No Tizen Smart Phones for the US market

For some months, the Korean tech giant and mobile device manufacturer Samsung Inc has been teasing about offering a brand new and different Linux-based Tizen OS smart phone device— going on so far as to suggest that the platform gives the tech giant a hedge against banking too much on their Google’s Android OS based device success, and setting an expected debut date for their new mobile devices.

No Tizen Smart Phones for the US market

With a possible February upcoming kickoff date looming for a high-end Tizen smart phone slated to sell through the famous Japanese carrier NTT Docomo and the French telecom Orange SA, another new Fierce Wireless report has quoted that a Samsung executive hinting about the units would not be offered in the United States mobile market.

The United States mobile market is an oversaturated one, making a really successful launch less likely, and this is said by Mr. Ryan Bidan who is the Samsung U.S. Mobile Operations product marketing director. With the famous Korean manufacturer already suffering from their ill effects from a slowdown in the smart phone sales, picking the perfect spot at the absolute perfect time for the device’s debut makes a real difference.

The Samsung Inc.’s mobile division produces two-thirds of the Korean company’s earnings, and the vendor has already blamed the growing smart phone competition and the crowded marketplace for an expected slide in the Q4 sales and the operating profit.

Samsung has also suggested all along that a brand new Tizen OS-based handset will be a door-opener to the new markets. And so, they’re not going to launch it in the US market.
