Samsung's Tizen Phone Suffers Another Setback

Samsung this week delayed plans to launch its Tizen-based smartphone in Russia. The Samsung Z, which the company announced in June, was expected to make an appearance at a Tizen developer conference held in Moscow this week. Samsung cancelled the device's debut at the last minute, saying only "the smartphone will appear on the Russian market later, when we can offer our users a fullest portfolio of applications." The Wall Street Journal reports that developers have not created enough apps for the Tizen operating system to adequately fill the Tizen app store on the Z. Tizen is Samsung's home-grown smartphone platform based on Linux and other open standards. The company planned to launch a Tizen device in Japan early this year, but that launch, too, was cancelled at the last minute. Samsung remains committed to Tizen and to delivering the Z to the market, but it's no longer clear when that will happen. Without developer support, the Z will be unable to truly compete with established platforms such as Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.

We don't need another OS....

Unless and it's gonna be innovative or a game changer. Tizen is too much like Android.

Methinks that even "with" developer support, the Z will be truly unable to compete with established platforms such as Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.
