Samsung has been trying to get their new open source mobile platform off the ground, we already heard that the first Samsung Tizen smartphone has been delayed, and that mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo has put their Tizen plans on hold.
Now according to a new report by the WSJ, some more mobile carriers are losing interest in Tizen, as apparently both Sprint and Telefonica (O2) are leaving the Tizen association.
We previously heard that Samsung will be showcasing some Tizen devices at Mobile World Congress later this month, according to the WSJ this is correct and we will get a good look at Tizen.
Samsung are apparently pushing ahead with their plans for the new Tizen OS and smartphones, and the company is looking to launch the devices as soon as possible.
We have seen some photos of a prototype Tizen smartphone from Samsung and also a leaked press shot of a device which we are expecting to see at MWC later this month.
As soon as we get some more information on Samsung’s plans for Tizen, and also some details on specific devices, we will let you guys know.
