webOS not coming to Samsung hardware, says Samsung CEO

SamsungGalaxySII Hey, HP! Get ready for another kick in the stomach. You're already down on the ground, so companies like Samsung don't even have to try very hard to get you good. Speaking of Samsung, CEO Choi Gee Sung has just announced that his company won't be using webOS at all, on any of its devices, ever. 

Choi reasons out his choice because:

“It’s not right that acquiring an operating system is becoming a fashion.”

So, while Samsung wants to release as many devices as it can at every conference, it seems that it'll only allow a few operating systems to be on top of them. Android and Windows Phone seem to be the norm in the US, but if Samsung's decision not to become a partner for another operating system, we may see Bada hit stateside sometime soon.
