MeeGo lives on! It breathes another day thanks to the Linux Foundation with their announcement that it'll be replaced with Tizen, a Linux-based, open-source OS. Samsung and Intel are collaborating to lead the development of the platform, with the LiMo Foundation - a consortium of companies including Panasonic Mobile Communications, NTT DoCoMo and SK Telecom among others. Tizen is said to support HTML5 and WAC-based apps and will be designed to run across a wide spectrum of devices, including smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, netbooks and in-car infotainment systems.

The MeeGo project, seems to be on-board with the initiative, promising to "make sure that users of MeeGo can easily transition to Tizen", while assisting Meego developers as well. Tizen is expected in Q1 2012, with the first Tizen-powered devices set to hit the market in the middle of 2012.
