. I think Samsung using Android is simply buying them time until Tinzen is finished and getting a dedicated fanbase for the Galaxy S products, then dropped Android all together. Pretty clever, but we'll see how it plays out.

samsung products are really not that bad to be honest, people are buying it over all other android phone does have its own reason.
once their product is not as good as the competitor, we will switch.
we as a customer are not stupid.

fanbase is not able to get you to top with crappy product, look at the ps2 and ps3... once the change is not what buyer wanted, they will no longer be dominated..

well nokia and blackberry are a good example..

Google makes no money directly from Android. Since Tizen is going to run Android apps, and Google is still more than likely going to be involved in the ad scene on the OS, I fail to see why Google would be worried. Sure, they will have less control, but if they are still present on the platform, no issues.

The rise in Microsoft is curious. But I'm sure the buyers of that phone become pissed once they realize the apps for Windows Phone 8 don't work on Windows tablets, and vise versa.

MS's mobile strategy is thoroughly flawed.

But seriously, what was MS thinking in not having universal apps for the phone and the tablet? Not to mention the confusion on the 3 different versions of the tablet which are all incompatible with each other. Bizarre.

I think the "strife" between Google and Samsung is a bit overblown. The whole point of Android was to ensure Google wasn't barred from the mobile space by RIM/Blackberry and Windows Mobile. I find it especially unlikely as people like Samsung have no presence in the search or ad space. Android isn't about presence, it's about turning Google users into products they can sell.
