Acer, Asus and HTC to bring Tizen-based devices in Q3 2012
The upcoming scalable mobile operating system which is developed as a partnership between Samsung Electronics and Intel is expected to be released sometime later in June this year. The OS will feature on various devices including smartphones, tablets, netbooks and in-vehicle infotainment solutions, according to a source of DigiTimes.
It would be the second half of 2012 when we may actually get to see these devices and apparently they will be manufactured by Acer, Asus and HTC. Acer and Asus are preparing Tizen based netbooks which would be mainly focused at emerging market. While there are other manufacturers who will be in-vehicle infotainment solutions based on Tizen.
Tizen is supposedly widely scalable OS which can operate efficiently on smartphones as well as entertainment devices (including Internet TVs). This new operating system is based on Intel’s MeeGo and Samsung’s LiMo platforms and the companies announced their cooperation back in September 2011.
Below we have included two videos for a brief look at Tizen on smartphones and tablets.
