A mobile platform from Samsung that runs a proprietary OS based on the RTOS (RealTime OS) operating system. Meaning "ocean" in Korean, bada was introduced in 2009 with handsets available under its Wave brand in the following year. In 2013, Samsung announced that Bada would be merged into the Tizen open source project, and support was terminated by 2015 (see Tizen).


An open source mobile operating system supported by the Tizen Association (formerly LiMo Foundation) and the Linux Foundation. Introduced in 2011 and evolving from the MeeGo OS and LiMo 4 framework, Tizen is based on Linux, HTML5 and WAC (Wholesale Applications Community). Samsung used Tizen in its second- and fourth-generation smartwatches (see Samsung Gear and Samsung Gear S), and at the Tizen Developer Conference in mid-2014, the first Tizen smartphone (Samsung Z) was introduced for the Russian market. Tizen-based in-vehicle systems from Intel and Tizen TVs from Samsung were also demonstrated. For more information, visit See MeeGo, LiMo, HTML5 and WAC.
