Following the news the NTT DoCoMo were not confident about releasing a Tizen Smartphone in the current climate in Japan, Samsung has made its position clear with Tizen, and yes, Tizen is going to be delayed. We have had several delays to Tizen and the latest one delays it further into 2014.
“It is true that the release has been delayed,” said one official at Samsung Electronics’ Media Solution Center (MSC) today in Korea. “Previously we did had planned to release in the first half of this year in several countries, including Korea and Russia.”
With these delays and fluctuating markets the Tizen Association members need to plan carefully what their next steps are going to be with bringing Tizen to market. Going forward we have Tizen 3.0, 64-Bit processors and LTE-A that can combine successfully for a Linux Based OS to be able to compete with today’s Smartphone OS’s.
Hopefully more will become clear soon or at Mobile World Congress 2014 …
