Reuters reports that Samsung’s new Z1 Tizen smartphone is receiving a very tepid reception in India, due to its sub par specs and strong competition from Android.
In this week’s Google Play Weekly, we talk about Android apps on Tizen, a bunch of Google apps updates and releases, and more Android apps and games news!
As well as its new Z1 smartphone, Samsung has announced plans to use its Tizen OS to power smart appliances and TVs this year, as well as future Internet of Things devices.
After indefinitely delaying the Tizen powered Samsung Z, rumors suggest that the OS could reappear in a budget smartphone designed for emerging markets.
The Samsung Z, announced earlier this week, is Samsung’s first Tizen powered smartphone. Here’s a closer look at Samsung’s spin on the Android OS.
Tizen has a lot of benefits and cool features, so we are naturally uneasy by it. The inconvenient truth is that it probably won’t make a dent in your Android life. Tizen simply isn’t built for dominance, or really even competition, for most of us.
Tizen, the OS that Samsung is working on with Intel, is going to hit version 2.0 this year, and boy does it look pretty. Will people actually want it though?
With a few operating systems on offer for your mobile device, do you need more options to consider? Will any of the new crop be able to challenge Android?
Samsung sent a statement to Bloomberg saying they’ll release multiple “competitive” Tizen devices this year. Sadly, no further details were given.
It seems as though Samsung, one of the biggest names associated with the budding Tizen operating system, is planning to release phones with Japanese carrier DoCoMo in early 2013.
