Samsung TIZEN phones reportedly moved to 2013, focus is on Android and Windows Phone 8
Samsung promised some devices with its newfangled TIZEN mobile OS, developed in collaboration with Intel, to be coming this year. These plans have allegedly been scratched, and Tizen's commercial introduction moved to next year, due to the complete resource focus Samsung will now have to pay to its huge Android lineup, and the upcoming Windows Phone 8 handsets in the pipeline.

Handsets with bada OS are also not in the cards for this year, as bada might be ditched altogether or merged with the Tizen project. Last year at IFA there were some bada phones announced, but this year the situation is different.

Samsung is reportedly planning some heavy Android announcements for the holiday season, as well as trying to reclaim more Windows Phone space. Developers that signed up for the Tizen prototype of Samsung are probably not happy campers now.
