Tizen recently went to Alpha, opening up its code (https://source.tizen.org/release) for developers to look at. A quick look at its 3-tier architecture (https://source.tizen.org/documentation/architecture-overview) suggests its somewhat akin to Android's architecture and will also consist of a bunch of API's making the life of app developers easier. According to the article in ITWorld, the WiFi has recently passed a Samsung Device running Tizen which could mean that we can expect a smartphone running Tizen in the probable near future. Fingers crossed:)"
