I loathe Android for many reasons. I can’t help it, and I apologise for that. I have my reasons, and I believe they are valid, so here we go.
Forbes are reporting that Bada, Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz-skinned and Linux-based OS, is now effectively dead and will be merged into the Tizen project. Tizen is the evolution of MeeGo, itself a successor to Maemo, and its development as an open source OS is being spearheaded by Intel and Samsung. Tae-Jin King of Samsung confirmed at CES that the company are set to launch devices with the platform by the end of the year As part of the merger, full backwards compatibility will be on offer, with Tizen set to support Bada apps and the SDK. It has however been confirmed that Android and Windows Phone handsets will remain at the top of Samsung’s priority list, meaning that Badzen or whatever it becomes might not have such a bright future after all.
Chris, having endlessly been telling me about Skyrim for 2 weeks, expressed an interest into bringing gaming news, reviews and biased opinions to Digixav.
Needing some sleep having been forced to wake up at 5am today for the Lord Mayor’s Show, I said yes.
And therefore a new gaming section has launched here, with the editorial talents of Bada-man Steinberg, the occasional review thing from me and a NEW member of staff in the form of serial commenter and PS3 fanatic Euan McGinty. Please welcome him with open arms.
Enjoy the posts to come,
Nokia World begins in London next Wednesday and last night at AsiaD Andy Lees, president of Windows Phone, had a few things to say about Nokia’s plans for the event. Bearing in mind that we all love Windows Phone here at Digixav (with the possible exception of Bada-mad Chris), this is great news for us so head past the break to read what he had to say.
Hi guys/occasional girl.
I’m the ‘cool’ one here. I mostly just hate on Symbian and RIM’s shares but I harbour a secret love for Bada, despite not actually knowing what it is. While the others work hard, I’ll be bringing you hilarity and of course more ways to see breasts on the internet because I’m a teenager.
Nice meeting you.
BTW I ❤ Linux.
