Samsung is hoping the new Tizen operating system is going to offer smartphone users an alternative to Android. The Tizen Store which is nearly finished but still under construction, follows the theme of similar online mobile app stores offering users recommendation system, promo page, together with sections for popular, newly released, and top grossing apps.
“Tizen provides a robust and flexible environment for application developers, based on HTML5. With HTML5’s robust capabilities and cross platform flexibility, it is rapidly becoming the preferred development environment for mobile apps and services. The Tizen SDK and API allow developers to use HTML5 and related web technologies to write applications that run across multiple device segments.”
