Samsung Favoring Android Over Windows Phone 7 And Bada

Samsung's Mobile Marketing head YH Lee has said that they plan on staying on board with Google and Android, over Windows Phone 7 and their own OS called Bada for the most part. This is probably a blow to Microsoft, being that Samsung has been one of their major handset partners in the past. This goes to show you, that the manufacturers want to be able to customize an already popular platform, to be relevant and at the same time differentiate themselves from the others. We would say this is for sure, that Samsung at no time, plans to stop putting their skins on top of Android.

Samsung Road SMS for Galaxy S hands-on [Video]

We've a soft spot for augmented reality (AR) apps and a dislike of walking into lampposts, so Samsung's new Road SMS app for the Galaxy S satisfies both our hunger for gimmicks and personal safety.  Available exclusively through the Samsung Apps download store on the Galaxy S - and, we're guessing, on the Vibrant, Captivate and any other Galaxy S variant the company pushes out - the Road SMS app basically overlays a QWERTY keyboard on top of a live view from the phone's camera. That means you can strut along the street, texting away to your hearts content, while simultaneously keeping an eye out for open manhole covers, angry dogs or stray celebrities.  Unfortunately the app itself is pretty basic: all you have is a keyboard, a shortcut to choose the message recipient and a character counter (which seems to want to limit messages to 80 rather than the more usual 160 characters); there's no way to browse incoming messages or indeed take a photo for an MMS. Still, as a free gimmick it's pretty neat, and we imagine someone will soon rip it from the Samsung ROM and offer it on other custom installs for rival handsets.  Full demo in the video below.
