Yoon said Samsung was working to introduce at least two smartphones running on its own Tizen operating system, a major step in the market leader's bid to break out of the Android universe.

No-one cares. Why? Because the market it already saturated with competing smartphone OSes. From the big 3 systems (iOS, Android, WP8.x) to the smaller players such as BB10, Sailfish OS, Firefox OS etc etc, there's just too many systems. Much like we saw in the personal computer boom in the 80's, there will be a plethora of different mobile OSes as companies latch on to a completely new platform. Some will die a premature death, some will be stillborn, and some will live on for another 20 years. Whilst I cannot see Apple or Google's mobile offering fading out in 10 years, I doubt i'll be saying the same about Tizen.
