Samsung has issued a press statement that it will be releasing several devices running the Tizen mobile OS this year. Unfortunately, there are no specifics as to hardware specifications, when they will be heading to market, or at what price.
The Tizen foundation, which was formed by Samsung and Intel, among others, to support the open-source alternative to Android, is a type of backup plan for Samsung, should Android's dominance of the mobile market begin to wane in the following years. Tizen is also a way for Samsung to reduce its reliance on Google, especially in light of the web giant's buyout of Motorola Mobility.
Reports that Japanese wireless carrier NTT Docomo, another Tizen Foundation partner, will be releasing a Tizen-powered device in Japan have also surfaced, which bodes well for European markets, as British carrier Vodafone is also part of the Tizen group.
I have an image of TIZEN downloaded in one of my USB's dongle. I don't remember if I signed that I will not "compile" it for any of my devices. Further more why they don't sales me JUST THE DEVICE (the phone) & choose my self witch OS I...
If the new device(s) employed by exynos_5 WELL DONE. BUT not a repetition of the "wave 3 -S8600" story. And all these of course IF TIZEN REMAINS OPEN SOURCE O.S.
I'd like to see it open source but it's closed. De Icaza: ttps://twitter.com/migueldeicaza/status/304690722156716034
