Tizen is a mobile operating system project very interesting because it keeps alive the spirit of MeeGo and has the support of several multinational corporations. The platform is still green but has the potential to earn a spot in a crowded market of software and gadgets.
Samsung is a company that has put more emphasis on the initiative. This summer he joined the Linux Foundation as a Platinum member and considered the possibility of merging Tizen with Bada. The Korean would be the first to launch a smartphone operating system Open Source in 2013.
information would have been released by representatives of DoCoMo, Japanese phone operator also part Tizen project. Anyway the details remain scarce and only speculate to see a prototype at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
on dates and availability territories there is no news. Sources say the original report that the new phone will be sold “in Japan and other countries” about the same time. Must see what relevance gives Samsung the device , especially since before midyear may present the successor of Galaxy S3.
The arrival of a new open-source operating system could be important for the mobile market, especially considering the popularity gained by Android globally.
