diffrence is this gonna make?? They should just focus on the hardware where they excelled. Btw, ex Wave 2 user here.....was a good option when it was launched due to price/performance at that time....comes Wave 3....absolutely no value due to the mass powerful mid-range Android phones...
Unless it is priced like a Galaxy Young and perform like an S3, there's absolutely no reason to buy another 'try me out' OS with no apps.
Seriously, Tizen looks like a good idea. With Bada, it'll run 100% of all Android apps with similar responsiveness (according to Open Mobile, who is responsible for the ACL) and it unties Samsung from Google. However, neither Samsung nor Intel have a history of producing good software. I really would have liked them to incorporate KDE Plasma Active UI in the mix.
[citation][nom]kartu[/nom]@"oh it got no apps" guy, it can run Android apps.Apple is not enough a competitor, so Google might get Intelish, good to see someone is trying to create alternative OSes, especially when they try to stick to existing standards (in Tizen's case, web)[/citation]
So can Sailfish, doesn't mean they'll get apps though. I also hate the focus HTML 5 is getting; I don't like the idea of wasting power needlessly on a hand-held, and a good designer would redesign the GUI to fit the platform anyways.

Yes, Zak, because Android isn't Linux based, is it now?My god, who hired this guy?[/citation]
Hell, forget Android... Phones have been running Linux since at least 2003. I think the Motorola A760 was one of the earlier ones.
Who hired this guy indeed. But hey, better 10 years late than never I suppose.....
