ABI: Tizen to crack top five OS list this year
posted by Alan F. / Jun 06, 2013, 12:34 AM
65% of its installed smartphone base to be in this area. Tizen has support in Asia from mobile operators like KT, NTT DoCoMo, and SK Telekom. Individually, the new OS contenders like Tizen, Firefox and Ubuntu might not generate strong numbers in 2013 alone. But together, ABI sees 135 million smartphones shipped with these new operating systems installed, over the next five years.
We've shown you pictures of the Samsung Redwood, which is a high-end model that could be the first Samsung phone to be powered by Tizen. Some believe that Samsung wants to exclusively build Tizen powered phones in the future and drop Android. The OEM's success with its Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines was said to be giving the Korean manufacturer the confidence to focus on Tizen flavored models. But some of that speculation has cooled off in light of the recent introduction of the Nexus Edition Samsung Galaxy S4 running on stock Android.

Samsung should really not feel the need to be like Apple. Hopefully they won't think since they've sold a lot of Android phones that they should now have their own OS made exclusively for them and drop Android completely. I'm pretty sure they're not that stupid... But you never know.

Who told you that they will completely drop Android? Tizen is a good OS and there is no harm in trying this OS on couple of flagships along with Android. And Samsung is capable enough to do so.
