Tizen to make its debut next year

According to a new report, the open-source mobile OS Tizen will finally see the light of day in 2013.
Tizen is notable because it is backed by Samsung and has support from Japanese major carrier DoCoMo and global powerhouse Vodafone.

At least one phone running Tizen will be launched next year, although the report could not pinpoint a timeframe nor any specs.

It appears that at first the phone will be launched in Japan, with other countries getting the phone soon after.

Samsung, who has made a fortune becoming an Android market leader, will look to diversify somewhat with Tizen, along with their upcoming Windows Phone 8 offerings.

Tizen is completely open sourced and based on open standards and is hosted by the Linux Foundation.

Hosted by the Linux foundation? Intriguing.
