Have you ever heard of the Tizen Operating System? Neither had we until today however what we do know about it is that the HTML 5 based, open source platform is looking to Android’s flourishing Play Store to give it a leg-up. Tizen has clearly taken some inspiration from RIM who famously solved the riddle of how to attract developers to a new platform by sidestepping it completely and simply loading the Android Market to the Blackberry Playbook.
Open Mobile is the company behind the trick, a solution it has named ‘Application Compatibility Layer‘ (ACL) which supposedly allows you to run Android applications on a Tizen device with 100% compatibility and maximum responsiveness. Impressive indeed if the claims are well founded.
Check out the video below that demonstrates Android applications running on Tizen. Will you be keeping your eye on the development of this new platform? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
