Following partner Nokia, Intel has now announced it is to abandon the MeeGo platform as well. Instead, it will be working on a new mobile platform with Samsung that’s called Tizen.
Though it will be possible to develop native apps for Tizen, the companies will promote its HTML5 engine toward app developers. The core of Tizen will in part be built from what Intel and Nokia developed for MeeGo. Other bits will come from another project that is merged in Tizen; LiMo. The first Samsung hardware with Tizen is expected nid-2012 while the SDK’s should de ready in four to six months from now. What will happen to Bada is unknown.
