Samsung to Merge Bada With Intel-Backed Tizen

Reuters:

Samsung Electronics Co. said on Tuesday it planned to merge its ‘Bada’ mobile software with a platform backed by chipmaker Intel Corp in its latest push to diversify away from Google’s Android. […]

In September two Linux software groups, one backed by Samsung, and another by Intel, agreed to jointly develop Tizen, a new operating system for cellphones and other devices, by merging their LiMo and Meego platforms in a bid to gain wider industry and consumer support. “We have an effort that will merge Bada and Tizen,” a Samsung spokesman confirmed senior vice president Kang Tae-jin as telling Forbes magazine in an interview last week.

Sure, that’ll work. Just take them and smoosh them together. It’s easy to merge operating systems.
