Tizen to support HTML5 apps

Samsung has announced that its new Operating System Tizen would have apps coded in HTML5. Samsung devices command about 63% market share of all Android devices sold worldwide. That makes Tizen a serious competitor in the mobile OS world once it is launched. At the recently concluded Tizen developer’s conference, Samsung urged developers to develop apps in Tizen and also announced cash rewards to acclaimed apps. This is good news for all HTML5 developers as this is the third OS after Windows 8 and Firefox OS to have native apps in HTML5.
