@Brooks Barnard Fair enough. Android will definitely lose a lot of momentum if Samsung steps away from it. Of course, that is a really big if. For Samsung to make such a huge move, Tizen (or whatever other OS) will have to make a huge splash in the consumer market. I'm sure it's possible. I mean, look at how Android has changed the mobile landscape since its inception. At any rate, I can only see an influx of new mobile operating systems as a good thing. It gives consumers more choice and it incentivizes innovation in the existing mobile market.

I don't think Android is necessarily as dependent upon Samsung as you make it out to be. It is fair to say that Samsung manufactures the most popular consumer Android devices, no doubt. That said, I think Google has enough leverage to keep Android going through other manufacturers, even if Samsung ends up going exclusively with another OS.

@sembazurucde Why, though? Isn't "OLED display" a compound noun?

I'm sorry to be this guy, but... Is OLED being treated as an adjective here? Because if it isn't, then the comma between "flexible" and "OLED" is unnecessary. In fact, even if it is, said comma is still really not necessary. Similarly, the comma between "flexible" and "form factor" is unnecessary.

I actually just downloaded the SwitftKey one month trial, and am very impressed so far.  Having used a couple Swype style keyboards in the past (TouchPal, most recently), I am pretty excited for this.  I went to the site and signed up just now.

Maybe they'll finally put out a product worth using.  The only reason I keep it on my phone anymore is that third-party facebook apps like FriendCaster can't get all the permissions they need to display all of my friends' posts.
