Samsung sells a million mobile devices a day, 2 televisions every second, and an awful lot of other devices. The company sells more Android phones than any other company — but if you tuned into the Samsung Developers Conference keynote today, you wouldn’t have heard much mention of Google Android.

Instead, the company is pushing its new tools that developers can tap into for apps that use multi-window, digital pen, or motion controls, among other things, on Samsung’s phones and tablets.

The company is also playing up its Samsung Apps store and support for in-app purchases as an alternative (albeit a non-mutually exclusive one) to the Google Play Store.
