Samsung’s first Tizen smartphone hits a delay


Samsung has leeched off Android for quite some time now, taking over the open mobile OS and making the Galaxy brand one of the most popular smartphones in the world, rivalling Apple’s iPhone.

The South Korean mobile giant has been cooking up its own mobile OS, to take on Android and others. The first Tizen device will be built in house by Samsung with help from Intel and was set for release sometime in August, but that has been pushed back for two months. Samsung citied problems with the app store as the main reason for the wait.

Tizen 2.1 is reportedly being tested out internally and features email, browser and camera applications. We expect it to have a similar feel to TouchWiz, the skin Samsung develop for their Android devices.
