He became a major project with The Linux Foundation organizations electronics manufacturer Samsung and Intel processors.
Samsung and Intel Linux Foundation is a donor. Both sit on the board of trustees and holds greater scrutiny in the Linux project, including Tizen mobile operating system. They play a role in the affairs of hardware engineering.
Tizen received support from mobile operators Sprint Nextel from the U.S. on May 7, 2012, committed co-selling Tizen products in the future. The Automotive Grade Linux Workgroup, which is actually a player in automotive technology, also declared himself joined the Tizen Association.

The three new open source operating system above would be dreaming to grow and sesubur Android. They hope to get the support of industrial spray technology, mobile operators, application developers, and accepted in the hearts of the people. Strong ecosystem support and this makes the green robot deserve to be called "smart."
Which will be The Next Android for the future?
