Google And Samsung: The Honeymoon Is Over For Tech's Odd Couple
For my money the Wall Street Journal’s report today on tensions in the Google-Samsung relationship will probably rank as the high-tech news of the month – if not the year. According to reporter Amir Efrati, Google executives are becoming increasingly concerned about Samsung’s dominance in Android devices. Apparently as many as 40 percent of all gadgets running Google’s Android operating system are made by Samsung. As Efrati points out, this gives Samsung considerable leverage in talking back to Google.
