Samsung postpones launch of first Tizen smartphone?
While the first Tizen OS smartphone by Samsung were expected to launch in August or September of 2013, it seems like that is not going to happen as planned. According to reports by Korean media, the tech giant is postponing the launch of this device (or devices) by a couple of months. In other words, Tizen powered handsets likely won't be on the market earlier than October or November, 2013.

The reason behind the delay is said to be related to the software ecosystem, which Samsung wants to build prior to releasing its first Tizen smartphone. Simply put, the company prefers to build a solid catalog of apps and then make the smartphone official, not the other way around. 

The very first Samsung Tizen OS smartphone, bearing a model name GT-I8800, is expected to be a high-end device, although exact hardware specifications have yet to be revealed. We also believe that the Tizen smartphones after it might be of the mid-range tier, powered by last year's Exynos 4412 SoC, also found inside the Samsung Galaxy S III

I hope Samsung build a great platform to compete with android. Competition drive innovation there no way around that.

YES!! I'm excited to see what Samsung has came up with. Even though I'm royal to Android, doesn't mean I don't want to see a good competitor to arise to force Android to get even better.

Can't wait to see the final device :)
Great way to enter with a ready app catalogue, they've learnt their lesson from Bada, and also from W and BB's BB10.

Well the big problem that I see, is like with any new platform, what about the apps?

Only waiting for Jolla and what they can come up with. If the OS manages to handle android apps as good as android itself. I'm SOLD.

Well bada is flop, so as this, even the firefox thing OS. If they really want to top in OS, they need to change the whole interface

Quality is better than quantity. If it is necessary to strengthen the application catalog then do so, it must be remembered for when it's released Tizen will be at war several good quality operating systems like OS and expected Sailfish and Android 5, IOS 7. This is very interesting.

some problems apparently occured...as always with samsung and their "newest, greatest"
In time, tizen will share the same fate as bada.

i think you should wait and see..otherwise later after Tizen's succes, you'll be so butt hurt that you start to get mad at Samsung and bash them like crazy..This will make you feel tensed

If they would not provide proper support for Tizen then it'll also fail like Bada.
