As Firefox enters the market for smartphones OS, there are more entering the fray as well.  Now, Samsung has come out with Tizen.  LG recently bought WebOS from HP as well, albeit purportedly for their TVs. Tizen builds on MeeGo and LiMo to create a new experience OS for Mobile.

The defining experience when using a smartphone is the diverse set of apps, the little programs, you load on it to make the phone do things. Increasingly, there’s a choice of operating system, too. Sure there’s Apple iOS, Google Android, Windows Mobile — but at a big conference on mobile technology in Barcelona, Spain, a Samsung phone using a strange operating system was announced.
Samsung’s new OS is called Tizen, and there are other rivals coming soon, including one from the browser maker, Firefox.

Sarah Rotman Epps, senior analyst at Forrester Research, joins Marketplace Tech host David Brancaccio to discuss where Tizen will be used and why Samsung is launching the new alternative system.


Here is a video of the device which is offered to the developers to build the new apps.
