ALTER, 25 Feb 2013likewise they will dump tizen in a couple of yearsLike how Nokia will eventually ditch windows?
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.
"differentiate the manufacturer from the rest of the Android"--perfect summary of news.
tizen... some people are waiting for an OS full of 1.0 bugs that will be useful in around 4 years from now, just to tell others that they switched to tizen because android 4.1 is laggy and buggy... mehhhhhhhhh
tizen = bada because samsung = samsung
i don't hate myself enough to believe in everything marketing wants me to believe in. specialy when it comes from samsung.
Kreaninw D Unlimited, 25 Feb 2013Everyone have to avoid all the new OSes and make Android and iOS(if you want competition) bett... moreIf it was after me I'd had Android and iOS fighting in front and second WP8 and BB OS. Nothing more.
I request people not to get this tizen device.samsung made bada users suffer in every possible.i had wave 2 and i suffered like hell...totally not buying any more samsung ever...sony is the best...they do what they are good at and dont keep putting their nose everywhere...samsung is ruthless...shame on you samsung,you are the worst phone manufacturer...
Everyone have to avoid all the new OSes and make Android and iOS(if you want competition) better by using it. As we're using it, it means devs will bring all games and apps to your platform of choice.
Now with iOS and Android and may be Windows Phones, we already have a reasonable competitors here. Adding more to it and it'll become fragmentation.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2013Mean no more update & support for present Bada user, pity those who bought Bada phone earl... moreAnd trolls what have to swallow? Samsung(a company wich I don't quite like) is retiring Bada because now is focusing on Tizen(with Intel that Nokia kicked off and abandoned Meego) and BADA apps will be compatible on Tizen. Nokia retired Symbian and Symbian Apps(pressuming they are any quality ones over there) are backward compatible with nothing because Nokia is not working on anything instead because they have all the eggs in one WP basket. :)
Jay Bee, 25 Feb 2013Any guesses what the S iv will be running?Certainly not Tizen. They'll kill themselves if they do.
I am very surr most of the BADA phone users have flashed their devices to Android OS...courtesy Wave Droid Project...
AntiComplainer, 25 Feb 2013Crapsung failed again.At least they didn't fall flat on their face. Apple did and Nokia did and both needed Microsoft help.
I hope Tizen adopt something like the two step verification system which will be on most websites in the future.
