    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.

    i bet google probably wasnt all that happy lol, not to mention the phone os market is a very competitive one (this is basically an iOS/android/windows mobile type os, unless im mistaken, right?) just look at how blackberry, the former "only" smartphone, is doing these days, not to mention windows mobile too

    yes it's going to be a whole new Linux based OS. I was thinking the same thing in regards to Samsung and it's partners....

    It seemed real premature to me, in a couple of years if you see an opening but now, another OS is just noise.
