Samsung and Intel reconfirm their dedication to Tizen OS

Intel took to the airwaves to defend the Tizen mobile OS project after a blogger leaked out the whole undertaking might be in jeopardy. It refuted the claims with the following statement:

Meanwhile, Samsung also chimed in, saying that it's “actively working on Tizen eco-system together with Tizen Association members and partners,” and Intel is one of these partners, so at least two of the major players have reiterated their commitment to the alternative mobile OS project now, and we are waiting for the first handset(s) with it to hit the market.

I have never in my life seen so many OSes coming to the market. How many different ways can one log into Facebook. People buy phones for looks and how it feels to the user. In a way adding more options is just gonna make things more complex. Im tired of this me too movement as If the next OS is gonna blow.up and take over.Android is the new windows. So lets throw our suppirt at viable ssolutions instead of trying to reinvent the wheel.

It's good what you say but I not agree with you when you say Android is the new Windows. I'm waiting for Ubuntu mobile to be the new Windows as Android is conceptually slow because it is a Java VM. After Symbian (because it was very advanced when comes drivers) Ubuntu is the true viable solution to me.

I simply cannot wait to see the 1st Tizen smartphones. I hope it doesn't run with a VM like Android does.
