I reckon it being Google is a better way to grow the company seeing many people know that Google = YouTube and Google search which we can all agree that nearly every single person on earth uses. And one more thing.

Google should start marketing their effin products! Just like apples marketing strategies. Anybody else agree?

Users don't give a damn if it is android/qnx/tizen/firefox os or whatever. As long as it looks the same and feels the same. Which what touchwiz is for.

So I guess el goog will need to do something if it is already not too late. Sadly the motorola is not the solution.
The first Samsung Tizen phone will be launched in or around juli, scource http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13970_7...news&tag=title.

Apple tries to market their product without attaching the word "Apple". They make their brands as recognizable as possible. Most importantly, their products has a name that somehow defines the functionality, while still trademarkable: iPhone, iPad, iPod, iTunes, iWork, MacBook, iMac, iCloud. Nobody says "the Apple MacBook".

The ordinary people knows Apple only as a logo etched on the back of their phones.

Meanwhile, without the 'Google' brand, their product name would just sound random: Earth, Reader, Maps, Talk, Voice, Plus, Translate, Glass, Drive, Latitude, etc. Only Chrome, YouTube, Gmail, and Android that don't need 'Google' in front of their name. The Nexus is not (yet) strong enough to stand on its own.

Such a sad statement.. Because it's so very true.. I brought my Nexus 10 with me to a get together the other week and the first question I was asked was "Is that a galaxy?"... As I grinded the enamel off my teeth I kindly replied to "No" and didn't bother taking the conversation beyond that for my own sanity.

Ask for Google "killing" Android.. Back when the HTC Dream was all the rage it was known as the "Google Phone".. To me Google branding themselves over their products is par the for course. It's all I've ever known.. Gizmodo is king of fluff pieces and rely on them for tech news as much as I rely on TMZ for entertainment news. Gawker Media at its finest.

Most people do know what android is (there's usually some reference to it on the box of the phone anyway)
