Japan's NTT DoCoMo Shelves Plan to Launch Tizen Phone
Posted: 17-Jan-2014 [Source: WSJ]

[NTT DoCoMo announced today that it will be shelving plans for a Tizen Phone launch, claiming that the market is not big enough for a third mobile OS.]

Mayumi Negishi And Jonathan Cheng -- "Japan's largest mobile carrier said Friday that the smartphone market in Japan wasn't growing fast enough for it to support a third mobile operating system, a reference to Apple Inc. AAPL -0.96% 's iOS operating system and Google Inc. GOOG +0.13% 's Android, which powers the majority of Samsung's devices. In explaining its decision, DoCoMo cited research by IDC Japan showing the country's overall smartphone market grew only 2.2% in the April-to-September period from a year earlier."

"The market is not big enough to support three operating systems at this time," DoCoMo spokesman So Hiroki said Friday."
