Tizen has announced 37 official partners, including the BD Multimedia Group with its PayDuo product. PayDuo has become the first payment service member of the Tizen Association.
Tizen OS is an operating system supported by Samsung and Intel and already built into Samsung’s “Gear 2” smart watches. It is an open source system whose development is overseen by the Linux Foundation.
The OS is also tipped to be the default system installed on future smartphones made by major handset manufacturers like Samsung, LG and ZTE.
Tizen’s official announcement:
The Tizen Association has invited BD Multimedia to run a series of product demonstrations at the Tizen Developer Conference taking place from 2 to 4 June in San Francisco.
PayDuo will be the only payment service exhibiting its in-app mobile payment solutions. It will be promoted at a stand provided free of charge by the Association, with a number of demonstrations taking place throughout the three-day event.
More information about the conference can be found at the Tizen Association’s website:
“We have been actively monitoring new mobile operating systems, and the evolving democratization of payment systems for mobile applications on those systems, for over two years.
