The Android OS is leading the pack, #2 is Apple’s iOS, #3 is Microsoft’s Windows Phone Mobile.

For those not familiar with the Tizen OS, here is a brief low-down.

The Tizen OS is an open source mobile operating system owned by Samsung. Samsung developed the Tizen OS to minimize its heavy dependence on the Google-owned Android operating system.

Samsung has been pretty serious on the growth of the Tizen OS and has released a number of devices running the Tizen OS in the Indian subcontinent.

The release of the smartphones running the Tizen OS (Samsung Z range) is one of the core reasons behind the rapid growth of the OS.

The news that the Tizen OS is now larger than the Blackberry OS is big and opens up new exciting possibilities of which operating system will be the next victim, Windows Phone Mobile may be?
