Move over iOS, Android and Microsoft - the Tizen is coming

move over iOS, Android & Miscrosof the Tizen is coming

All smart phone users may agree to the fact that MeeGo by Nokia was the best multi tasking operating system there was, before Nokia pulled the plug on it.    Then the users had yearned for a OS which was open sourced based on Linux.  Samsung has finally decided to launch such a phone based on Tizen a Linux based operating system .

Tizen was first heard of in late 2011, when Samsung and Intel were learnt to developing a OS based on Linux.  However the news faded from public memory due to the launches of Android Jelly Bean and iOS 6.  But Samsung, after the failure of BADA OS,  seems to have continued with the development and is said to be launching a first Tizen based phone soon with NTT Docomo. 
As per a website report of 17th May, 2012, the Linux-based OS recently hit the version 1.0 milestone and has even been paired with an official reference hardware platform. Unlike the alternative OSes that came before it, Tizen does not use the Qt application framework. Instead, Tizen apps are created using HTML5 and other web standards. It is intended to be used in smart phones, tablets, smart TVs, vehicle entertainment systems, and low-power notebooks.  However as per  CNET the Tizen phone's home screen will look somewhat like this.

The new OS will support NFC and all social networking apps as of now with further development depending on the users and publishers.  But given a chance developers are sure to jump on a open source platform and as users we will have a fourth option in mobile operating system in form of Tizen.  Meanwhile more and more manufacturers are supporting Tizen.  Read here about the Havok support for Tizen OS
