Good news: Samsung's Tizen no longer worst code ever. Bad news: It's still pretty awful

Samsung was just Tizen – homegrown Linux again pitched at n00bs

Anyone hoping that Samsung would use its Tizen operating system to shake up the mobile market has again had their dreams dashed, after the company emitted a for-n00bs phone running the OS.

Samsung sets fire to $9m by throwing it at Tizen devs

Samsung will throw US$9m at developers willing to have a go at making apps for smartphones running Tizen. Tizen is now a Linux Foundation project, so enjoys independent oversight and is free to adopt.

Last year, makers of Android Wear devices shipped just 720,000 units, according to analyst house Canalys.

Want a Tizen phone to build apps for? Now's your chance – provided you don't need it to work

It's looking worse and worse for Samsung's Linux-based Tizen OS as a smartphone platform contender. Not only are we unlikely to see a consumer mobe running Tizen this year, but it seems even developers will be hard-pressed to get their hands on working kit. The Tizen Project emailed devs with information about the next round …

Nokia: Read these Maps, Samsung – we're HERE for the Gear

For Nokia, getting Samsung – the world’s biggest smartphone manufacturer – to use its HERE Maps is a huge win. Unfortunately it’s not Samsung throwing Google Maps out of its smartphones but rather a realisation that Google isn’t going to rush to port maps to Samsung's home-grown operating system, Tizen. The “HERE for Gear” …

Samsung Z Tizen OS mobe is post-phoned – this time for good?

Samsung's 'OS of Everything' Tizen still has little to offer

Analysis The first smartphone running the Linux-based Tizen OS is here, even if it will likely be a long time before most of us can get our hands on it. But forget about phones – Tizen is also about cars, TVs, home automation, wearables, and more. At least, that was the message put forth at the third annual Tizen Developer Conference …
