Bada + Tizen = Not sure yet

Samsung Electronics seems to be backing away from earlier reports saying it was combining its own mobile platform Bada operating system supported by the Intel Tizen.

“We are carefully looking at it as an option for the platforms to better serve our customers” Samsung said in a statement.

Kang Tae Jin, senior vice president of Samsung in content planning team, said the merger was already underway in an interview with Forbes magazine of this month. Furthermore, Thomas Kang, director of research on  Strategy Analytics said “Samsung will probably confirm the fusion officially when a product is ready, not prematurely”.

Samsung has relied heavily on Google’s Android OS in their hottest selling phones, but may be right to keep alternative ready. While Android is open and available to the manufacturer, Google announced plans last year to acquire rival Samsung Motorola mobility, which would allow him to make their own Android phones. This raised concerns that Google could eventually favor over other suppliers Motorola phone with Android operating system, something Google denies.

Despite the possible alternative for the operating system for the company, Samsung is still heavily focused on the use of Android to compete with Apple products. Tizen, however, could provide an additional operating system may not be used just on smartphones and tablets, but also TVs and other consumer gadgets.

Samsung will continue to support the development based on open source and work with other “players in the industry” as Samsung said in a statement on Forbes.

In any case, this news seems to reaffirm that Samsung has no intention of buying RIM. A few weeks ago rumors came to surface about this possibility, but the South Korean company investing about 12,000 million dollars in research and development in 2012, refused to comment the details of their plans.
