LinuxScribe writes "As predicted last September, Samsung has announced plans to merge Tizen with its own Bada platform to create a new mobile OS that will fit well on low- and high-end smartphones. Last year, Bada had more global phone deployments than Windows Phone 7. The merger means each Linux-based platform will have access to more native- and HTML5-based apps."

    Adding a compatibility layer to run apps from one "linux distribution" into another don't sound that much as merging. Maemo and WebOS didn't merged when was released a compatibility layer that enabled Maemo to run WebOS games, neither Linux and Windows got merged when Wine was released.

    In any case, means more apps and then maybe more potential relevance to Tizen, and probably will balance things to have another player in the mobile arena.
