A brand new smart phone operating system, which is developed by a global collaboration of famous tech firms to rival Google's popular Android OS and the Apple's iOS, is going to be launched in the next few months, and the news is according to the famous Japanese mobile phone operator, the NTT Docomo.
The open source OS offering which is called the Tizen, primarily based on the Linux operating system, is expected to be installed on the smart phones the end of this March, according to a NTT Docomo spokesman.
The Tizen OS is the product of a smart tie-up among some companies from Japan, Europe, China, South Korea, and the United States and it comes despite of some tensions among the Asian neighbours over the recent territorial disputes. The main consortium, which makes up the Tizen Association, includes the US hardware giant Intel, Japan's famous Fujitsu, South Korea's tech giant Samsung and the famous LG Inc., China's Huawei, and the European mobile carriers, named the Vodafone and the Orange.
Unlike all of the Android and iOS Operating Systems, the Tizen also allows the users to develop something freely whatever the developers envision because it is an open-source and easy to operate operating system. The Japanese mobile phones had once led the world with their cutting-edge technologies, such as the Docomo's famous i-mode, which is the world's first ever mobile web service, and the software including the electronic payment systems.
