The Tizen application programming interfaces are based on HTML5 and will support smartphones, tablet computers, interactive TVs and in-vehicle infotainment. These APIs will cover various platform capabilities, such as messaging, multimedia, camera, network, and social media. For those who use native code in their applications, the Tizen SDK will include a native development kit.
Intel will support Tizen with its Intel AppUp developer program and a developer framework based on HTML5 and WAC standards.Samsung adds Tizen to its lengthy list of supported mobile operating systems which includes Android, Windows Phone, and its own bada OS- a custom-built mobile OS which the company will make open source in 2012.
The Tizen project, which will be hosted by the Linux Foundation, is aiming to have the initial release of the new OS available in the first quarter of 2012 and the first phones using the new OS could make an appearance in mid-2012.
