Chip Shot: Intel to Support Open Source Software Platform, Tizen™

Today, Intel joined Linux Foundation and LiMo Foundation™ in support of Tizen™, a new Linux-based open source software platform for multiple device categories. The standards-based Tizen project will be hosted at the Linux Foundation and offer an operating system and a robust, flexible standards-based HTML5 and WAC web development environment within which device-independent apps can be produced. Tizen builds upon the strengths of both LiMo and MeeGo and Intel will be working with our MeeGo partners to help them transition to Tizen. The initial release of Tizen is expected in Q1’2012, enabling the first devices in the market mid-2012.
