Phones powered by Tizen heading to India and Russia

The date of the event will supposedly coincide with a Tizen developers conference meeting in San Francisco that will be held in early June. In addition to a Russian launch, the Samsung Tizen phone is also expected to be unveiled in India. And there is also speculation that a Tizen driven television will also be made available in the region.
When Tizen was first announced, many felt that Samsung was trying to reduce its reliance on Google's Android OS. Samsung is said to feel strongly that it is the major reason for the success of Android, with models like the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy S4 and the just released Samsung Galaxy S5. But now, it appears that Samsung will confine Tizen flavored smartphones to emerging markets.

The Samsung Tizen handset will sell very well in India as Samsung has a humongous brand recognition and value here and people will buy it regardless of it running Android or not.

i don't think so that Indian buyers will grab what ever is thrown at them , before this they have rejected Bada OS from Samsung. Only if the OS has usablity like Android then it can excel in India or rest of the World

Now when they put TouchWiz on Tizen , ppl will not even see the difference. Right? And you can see , why Samsung was duplicating many apps, like S-Voice, S-Calendar......in TouchWiz. Of course Samsung DO NOT plan to leave Android, as the apple propaganda try to make intrigues.

Better to buy the Nokia X rather than buy Tizen. Samsung == cheap hardware + buggy software + ton of bloatware + pay $$$ for gimmicks. Galaxy S3 (international version) was my last phone from Samsung. Sold it after using for 6 months due to dropped calls, battery drains etc...
