Tizen Is Poised To Challenge Google And Apple In 2013 For Mobile Platform Supremacy - Page 2
What Gives Tizen The Edge It Needs To Challenge The Big Boys?
A few years ago Google and Apple realized the importance of selling app developers on the idea of using their platforms for app creation. Developers can’t wait to begin developing for Tizen, because of its universal acceptance of HTML5. App developers have begun to make a major shift towards HTML5, as their preferred app development language of choice. The Tizen and developer relationship appear (at first glance) to be a match made in heaven.
Android has always been difficult for carriers, such as Verizon, to make its own services available. Tizen will prove its enhanced flexibility to mobile carriers, which should cause it to become the preferred platform. iOS (Apple) currently owns approximately 15% of the mobile market share, while Android (Google) owns around 70%. Because of these reasons, Tizen has an opportunity to gain a significant chunk of the market share from Google and Apple. Google does not rely heavily on Android sales to sustain itself, so Google will not be too affected by the rise of Tizen. Apple, on the other hand, stands to be more hurt by the introduction of Tizen into the market.
Will 2013 be the year of Tizen? Only the future will tell, but if mobile carriers, app developers, and the general public are attracted to Tizen’s flexibility and user friendly interface, then the future will be bright for Tizen.
