Tizen OS is primarily developed for smartphones and tablets, but there are possibilities that the mobile OS could be used in printers, cameras and Smart TVs.
Intel and other Tizen backers are exploring ides to use Tizen in products outside smartphones and tablets, which could be printers, smart TVs, cars, digital cameras, said Chris Norman, senior technical marketing engineer at Intel.
Intel and Samsung are the big backers of Tizen and both of the companies are adding new features and contributing code. Samsung, DoCoMo and Orange will be the first to bring Tizen powered devices. Tizen is competing with new Mobile OS like Ubuntu Touch, Selfish and Firefox OS.
“We’re waiting for Tizen to show up in commercial products,” Norman said. “The APIs are set, the bases are in place, we have the foundation for commercial products.”
Currently the mobile OS space is mostly dominated by Apple IOS and Google Android with virtually no competitions from other players like Windows and Blackberry.
Samsung till now producing phones with Android and Bada OS. It also developed digital cameras powered by Google Android.
