So, this is the end of the road the MeeGo team at Nokia, as Head of Development of MeeGo Sotiris Makrygiannis joined by other team members announced they are parting ways with the Espoo company.
While everyone was watching Windows Phone parting the iOS / Android curtains, no one noticed Bada and Tizen making cheeky eyes at each other.
It was rumored Samsung might open-source its featurephone OS, but according to Forbes, it’ll now fuse it with the Intel-backed Tizen project.
A cluster of shots were shared with SamMobile, showing a UI that’s markedly similar to pre-ICS Android and even Samsung’s bada. That may be no coincidence, however, since Samsung is one of the leads in the Tizen project, and may be bringing the first Tizen-based device, the Samsung I9500, to market imminently.
