That and actually Tizen (formerly known as MeeGo) enjoys a slightly better dev enthusiasm than Bada. Above all Samsung MUST strive to keep it as totally open as possible.
This is a good hedge plan against its WP7 and Android initiatives.

If actual models are upgradable to this Tizen+Bada could be a hit( and ofcourse with an refined interface not as an TouchWizz still uglier brother)

Oh to answer your question, yes, Tizen will be outsourced to other Manufacturers so you have a good shot at Sony getting their version out there. I personally am waiting for Intel's version but MWC 2012 will confirm all of this. Here's hoping for the best MWC of them all
I hope they make it available to other mobile companies so Sony can make a better looking interface :>
its time to move on i am qiutting bada may be windows phone will serve me better
Sorry today Bada phones will can't be updated to Tizen...Different hardware make it inoperative...
well, if that's the case then I have to sell my S8500... poor BADA, your life will end soon
Im not sure if this will be a good move or not, but it has the possibility to be a very good move. Theese days everything is smartphone, smartphone, smartphone... but something is needed to fill the hole left by Symbian IF Nokia desides to discontinue it.
Many people don't need a smartphone or wont pay alot of money for it.
Alot of theese end up buying low end Android phones with poor specs not really able to do all the things the flagship phones can.
sam, 15 Jan 2012super dead move! Why do phone firms keep on being stupid? Why not improve on the product with ... moreWell, Bada has hardly made a name for itself. Tizen is rising from Meego's ashes, that gives it a (small) thrust for a new beginning. Backwards compatibility is a massive plus.
It's in a way same for Symbian, with the exception that Symbian is nearly a curse word. Since Symbian's development was outsourced it has become a serious contender, but is still dragged down by it's name. Obvious attempt to shake that off, is to rename it.
Albeit, the reason for name change is different, in both cases there has happened a massive change in the OS itself.
it is pretty foolishness BADA is now growing with its own specs. sammy please dont kill bada and tizen looking very bad in nature. please dont disappoint WAVERS because that much we loves bada and waiting for bada 3 and a wave 4 this year.
aaa, 15 Jan 2012hey samsung upgrade my wave s8500 from bada 1.2 to tizen os.otherwise i wont by samsung productsyes!! of course
Relax............ samsung is just one of many OEM that will utilize Tizen in the coming months. Despite the poor design of samsung it is good to see how Tizen will be compare with Andriod, iOS and windows phone...
thats what nokia should have done - merge symbian and meego!
Does anyone know how the tizen devices will look like - will the phone have keys and will the UI look like that in the nokia n9??
why don't samsung just stick to android. bada was a joke...still is.
super dead move! Why do phone firms keep on being stupid? Why not improve on the product with same name? Only then will customers advertise you! Not just the stupid same line of thought: 'let's change name & deceive our customers', the stupid market strategy! Eg: nokia symbian belle is now nokia belle; an improper thought of deception. Be proud of it, even if it is a shit product, however, keep on working on it for improvement! Stop changing its name, unless you have sold it! Let us name!
If both are the full fledged operating systems already (atleast bada is) , not sure exactly what parts are to be merged here. As it goes for the merge thingy, Samsung certainly are confusing things up here... both for themselves and the customers !
As a professional mobile game developer, I had high hopes for the Wave 8500 (first Bada phone) but actual performance of that device was not nearly as good as it should have been!
Bada with Tizen ......Good movement Sammy
With the same platform Linux base, This collaboration will make an great alternative OS for cosumers, which now all gadget's OS has been dominated with 3 stuffs, Droid, iOS and Windows.....(Symbian and BBX :).....i don't know about their progress)
I hope Sammy not change or close the bada's name, developing apps and hardware, My opinion that bada's name has been grown and existed until now, don't close this project, remember about Sammy's target to create, developing and becoming a best integrated apps company for next 2 years.
So make a good decision Sammy;
1.will u close the bada with Tizen?
2.or keep the bada OS with many improvement things in software and hardware, which collaborated with Tizen?
I hope this collaboration will give the best gadget OS, because mixing the Bada's design and with ex: Tizen (Meego design) is very powerfull, compact and fashionable. I am really sure about this, this OS will be the 1st choice for all customers. And the name is still.....bada OS or bada-Tizen OS.
