Samsung's Tizen OS holds a good future without Android

Some parts of the operating system, including its quick setting panel, look an awful lot like tech giant Samsung’s TouchWiz software for the Android platform. But the rest of the new operating system is pretty clearly not alike android; even though it has got many of the options that a smart phone user would expect from a modern operating system including the phone functions, useful apps, a handy task manager, a driving mode, text to speech feature and some accessibility features, and some other things.

Intel and Samsung have been two of Tizen’s primary backers of this project, and it is likely that Samsung will be one of the first companies that are going to ship smart phones featuring this operating system.

Most of Samsung’s current high-end phones get shipped with Google famous Android software; Tizen could most likely provide Samsung with an alternative that might make Samsung less reliant on Google and it could include Samsung’s own app store, a media store, and some other marketplaces to generate more revenue for Samsung rather than just Google.

The video from the Tizen Experts shows an attractive user interface that is pretty responsive. It has got a multitasking system, which looks pretty much like Android’s. And a useful series of apps and settings which includes a camera app with some built-in effects, security settings feature that would let users set up a firewall or encrypt their SD card and a support for font settings, the widgets and wallpapers on the phone’s home screen.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
