Confusion around MeeGo
continues, with the news that the open-source platform is to transition into Tizen
, a new, similarly open-source OS targeting smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, netbooks and ICE systems. Hosted by The Linux Foundation and with development powered by Intel, Samsung and the MeeGo team itself
- which promises that MeeGo users and developers should have a relatively easy time of it, shifting across to Tizen - the new platform is expected to be released in Q1 2012 in both OS and SDK form.
