Now this is interesting. While Samsung has been busy with launching new colourways for their flagship Galaxy SIII smartphones, as well as pushing out their latest Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 products, it looks like they’ve also not forgotten about their in-house OS, Tizen.
Tizen, the mysterious OS which only briefly showcased its open-sourced potential to the public almost six months ago, is the result of a partnership between Samsung and Intel – a partnership which, many would also remember, came about from Nokia’s systematic dismantling of all things non-Windows Phone, which included MeeGo, from which the Tizen platform is now building from.
However, things have been rather quiet on the Tizen front (at least in the public) for months now. So it does come as a pleasant surprise to see a WiFi Alliance certification entry for a smartphone model called GT-I9300_TIZEN. While it may not mean much for the time being, a smartphone powered by the open-sourced Tizen would be very interesting indeed.
