Samsung has confirmed, that it’s going to bring Tizen OS based devices to the market this year. First Tizen OS device rumors showed up earlier this week. Samsung also wants to reduce it’s reliance on Google Inc.’s Android operating system after the internet search company purchased handset maker Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. for $12.5 billion in May.
“We plan to release new, competitive Tizen devices within this year and will keep expanding the lineup depending on market conditions,” Suwon, South Korea-based Samsung said in an e- mailed statement today.
Samsung is going to bring first Tizen OS based smartphones to the market with NTT DoCoMo later this year.
NTT DoCoMo is partnering with Samsung to develop phones running the open-source Tizen operating system, according to report from from Japan’s Daily Yomiuri. First Tizen-based smartphone would be launched next year. According to the Yomiuri, other mobile phone carriers are also getting behind developing Tizen because they “fear” Apple’s and Google’s hegemony. Tizen operating system was first introduced back in September 2011, and came about when Nokia’s MeeGo OS was dumbed. Tizen’s main developers are Samsung and Intel, a major US semiconductor manufacturer. Also the development of apps for the new OS would be much more simpler.
