Samsung has this week made the app store for its Tizen platform available in most places around the world. Tizen is Samsung's homegrown operating system. At the moment the lone Tizen-based smartphone, the Z1, can only be purchased in India and Bangladesh. Samsung's decision to expand the Tizen app store to other countries could signal an intent to push the phone to new markets. A lack of apps forced Samsung to delay the launch of the Tizen smartphone by more than a year. Initially expected to reach Japan in late 2013, the phone didn't reach consumers in India until early 2015. Samsung has not said if or when it might expand the availability of the Z1 or other Tizen handsets, but the app store is now accessible from nearly every country.
