Samsung was gearing up with the launch of their first Tizen phone but it looks like a series of setbacks will see this launch delayed. Tizen is Samsung’s internally developed operating system, one that was going to give some company flexibility should they choose to not go with Android down the road.
Many analysts will look at the first month of sales of a newly released device to get a feel for just how the device will sell over the long term and devices that have a strong start usually reflect in the overall financial results of the company.
When it comes to mobile phone operating systems, we have three major options, namely Android, Windows Phone and iOS. The three platforms differ greatly in their degree of openness and features but for most people, finding a device that fits with one of these OS versions is not a difficult choice.
This past weekend, Samsung reported a fire at one of its data centers. The fire occurred at the SDS building which is located in Gwacheon, South Korea and as a result of it, several Samsung services were unavailable for many hours.
