Reports suggest that Samsung is pursuing a partnership with Mozilla, hoping to bring Firefox OS together with Tizen. At a recent conference, SamsungÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Chief Secretary Wonsuk Lee, noted that a relationship between the two is possible. Not only is it possible, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s technically feasible.
Both operating systems are HTML5 based, meaning apps written for one app can be used for the other. That also means mobile apps for Chrome could be pinched, though those are currently not optimized for mobiles.
Tizen is based on Linux and holds web-kit and other open source technologies, supports native method but also can support HTML5 app developing platform, can be used on not only mobile but beyond such as cars and home appliances, and supports from manufacturers of different countries are strong.
While both are said to be used for low-end devices, Tizen is also meant for higher-end offerings. That would give Mozilla an inroad to a market segment they previously hadnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t pursued.Ã‚Â [signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]Via
