While today no one can understand Android except Samsung, is one of the strongholds of the Google app. But that Android would have been very different from what it is now if the South Korean company had made a different decision than before.
A little history. Android was introduced in 2007 and its founder is Andy Rubin. Before all that, in 2005, Google acquired Android Inc.But before all that and especially in 2004, Samsung had the opportunity to buy Android despite rejecting the idea. Why?
Samsung may have bought Android, what happened?
Before Google actually buys Android, Samsung may have. This is how one of Wired's authors, Fred Vogelstein, referred to his book Dogfight: How Apple and the Google Went to War and the Started Revolution. The story is that in 2004, the year before Google bought Android, Andy Rubin expressed the idea to a few Samsung executives at a meeting in Seoul
According to the Android Authority, Samsung did not like what Rubin showed them. The fact is that instead of dismissing the idea, the South Korean company's executives after an unpleasant silence made fun of the Android developer. As stated in the letter, one of the managers thought that Android was a joke and expressed the following: “Which army will you do? You have six people. Are you high? ”Spanish translation can be something like: You and the army will build with this? You are only six people. Are you high?
The story behind this is already known. Google entered the scene and bought Android $ 50 million. Today Android is the most widely used operating system in the world by millions of active devices, above iOS – even though the iPhone 11 is a sales leader between 2020-. Without a doubt, Google was right about this acquisition.
Apparently the South Korean company made the mistake of not getting Android at that time. It is true that Android would not be the same as it is now and may not have had the same success as it does today. It is also true that Samsung did nothing wrong and took Android as its mobile phone app. A clear example is at the top of its current range, the Galaxy S20. However, in its history you will not only lose your Android but also make fun of its creator
