Tizen, open source operating system, could become a major success as it has backing of Intel, Samsung and Linux.
The first version of the Tizen mobile operating system has been launched by the Linux Foundation. The new open source mobile operating system has been designed to support a variety of devices such as smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, netbooks, and in-vehicle infotainment devices.
Though the first device to be launched on this OS is still not known, given that the project is moving at fast pace, it is expected that some major announcement in this regard may be announced at the Developer conference which will be held between 7th to 9th May in the USA.
The project is hosted by the Linux Foundation while its development was led by a technical steering team from Intel and Samsung. Tizen will build upon technologies developed as part of the MeeGo and LiMo (Linux Mobile) projects.
