In what's arguably a shot across Google's (GOOG) bow, Samsung (SSNLF.PK) is partnering with Mozilla on a new browser engine called Servo. Google is the default search engine for Mozilla Firefox, but at the cost of sizable traffic acquisition payments (something unneeded for Chrome and the stock Android browser). Google is already reportedly concerned Samsung will demand higher search revenue-sharing payments for traffic coming from its Android hardware, but Samsung's dependence on Google apps and services limits its leverage for now.

    A war between Google and Samsung is inevitable. It will hurt them both and help AAPL. The industry will become more fragmented and more consumers will long for the simplicity and the interoperability of the AAPL ecosystem.

    Why AAPL and not BB or MSFT or GOOG/ASUS?

     

    Or even better we will just use html5 and the OS will become irrelevant.
