Samsung apes Microsoft’s strategy, throws money at developers for Tizen apps

July 9th, 2013 at 9:45 PM
Samsung Tizen Apps Prize Money

The market hasn’t exactly been kind to operating systems that aren’t iOS or Android, which is why Microsoft has been smartly offering app developers large sums of cash to create apps for its Windows Phone 8 platform. Now CNET reports that Samsung is pursuing a similar strategy when it comes to Tizen, the new operating system that the company is developing to hedge its investments in Google’s Android operating system. Specifically, CNET says that Samsung is teaming with Intel to hold a Tizen app development challenge that will give as much as $200,000 in prize money to individual developers and a grand total of $4 million in prize money. Developers must submit their apps by November 1st and winners will be announced in December.
