Samsung backtracks on bada/Tizen merger plans

Days after a senior Samsung executive told Forbes that company is working to merge its bada platform with Linux-based device software platform Tizen, Samsung now maintains it is considering the move but has not yet reached an official decision. "We are carefully looking at it as an option to make the platforms serve better for customers," the company said in a statement. "As Samsung's essential part of multi-platform portfolio, bada will continue to play an important role in democratizing smartphone experience in all markets. Samsung will also support open source based development and continue to work together with other industry stakeholders." Article
