Samsung and Google to map a way forward for the future of Android

One of the horrible things about being open is that anyone can change the way something looks at any time and you can’t do a damn thing about it. Now this is the Samsung  Vs Google scenario. Take an example of new user interface that Samsung showed off at CES 2014 on their Galaxy Tab Pro series. According to  Re/Code’s Google executives were apparently so displeased with the major changes in the tablet’s Magazine UX — which has been compared to Flipboard and Windows 8 and after the talks rumor has it that Samsung may consider dumping Magazine UX entirely in future hardware.

A source told Re/Code that the Samsung–Google relationship has gone through “a huge change, a sea change in the last few weeks.” On Sunday, the two companies announced a broad patent cross-licensing deal that will see them share key intellectual property.

Samsung has released a full statement that follows below

“Samsung strives to deliver great user experiences through our mobile devices and, as such, we also offer consumers a wide selection of differentiated service and content offerings. On Samsung’s Android devices, these offerings include Google services in addition to a variety of services offered by carrier providers as well as Samsung’s own proprietary services.

To continue our momentum of delivering great user experiences and bringing greater value to people’s lives, Samsung will continue to identify and provide differentiated and innovative service and content offerings on our mobile devices.
