Samsung Says Bada-Tizen Tie-Up Still Being Weighed
Samsung has retreated from earlier statements it made regarding plans to merge its bada operating system with Intel's Tizen operating system. In a statement provided to AllThingsD, Samsung said, "Samsung and other members of Tizen Association have not made a firm decision regarding the merge of bada and Tizen. We are carefully looking at it as an option to make the platforms serve better for customers." Samsung said that it believes bada will play a role in "democratizing" smartphone platforms, and that it will continue to support open-source projects.
