If eventually Samsung abandons Android OS what scenario would that create to smartphone market?

@Wale Bakare, that would create  lot of confusion to the end users because they will have multiple OS to choose from. Android will slowly loose its market share just like the symbian lost its market.

Even Siri says Nokia Lumia 900 is best smartphone ever.

I believe, the tiny number of professionals know inside and out of smartphone components. What about the substantial number of consumers ? Whom i think lager percentage of them like to jump in the bandwagon. Why not be on the market watchout for at least Q3/Q4 of 2012 to decide if best fits Nokia.

Samsung OS?

Its market growth is playing major impact to Samsung success. And it feels creating own software application that would enable its products run on would not cause any harm. If eventually Samsung abandons Android OS what scenario would that create to smartphone market?

Google's Android came from nowhere to become the leading smartphone operating system.

@Bolaji, one of the things that might be worrying Google is the announcement by Samsung that the "company is working on merging its Bada mobile operating system with the open-source Tizen operating system". This clearly shows that Samsung is not comfortable using Android and in the long run they would want to develop their own OS. Nokia wont face this problem because Microsoft doesn't own its own mobile business.

Suddenly, I am beginning to think the future for Nokia may not be that gloomy after all.

@Bolaji, I totally agree with you. I feel Nokia provides some of the best hardware features on its phone. Even Siri says Nokia Lumia 900 is best smartphone ever.

Apps are critical. However other than some preinstalled apps in the phone, i think people would not mind paying a few dollars for really quality apps if there are.

It is surprising that MS is not marketing Windows OS but I am sure it doesn't mean they don't trust their product. Probably they are waiting for the right time and with linkages with hardware manufacturers they will soon come out with a bang. Atleast, I hope so.

It is quite surprising that Microsoft is not marketing the Windows OS the way it should. This may be signs that even the company doesn't trust the product that much as a game changer.

@JADEN:

"It is the carriers that make Apple what it is today."

That is true, But still the quality of Apple's products made it easy for carriers to sell them. If Nokia Windows phones are good, carriers will certainly back them up.

It is the carriers that make Apple what it is today.  As Verizon is cheering Nokia Windows phones, this is an opportunity for Nokia to succeed.
