More support for Tizen

Written by Nick Farrell



Is an Android killer coming?

Support for the open source Linux-based operating system Tizen is growing with 36 companies including eBay, Konami, McAfee, Panasonic, and The Weather Channel signing up.

Tizen was the product of Intel and Nokia's MeeGo, and was backed by Samsung. It was suggested that Samsung was so enthusiastic because it would remove its dependence on Google’s Android. A list of partners was announced at the Tizen Developer Summit. The list includes game publishers, mobile carriers, and electronics giants.

The only device that currently ships with Tizen is the Samsung NX300 camera. No commercially available phones or tablets currently run Tizen out of the box, although many device manufacturers have announced plans to use it.
