Tizen OS to run Android apps

Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform supported by leading mobile operators, device manufacturers and from next year if everything goes like is planed, the Korean company will be able to allocate more resources for the mobile operating system. This will be the new source mobile platform that Samsung and Intel have collaborate together, under Tizen Association umbrella. Do not consider that this “game” is only between the two giants, because also Sprint joined recently.

In a video presentation, we can see various Android apps, such as Facebook, Winamp, and some games, running on Tizen OS, without a disturbing lag, and this thanks to OpenMobile, and they have 100% compatibility. OpenMobile, is the company which helps to adapt apps, for specific platforms, to run to another as well.

The road till the end, when a finalized Tizen-powered device will hit the market, it will not be easy to introduce another platform to the masses, but as a good part, we will not have to worry about the apps, because plenty of them will be ready to use after a negotiate between OpenMobile and Samsung’s “Application Compatibility Layer”.

As a feature from Tizen, Samsung already unveiled a prototype phone, which runs Tizen OS, and inside of it we could find out some details, like including a dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a Super AMOLED HD Plus display with 1280 x 720 resolution. Being a prototype, we can have a lot of changes till the final product.
