TIZEN Association To Accelerate Development of Tizen Operating System


Today the Tizen Association announced an additional 15 partners who are adding their voice and expertise to the development of the Tizen Operating System (OS).

The Partner Program officially launched with 36 members in November 2013; its newest members include mobile game publishers, operators, application developers, mobile software management vendors and major telecommunications companies.

The Tizen Association is an industry consortium that supports the development of an open source software platform and operating system - Tizen - which supports a wide range of connected devices. New members have the potential to join relevant Tizen Association Working Groups and to participate in Tizen Association meetings, giving them more access, insight and input into the development of the Tizen OS.

"Tizen allows vendors and operators the freedom and flexibility to decide what type of service is best provided to the end-users," said Ryoichi Sugimura, a Tizen Association Board Member from NTT DOCOMO. "We are gaining support from all segments of the connected device ecosystem, as more organizations realize the opportunity in providing smart phones and connected devices globally from the high-end to the low-end of the market. The convergence of knowledge will make Tizen a catalyst for providing more innovation not just in smart phones - every vendor and operator will have the ability to provide a huge variety of customizable services to their customer."

The 15 new members, alphabetically, are:

AccuWeather
Acrodea
Baidu
CloudStreet
Cyberlightning
DynAgility
Gamevil
Inside Secure Ixonos
Nomovok
Piceasoft
Red Bend Software
SoftBank Mobile
Sprint
ZTE

No vendors have yet begun selling Tizen-installed phones, but several devices are slated to be shown at the Mobile World Congress event later this month. Allegedly leaked pictures of an upcoming Tizen phone from Samsung, one of the OS?s main backers, have also appeared online. Tizen could also be used on tablets, laptops, and perhaps even printers, TVs, and cameras.

In January, Japan's NTT Docomo said it was dropping plans to launch a Tizen-based smartphone, citing a lack of consumer demand beyond the scope of Google's Android or Apple's iOS systems.
