Ubuntu Carrier Advisory Group, the Tizen Association is designed to allow outside companies to help shape the development and commercialization of the platform, but it doesn't necessarily mean that the partner companies are committed to building for the platform. However, it will still mean quite a bit to the development process to have more backers.Just like the
The Tizen Association was first announced at Samsung's developer conference last month, and today it has announced support from 36 new companies including game makers like KONAMI, YoYo Games, and Goo Technologies; mobile carriers like NTT DoCoMo; hardware companies like Panasonic and Sharp; and, software giants like eBay, McAfee, TrendMicro, and TuneIn Radio.
The first major Tizen device is planned for release in early 2014.

Did you ask Google to make android? Did You ask Apple to make iOS? XD Nothing will happen if everyone will complain abt this.. Well just have to wait for its success or failure.

Actually yes. People asked for iOS since they wanted a WinMo alternative since WinMo lacked in a lot of areas which is why it was never widely adopted on a massive scale, thus iOS was born. People asked for Android since iOS was a closed off product. People wanted more freedom, hardware options, less expensive hardware etc. Thus Android was born. Next

Wow, Tizen coming out in full force. Won't really be looking much at it though, not the most impressed by Intel and Samsung's software...both are great hardware companies nevertheless.

That's the problem with this whole situation. They didn't make Tizen because they all of a sudden had inspiration for something great that people wanted. They made it to somehow make a third entrant in a market ruled mainly by 2 (WP is kind of coming up but for now its BB/Symbian of last year levels). Also, the fact that two hardware specialists are making software (like you said), that they have showed no aptitude for, is not comforting either.It will likely fail and pretty hard at that.

well, at least samsung makes sixty percent of eighty percent of all the smartphones used in the world. (i'm not a math person, is that like...roughly fifty percent? i think? don't quote me). that is actually a pretty massive following of people who are possibly having pleasant experiences with their devices and now have some sort of familiarity and perhaps loyalty to the samsung brand. plus if they can take all the s branded features over to tizen, it probably will not feel like that enormous of a change for average users, at least until they go to the app store. the difference with nokia and blackberry is that their user base was already in a free fall before they introduced bbos10 and windows phone. samsung would be releasing their new os with what might be the largest user base any smartphone maker has ever had in the history of mobile devices.

Intel is involved as it wants a market for it's chips. Samsung is involved as it desperately needs an alternative to Android. If Xiaomi devices can sell like hot cakes (forking android with their own apps store) why can;t Samsung succeed?

Critics of tizen, answer me when samsung is the world largest manufacturer then what wrong in an effort to establish own OS? I was an andriod hater and ios lover the time andriod was launched... now it is opposite I am andriod lover and apple hater... I am in peace since I ditched my apple 4s 7 months ago...

I dont like Samunsgs politics, they make cheap products, dont care about humanity...(Nokia from other side was very cearfull about that). Now, the are No1 mobile, tablet and other consumer products maker. With TIZEN they can connect your mobile with the washing machine and refrigirator in one net...without paying any pattents to some one else... then have their own OS, their own Products... like Apple does. But apple is already to late and they are going down, they missed their chanse. Like every empire, goes up and goes down...
