Unless Google starts letting Motorola make Nexus devices, I don't know why they make different phones.

Why is Google even interested in hardware? Just stick to what you're awesome at.

It's as weird to me as Apple's insistence on pushing their mobile apps down our throats.

If Moto can get Android as smooth as Samsung, they'll ave a great phone. I've owned many Motorola phones over the years and they are tough as hell. I just don't like Motoblur.

Android is open source so Google is preparing for Samsung to pull what amazon did (as mentioned in the article). Amazon uses android for it's tablets, but has it's own app store for media. Therefore google doesn't really get any revenue from those devices. It is expected that Samsung will move in the same direction essentially cutting Google out of the loop. Google has to get in the hardware market to ensure the survival of it's own play store.

I don't think that will be a problem. I have the S4 and took a look at their app store. It is terrible. The S4 comes with both the play store and the samsung hub. Most people will go to what they know and that's the play store. Also, most developers gear toward play and the app store.
