Tizen OS May reach TVs, printers and cameras

Tizen logoThe Tizen OS may finally find its way to printers, cameras and smart TVs.

The Tizen backers may add diffferent versions of the open-source mobile operating system for products outside tablets and smartphones, Intel and other Tizen backers are exploring the idea of adding said Chris Norman, senior technical marketing engineer at Intel.

Norman did not provide a specific time frame for when Tizen would reach the new products, saying those plans are "forward looking."

"We're waiting for Tizen to show up in commercial products," Norman said. "The APIs are set, the bases are in place, we have the foundation for commercial products."

Tizen, Firefox OS, Sailfish and Ubuntu, are all trying to compete with Android and iOS. Intel is backing the development of Tizen along with Samsung.

Samsung, DoCoMo and Orange are expected to offer the first mobile devices based on the OS.

Tizen will also support HTML5 and other Web technologies, which allows developers to write applications that are portable across devices, Norman said.
