I guess you might have noticed we were offline today and the connection is still very spotty right now (will connect, but drops after a few seconds).

It looks like a Tizen Smartphone launch in India is on the cards, and the launch date is November 2014 for our Linux based friend. Samsung believe that they can use content to differentiate themselves from the competition, enabling them to maintain their lead in the Indian Smartphone market.
