Samsung delays Tizen launch in Russia

  • Samsung (OTC:SSNLF, OTC:SSNGY) has postponed the launch of the Samsung Z (featuring the new Tizen operating system) which was scheduled to go on sale in Russia during the third quarter of this year.
  • The company did not give any future timing to the launch, but cited the need to "further enhance the Tizen ecosystem."
  • The delay will be costly to Samsung, which reported softer numbers and missed second-quarter estimates earlier this month.

    A Samsung spokesman further clarified today that "further enhance the Tizen ecosystem" actually means that the Samsung 'engineers' were not yet able to fully copy the Android code and UI; and that further reverse engineering will be required.

     

    Samsung apologizes for the delay in Tizen, and blames Google as the culprit because of their "difficult to read Android source code."
