Samsung’s success is based currently in large part on Smartphones and tablets running Android. However, despite an open program code, the operating system is under the control of Google. Currently the search engine provider with its reasonable nexus devices and the latest Motorola models such as the Moto G other manufacturers is unpopular, as also their profit margin is shrinking due to the low prices. Tizen the Korean group but is an alternative operating system available to its developing is already far advanced and which is suitable even for cameras, televisions and refrigerators. Besides the devices mainly apps are missing, but if Samsung big brings out his program, hardly a developer that comes around.
Emergence of Tizen
Intel and the Linux Foundation laid the foundations for Tizen in September 2011. The new operating system should replace the Linux version of MeeGo and unlike these be platform-independent and portable. Beginning of 2012 there were first reports that Samsung wants to integrate its operating system Bada in Tizen. In the summer of 2012, Samsung joined then officially at Intel and the Linux Foundation. On April 30, 2012, the developers released version 1.0 of Tizen OS, in September 2012 version 2.0 followed already on time to the Developer Conference in November 2013 Tizen 2.2.1 followed. For early 2014 Tizen 3.0 is already announced.

Tizen is more than Samsung
Samsung is involved in the development of Tizen while leading and the manufacturer who has already announced products with the software in the Tizen Association work with other well-known companies. These include manufacturers like LG, Fujitsu, Huawei, sharp and Panasonic Mobile communications companies such as Vodafone, Orange, NTT docomo or SK Telecom. But companies in other sectors such as McAfee, TrendMicro or eBay are involved. Overall, has the association end of 2013 proud 46 members.
Smartphone, camera, and more devices with Tizen
Early November 2013 Samsung used the Tizen Developer Conference, to introduce the NX300M, the first system camera with Tizen OS. Hardly any differences to the Samsung NX300 are seen by the operating system to recognize. For the time being appears the Tizen camera for approximately 600 euro only in South Korea. For the German market, the NX300M is currently not provided, as the manufacturer on request by COMPUTER image. The Japanese manufacturer Systena showed somewhat earlier than his camera Samsung end October at Japan IT week in Tokyo the first tablet with Tizen OS.
A smartphone from Samsung was expected beginning of 2013. At the Mobile World Congress in February there were developers devices with the operating system during live operation Tizen booth though, they were to assign any manufacturer but. Samsung did not own announcements of March for a Tizen Smartphone in August or September 2013. Apparently, it is supposed to but now before the end of the year are something else.
for 2014, employees from Samsung at the developers Conference already indicated a television with Tizen OS. In addition unwiredview.com reported that the Korean company at CES presents a refrigerator with the operating system beginning January 2014.
Therefore Tizen has a chance
Now iOS and Android split the large Smartphone and Tablet cake among themselves. Microsoft succeeds with Windows phone constantly to enlarge his small piece. BlackBerry does not matter and other systems such as Ubuntu, Firefox OS, Jolla found not widely used yet. Why should succeed big break so just Tizen OS?
Samsung now looks great benefits from the cooperation with Google and the use of Android. Already at the Galaxy S3, however showed that one is not satisfied with the dominance of the Californian in Korea. With custom apps were the Koreans in direct competition with applications from mountain view. In addition, Google keeps the new versions of the Android source code until the release under lock and key. Samsung and other manufacturers can only at this time developing their updates begin.
Overview: the best smartphones
100 mobile phones, Samsung, Apple, HTC, LG & co. In addition, sold Google with the nexus devices of own smartphones and tablets and owns its own hardware manufacturer with Motorola. This is the company not to make money with the hardware, but still thrives on search queries and ad placement. For this reason, the nexus of 5 as well as the Moto G are unbeatably cheap. In the long run, Samsung and other manufacturers must shrink their profit margins to stay competitive. There are so many reasons for Samsung, from Google to solve.
Samsung is well known and powerful
Samsung is now famous enough and has enough power and financial resources to establish its own operating system on the market. The development of Tizen OS is already far without equipment for sale advanced for beginning 2014 the version 3.0 is already announced and if there is the prospect that Samsung sold millions of devices, then no developer wants to deprive its app the audience, so the Tizen app store will quickly fill. With Bada and wave smartphones, Samsung already showed that its developers can combine a successful OS with chic hardware. However, the important for the decision to buy apps in sufficient numbers were missing at that time. A nice side effect for Samsung is that Tizen OS on other devices such as TVs, laptops, or refrigerators can be used. It would be even easier to consumers, to link their devices.
