Samsung's focus should first and foremost be volume so that the platform can be built up and reach a respectable place in the market. Samsung probably doesn't sell Tizen products outside of certain regions due to market saturation in places like Western Europe, Anglosphere and the US, selling in those places would give them little sales and market share gains. Developing nations have the most market growth and the least saturation. Also in those places like the US Samsung sells mostly high end products, Tizen isn't ready for high end products yet due to its lack of maturity.

A 3rd world country is a country low levels of Human and economic development. The United States has very high levels of Human and economic development, in fact it is higher than most parts of the world. 2nd world countries are in between the 1st and 3rd world extremes of Human development, former communist and Soviet nations fall under this category.

I know. But it doesn't hurt to hope and dream from time to time. In my ideal world the manufacturer should concentrate only on the hardware and document it as much as possible and let the software to others (communities like for OpenELEC[*]). I know it's not possible in this world that's why I said my ideal world.

* I got to the conclusion that I almost always prefer to use open source software than closed one. First for the quality of the software and second by philosophy (even if I am not a coder and I can't understand a source code)

Mainly this means countries where you have death penalty, no gun control to speak of, no social benefits to people and generally are run by mob rule.
This really tickled me

I think we need to get this thread back on track. And I do so By announcing the proclamation of independence, simply by stating that all countries with an average screen size of the total populatio, smaller than 55 inch will be counted as third world countries in this thread and beyond.

A funny thing was that when I was visiting Dubai last time, one family had bought 9 Samsung TVs(all tizen) and was about to check in stupid world.
