Tizen is essentially a combination of 3 factors: Linux, HTML5 and Samsung,
I've said this many times before: Samsung is the only company in the world
which is able to create a new mobile OS.
Even Huawei, which is a Tizen Association member and world's n°2
manufacturer, prefers a wait-and-see stance.
Samsung has Tizen watches, TVs and a phone, which is crucial of course.
Samsung provides the critical mass this project needs, but there are also 2
small companies which have a Tizen niche device:
1) The Egg: http://www.eggcyte.com/features/
2) Click ARM: http://www.imasdtecnologia.com/clickarm/index.php/en/
Congrats to these 2 companies, they will be very well received by our
community imo :)
