HistoryEdit

 
Tizen and the mobile software distributions it is related to

In 2011, the Tizen Association was formed.[5] Its members represented major sectors of the mobility industry. Current members include: Fujitsu, Huawei, Intel, KT, NEC Casio, NTT DoCoMo, Orange, Panasonic, Samsung, SK Telecom, Sprint and Vodafone.[6]

On May 7, 2012, American wireless carrier Sprint Nextel (now Sprint Corporation) announced it had agreed to become part of the Tizen Association and planned to include Tizen powered devices in their future lineup.[7]

On September 16, 2012, the Automotive Grade Linux Workgroup announced it will work with the Tizen project as the reference distribution optimized for a broad set of automotive applications such as instrumentation cluster and in-vehicle-infotainment (IVI).[8]

On October 2013, the first Tizen tablet was shipped by Systena. The tablet was part of a development kit exclusive to Japan.[9][10][11]

On May 14, 2014, it was announced that Tizen would ship with Qt.[12] This will allow Tizen to support Qt apps.

On February 21, 2016, Samsung announced the Samsung Connect Auto, a connected car solution offering diagnostic, Wi-Fi, and other car-connected services. The device plugs directly into the OBD-II port underneath the steering wheel.[13]

On November 2016 Samsung said they would be collaborating with Microsoft to bring .NET support to Tizen.[14]

Devices that run TizenEdit

Security risksEdit

On April 3, 2017, Vice reported on its "Motherboard" website that Amihai Neiderman, an Israeli security expert, has found more than 40 zero-day vulnerabilities in Tizen's code, allowing hackers to remotely access a wide variety of current Samsung products running Tizen, such as Smart TVs and mobile phones.[18] Only after the article was published did Samsung, whom Neiderman tried to contact months before, reach out to him to follow up on the report.[18]
