According to media reports, Samsung said on Thursday that this year they will launch smartphones based on the new Tizen operating system, and it’s hoped to replace Google and Microsoft operating systems.

Samsung is the giant of the smartphone market, but its mobile phone products have to rely on other operating system platforms. Its considerable part of the phones use Google’s Android operating system, including the most successful products of the Galaxy S series. In addition, Samsung also introduced a number of models based on Microsoft WP operating system.

The reports said because Samsung realized the disadvantage of relying on someone else’s operating system, Samsung previously developed a Bada platform that is similar to smartphone operating system, and had some success in markets outside the United States. According to Gartner data, in the third quarter of 2012, the Bada global market share reached 3%, which beat Symbian and WP system.

Allegedly, Tizen is a Linux-based smartphone operating system, and it’s mainly developed by Samsung and Intel. The biggest difference compared with Android and iOS is that Tizen will be open to the public, and promised to allow mobile operators to offer their own services on the platform, therefore the Japanese telecommunications carriers Docomo, UK Vodafone, France Telecom, Matsushita, NEC, and a number of mobile operators will also be involved in the development.

In thecurrent smart phone market, most of the people in the industry believe that it is difficult to appear a third popular mobile operating system after the Apple iOS and Google Android, but there are still many vendors trying in this area. In addition, the Samsung official did not give a timetable for the listing of the new Tizen smartphone.

According to media reports, in an event on Monday, the U.S. famous Internet industry investor Mark Cuban said, Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone performance far exceeds that of the Apple iPhone 5.

In the activities, Cuban was asked which electronic products he is using. Cuban replied, lately he replaced his smart phones, which is to replace the original iPhone 5 with theĀ  new Nokia Windows Phone Lumia 920.

Cuban said: “I have an Apple MacBook Air laptop, but I plan to try to use pre-installed Windows 8 Acer notebook. I like my Windows 8 phone, I have two phones, the first is Samsung and the second is the iPhone 5. And the new Nokia Windows phone replaced my iPhone 5.

When asked Why replaced the iPhone 5 with Lumia 920, Kuban said: “Lumia 920 performance exceeds the iPhone 5′s, more than a little.”

But some people in the industry think that the saying that Lumia 920 performance is far more than the iPhone 5, may represent the views of Cuban himself. Lumia 920 hardware configuration is good, such as wireless charging function, touch screen response and so on, but compared with the iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S II, Lumia 920 is not so thin and light, and the weight is also heavier. On the other hand, compared with the iPhone and various Android phones, the Windows Phone mobile phone application choice is not that more.
