15 new members join the Tizen Association
Speaking of ZTE, it is the ZTE Geek that is expected to be on display at the Tizen booth in Barcelona. The first phone to be powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 4, the Geek will be part of an app challenge that will be held at MWC.
The day before the show opens, Samsung will introduce its own Tizen powered phone at a special event, as well as take a look back at historical milestones achieved by the Tizen team. Samsung is not expected to offer the OS in the U.S. at this time, although it is an option down the road. Some believe that the Korean based manufacturer plans on using Tizen as a way to remind Google that the success of Android is largely due to Samsung and its hugely successful Galaxy S line. But both Google and Samsung recently reached an agreement on patents that both sides said "would lead to deeper collaboration on research and development of current and future projects." That certainly does not sound like two companies ready to battle against each other.

Give it a chance. You haven't even seen it work.

What one can see on youtube, Tizen UI is ugly. What can Tizen offer, what Android cannot offer? It is just a desperate try of Samsung to copy Apple's business strategy.

So your saying no one should create another platform because Android, ios etc. Are already good enough? Or you just don't like Samsung?

what Tizen may offer might turn out to be entirely different from what you have seen on Youtube buddy. Its not Sammy's effort...Intel is also on board and if Iam not mistaken they are one of the most intellectual companies on the planet.
I love android but that does not mean I am not willing to give a chance at another OS. Sure I might not buy it out of the gate but give it a year and if it can come up to 250000 apps with all popular ones on board then there's no reason not to try it.
I also think WP started weak but its perseverance has paid off and its growing quite nicely. There are TOP NOTCH developers since 2013 who are making apps exclusively for WP.
Perseverance and determination are The Ominipotent Virtues my friend!

I think that Tizen won't be as succesful as Android or iOS (or Windows Phone), but I'm VERY intrested, how is it going to be.

I am all for another Mobile OS - hopefully it will be better than Windows...

As the Tizen group states:
"Tizen allows vendors and operators the freedom and flexibility to decide what type of service is best provided to the end-users."
Given the US carrier's history, this is exactly what we don't need in the States. May it die a horrible death.

I for one want to see what Tizen has to offer(it could quickly jump to the third spot). Just to mess around with Google. I'd like to imagine Eric saying in person "Don't, I say DON'T buy the Tizen phone!"

Even better, imagine him saying that like Foghorn Leghorn.

I am also interested in Google version of trash talking their competitors. Let hear it Google!

So Sprint's interested in Tizen, but not in Windows Phone?

Good Luck, tizen.. I will only buy Tizen phone from Nokia or Sony...

I would buy tizen if it had tegra 4 or k1 in it
