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.
