Sole reason means that Samsung had everything to do with it. Yes they definitely pushed it but no they aren't the only reason android has become so successful. There is HTC, LG, Motorola, and more that have released great android phones which have been successful.

You can't honestly be that naive. Yes, Samsung is big right now, but there are way too many players to give all credit to just them alone. You could actually make the argument that Motorola/Verizon with their Droid campaign is responsible for getting Android into more people's hands. The G1 being exclusive to T-Mobile wasn't penetrating the market the way Android is now, and everything opened up once the original Droid dropped.

I'd have to say that I mostly agree with this assessment. Sammy actually delivered great phones using the Android system providing people with an amazing alternative to the Apple offerings.

Now are they THE SOLE REASON? Probably not but they showed everyone that the Android platform was a very good one thus driving better phones from the other companies like Motorolla and HTC.

Sorry but DROID is the sole reason for android's success. Most people I know call android phones, droids.
