Why in the world would Samsung want to put themselves at the mercy of Google by going with Android? It's not like Samsung lacks resources or a camera OS is that complex compared to that of a smartphone. Android is becoming too fragmented and Samsung will have to wait for Google or at the very least get permission from Google in order to do updates.

Not according to this:

Makes your statements invalid.

Really? IMO, it's wise for Samsung not to get to entangled and dependent on any one manufacturer. Cross licensing of hardware patent is common, necessary and is different than software control. Also an except from the article you linked to.

"The move suggests that Samsung isn't keen on burning any bridges -- even if it starts drifting away from Android, it should remain in Google's good books."
