Tizen is dead, not delayed according to Eldar Murtazin

Tizen logoThe controversial Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin posted a tweet claiming the Tizen OS is almost dead. He also suggests Samsung won't release more than one device running on Tizen.

Tizen is almost dead. It isn't delay. That's cancel of the whole project. I doubt that samsung will launch more than one device for 2014

Two days ago a Korean media reported Samsung is postponing the release of the first Tizen phones by two months. Previously the I8800 Melius and I8805 Redwood were expected to launch in August, although that never was officially confirmed.

Now, if we are to trust with Murtazin's info, the whole project is going down the drain and Samsung may release just one device before it shuts down everything.

Mr. Murtazin's reports have been more of a miss than hit recently and we recommend to take his claims with a healthy pinch of salt. The Tizen app challenge is still going with $4 million prize. You can learn more about the competition here.

And if the app challenge is not enough for you, yesterday the Tizen team launched Tizen 2.2 Beta SDK. It seems the team behind Tizen is still working and pushing the project ahead.

We doubt Samsung will drop such a huge project so easily especially with all of those man hours put into expanding its application store prior launch, but who knows. Only time will tell, though.
