In a recent interview with FierceWireless, Ryan Bidan, Samsung Mobile’s director of product marketing for the US, acknowledged that bringing a new software platform Stateside would be “a challenge.” In consequence, at the moment Samsung doesn’t believe that the US “is a great test market” for Tizen, and won’t release products based on it there - at least not in the near future. “We don't want to set ourselves up for failure," declared Bidan.
Instead, Tizen devices will be launched later this year in other regions around the world. Samsung may officially unveil its first commercial Tizen smartphone at MWC 2014 next month. The first country to get the handset could be Japan, as NTT Docomo (the largest local carrier) has vowed support for Tizen.
Other devices that might be released with Tizen on board include tablets, netbooks, smart TVs and in-car infotainment systems.
