Bada OS To Be Folded Into TIZEN

Samsung's Tae-Jin Tang (Senior Vice President of Samsung’s Contents Planning Team) has revealed that Bada OS will be folded into the Tizen open source project. Bada OS is Samsung's own mobile operating system, which has not been as successful as Android globally. 

Tizen is the new name for the MeeGo open source Linux based OS (itself formerly known as Moblin and Maemo). Backed by Intel and Samsung among others, Tizen may be found on some Samsung handsets released by the end of 2012. Interestingly Tae-Jin Tang indicated that Tizen would be used on Samsung's lower end smartphones, while the higher end ones would be running Android or Windows Phone 7.
