Will Bada fuse with the TIZEN project? The Tizen Association was formed in 2012 by executives from Samsung, Intel, NTT Docomo and Vodafone to support the open source software. Having Samsung’s own ecosystem will give them a full control on features, updates and hardware specifications of all of the products. But some say that if Samsung moves away from Android, they would be shooting themselves in the foot. Before they were introduced Android to their phones, Samsung had a line of feature phones. Samsung tried making their own OS for smartphones, Bada – but some say that this was pretty much a flop, and some say that it is still being developed.
