Samsung is going to launch Tizen new mobile o.s in India on new sub-$100 smartphone. They had a plan to launch it in Russia but they scrap the plan. Samsung mostly device are running android o.s platform. Android is responsible for their recent success over Apple. They thoroughly enjoyed selling their overprice devices but cheap compare to Apple iPhone. But now they are coming up with their own Tizen operating System.
Why they choose specifically India?
There is section in India which has capability of purchase high end phone and those will not give a shit to $100 Tizen phone.
Its will be good to see weather Samsung can survive without Android !
