I would say Samsung proprietary Services coming soon (as he acknowledges it's Apple's ecosystem the differentiator and services like iCloud).... Then, they can offer services on any Samsung-only products regardless of OS (Bada, Tizen, Android) or possibly even TV's and laptops. This will make Samsung products harder to copy/clone/commoditize by the Chinese.

I've been reading comments on this site for quite some time and I would have to say that many commenters here don't know what trolling means then. I have been asked to "leave this site" by users many times because I corrected them on some ridiculous claim they made regarding Android.

There are Android trolls here but very few. Many iOS users are just intolerant towards Android users. You can see this in any Google or Samsung thread here.

Yep, you know it's coming. Google has created a monster in Samsung and that monster will eventually eat its creator.

I mean if the guy is using Apple software, likes how it works, wants an ecosystem... The article really sounds like the beginnings of more "copying."

Joking aside, It'd be quite dumb for any company to fire senior executives for speaking truth like he does.

It's not as if he were lashing out verbally against his own company: his view of Samsung is quite balanced and sensible: They have one of the (potentially, at least) broadest consumer hardware platforms in the industry (from TVs to tablets to phones to fridges), yet their approach to user experience has been more device-centric than platform-centric.

Seems much more thoughtful and smarter than, take for example, Ballmer is at times (judging from public appearances/statements).

There are only two things I need now.

1.) For Samsung/Google to complete their already dominating ecosystem with more mobile apps that are as solid as the ones that exclusive to iOS.

and

2.) For Apple to get some Samsung and Microsoft employees to help them get a clue when it comes to the cloud and cross platforms.

Hes right that Samsungs most profitable option is to copy Apple.

Not so sure that iCloud is why we love our Macs and iPads Its a nice thing, but Id instead say I like the software AND hardware. Services? Yes, but honestly, if Apples stores and iCloud were poor, but the app selection were still as good, I wouldnt quite jump ship. Id grumble incessantly, but mostly Im USING apps and media, not buying them. And Id hate to go back to the pre-wireless-synch (iCloud) days, but I still liked my devices back then!

So what I like:
1. OS and apps
2. hardware and services (important but second place)

Yeah, they wanted to buy SONY TV but they get screwed because the design of Samsung was so close to the SONY's one

Actually, I think he's signalling to potential partners that Samsung wants to work with them and that they see their opportunities there.

I know some people here are excited by the fact that he said Apple has a better ecosystem, but he's also clearly saying that in his view Samsung has better devices.

Edit: Found it:

Look at your phone [pointing to my Samsung Galaxy Nexus]. It’s a better phone, in my view. It’s a better display. It’s faster. But eventually the connected ecosystem is really critical.

I use Mac Journal for iPad works wonders for jotting down notes in my seminars and lectures. Then it all syncs to my iMac & MacBook Pro when I get home so I have several constant backups of two years worth of work.

I spent about 10 min with an SIII the day after its launch and went "god I don't like this one bit"

Personally I'm not a fan and don't really care what anyone else uses, but Android is not for me. It might suite others fine, but nah.

Bad idea. Samsung could turn around and print Apple SVP of Internet Experience Eddy Cue's internal letter that started them on the road to make the iPad Mini... after he used a Samsung Galaxy 7" tablet:

Since then, Cue's star has risen and Minis are selling like hotcakes... possibly even better than its bigger brother.

Smart management looks at what attracts buyers to their competition.

Unlikely. If you read the actual article Samsung are wanting to move from copying to innovating. This guy is the right person to do that. Setting up in Silicon Valley is a brilliant move.

Samsung will have it's chequebook out and they'll pick up people.

Interesting times.

Seems they're just doing what the Japanese and Taiwanese have done, copy, grow then lead.

This is sheer brilliance for a strategic move.

This actually isn't as uncommon as some people might think. I work at a major CE company and we're an Android and Windows OEM but a lot of employees here use Apple gear (mostly for personal use), including some execs.

In fact, I know lots of Apple fans at Google and Microsoft as well. What's unusual is that this exec went on record with this information.

Also what America did to Europe, though more than a century ago.

I also wouldn't be surprised at all if many of the actors in the samsung commercials as well as the production company and crew, use iphones and macbooks. most do in the commercial/film industry
