Google’s Penetration of Android

Benedict Evans:

It was interesting, though not terribly surprising, ​that Samsung found room in its announcement of the Galaxy S4 for a tap-dancing child and a live orchestra but not Google, and mentioned Android only once, in passing. It has been clear for a while that Samsung wants the Galaxy brand to replace the Android brand.

And Apple’s recent push — the Schiller interviews, this new “There’s iPhone. And then there’s everything else.” campaign — is about pushing the opposite notion, that a Samsung phone is just another Android phone.
