Samsung and Intel's budding Android competitor won't come to Smart TVs anytime soon

Looking forward to a unified ecosystem of Tizen-based devices? Hold your breath: the fledgling Android-competitor's roll out isn't picking up any steam. Speaking at the Smart TV Global Summit this week, Samsung's Kim Hyun-seok played down the OS' television rollout. "We've seen much progress in the Tizen TV, but the phone will come first." In other words, it could be awhile. A flagship device to carry Intel and Samsung's mobile experiment was originally slated to launch earlier this year, but these days a 2014 launch is looking more likely. Of course, if you're chomping at the bit to play with the OS, there are options.
