Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

How much does Samsung have to pay Google when they use android on a Samsung device?

From my basic understanding they are really pushing Tizen, fine by me I just won’t buy any Samsung products that have an OS built in. They have not sown me why their OS is superior to Android so time to move onto a new vendor. Competition is brilliant like that, great options when another company loses the plot.

Well this makes things clear that as far as Major Consumer Electronics goes, Samsung is crApple mk 2

Wonder how long it’ll be, before they start doing Tizen/TouchWiz firmware updates for the Galaxy line of smartphones, to completely remove Android from their entire consumer electronics ecosystem?

I have always thought that the reason why Touchwiz is so heavy handed, is because Samsung are looking to one day break away from Android and use Tizen or similar. Because Touchwiz is so over the top – the average consumer wouldn’t notice if it runs on Android or Tizen, and probably wouldn’t care if Tizen had Play Store compatibility.
