Just a few days after a Samsung exec said the company is working to merge its bada platform with Tizen, Samsung now says it is considering the move but has not yet reached an official decision. The company said in a statement:
This is a quick change in direction that leaves us scratching our heads.We are carefully looking at it as an option to make the platforms serve better for customers. 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.
