Kang Tae-jin, Samsung‘s senior vice president for planning the content, revealed that the proprietary operating system Bada will merge with the new OS Tizen, Intel-based, we had a taste in recent days. Applications developed to run on Tizen Bada, which will be backward compatible with applications already published in the past. The two operating systems, in fact, have interfaces developed by the same people and share the same roots development.
In fact, sharing the same SDK and APIs, the idea is that if a developer can write for Mind, will be able to write for Tizen. The leader Samsung has not revealed when the combination of the two OS will be completed, but noted that one or two phones that use the platform will be available this year, not excluding the possibility of a tablet with the new OS.
Intel seems to have the best in the business, if we consider that Bada has gained a small following consisting from 2% of the global market, overcoming momentarily phones with Windows Phone, despite the promotion of Microsoft. The Samsung is hoping to give birth to a combination of Bada Tizen and the second most popular open source operating system on the market, after Android. And in some ways, the combined platform would be more open: Google often holds the source code and does not allow third-party work on the core of Android.
Intel was jilted after that Nokia has decided to abandon the development of MeeGo to jump on the train of Windows Phone, despite the positive reviews of the Nokia N9 with MeeGo and hope that your system is adequately developed. Tizen was originally intended to replace Meego and uses a selected amount of technology belonging to its predecessor.
Samsung has revealed it is likely to use even for Bada smartphone models that use a low-end single-core processor, while Tizen will be used on higher-end devices that are not based on Windows Phone or Android. The Korean giant says there is no Tizen expected to become the primary operating system in the short term, but will be a long job.
Will he make it to conquer the market?
