Intel to work with its MeeGo partners to help them transition to Tizen
US chipmaker Intel has joined Linux Foundation and LiMo Foundation in support of Tizen, a new Linux-based open source software platform for multiple device categories.
Linux Foundation will host the the standards-based Tizen project, which will offer an operating system and a robust, flexible standards-based HTML5 and WAC web development environment to produce device-independent apps.
Intel will be working with its MeeGo partners to help them transition to Tizen, which builds upon the strengths of both LiMo and MeeGo.
The initial release of Tizen is expected in the first quarter of 2012, and the first devices in the market by mid-2012.
