Samsung ditches the Tizen-powered "Z" phone, shifts Tizen strategy to low-end handsets
Shifting Tizen to low-end devices could negatively affect the development of its ecosystem, as app developers are aware that budget-minded customers tend to spend much less on applications than premium smartphone owners. Obviously, there won't be much revenue generation going on if Tizen goes down this path, but this is merely an assumption at this point.
Samsung will be holding Tizen developer events in October (Shanghai) and November (San Francisco), which means we'll hear more about the platform's state in the last quarter of 2014. Hopefully, the events won't be dedicated chiefly to smart televisions and wearable gadgets, which are the only Tizen implementations available on the market so far.
