Sprint officially joins the Tizen Association
Tizen - a new open-source mobile platform backed up by Samsung, Intel, Huawei, and a bunch of wireless carriers from around the world, now officially has the support of a major U.S. wireless carrier - Sprint. The announcement came in just now and further informs us that Fared Adib, who is vice president of product development at Sprint, is joining the Tizen board of directors. The list of carriers that have backed up Tizen so far includes NTT DOCOMO, Orange, SK telecom, Telefónica and Vodafone. 

Version 1.0 of the Tizen platform, codenamed Larkspur, was announced not long ago, and although we have yet to try it out ourselves, we know that it handles HTML5 without a hitch. Also, we have a general idea as to what some parts of its interface will look like. But when the first Tizen-powered smartphones will hit the market, or if they ever will, however, is something that is still a mystery. Oh well, at least we now have a major U.S. carrier that is interested, so we know on whose shelves we might see them landing one day.
