Sprint Adds Weight to Tizen Association
Sprint today announced that it has joined the Tizen Association. Tizen is the standards-based open source mobile platform project backed by Samsung and Intel. It recently moved out of beta and reached 1.0 status. Sprint is joining the Tizen board of directors and is the first North American carrier to be a part of the Tizen Association. Other board members include NTT DOCOMO, Orange, SK telecom, Telefónica, Vodafone, and Huawei. Sprint said it "support[s] an open mobile ecosystem that enables choice for Sprint customers," but it stopped short of saying that it would eventually offer Tizen-based handsets.
