Android applications can run on Tizen devices with OpenMobile's Application Compatibility Layer (ACL)

Samsung has no software development, BADA is the perfect example of this.

If you don't agree, tell that toa Samsung, by mailing them and post the answer.

actually, if Tizen carries much of the meego qualities, its a good thing. it has a lot of potential, even back when the n9 came out, meego could run some android apps. think about the possibilities.

I don't like samsung products, but they might be onto something here if they can do this right. it'll be interesting to watch. FYI, meego was very fluid in its day...

TOO LATE!!! I waited years for something MeeGo to come out. You and other MeeGo developers took too long.

Ubuntu for Mobiles is getting my money this october.

So Samsung, Jolla, Intel, you can all rot in the phone factory now.

Tizen is horrible GUI. I still dont know why samsung which is Top1 android producer wants to change to obsolete Tizen which is same as bada os. Really samsung marketing team needs a new CEO

Exactly. What proof they have that Tizen won't meet the same destiny as Bada? No one. So do us all a favor and stick it up yours. We don't need hundred different OS-es when they sometimes can't make up their mind within different versions of the same OS.
I had Bada and it was ok. When they released v2.0 they thrashed ALL the important features from 1.0 making my Wave useless brick. So no thanks, i'll stay with Android which works great on my SGS2...

I used Bada on the wave for just over a year. During that time there was so much dissapointment with all the top apps (e.g. Google Maps, Angry Birds, Whatsapp etc) never coming out on BADA. The updates were also slow and they took forever to release them to some countries (incl mine). Because of the bad service and updates and the way Samsung screwed the Wave users I will never ever buy a Tizen phone. I now use Apple iOS and it's OK.

Samsung don't care for their costumers, they didnt even made any development on bada. Poor on updates.
