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.

Sure.

Always puzzled me that Samsung (and others) think that they get sales due to to software differentiation. They get sales because they are cool ANDROID phones. The software differentiation costs them a bunch to develop and the majority of users use it once then simply don't care and mostly ignore it. The rest just don't like it. Tizen is as much a waste of time as Touchwiz or whatever it's called. Sure, some hardware features require custom software - but apart from the cameras, all the other rubbish they add is just that - rubbish for the vast majority of users. My next phone will likely be another Samsung becuase I love the screens - but the Google Play edition
