With Firefox OS gone for good, Samsung's Tizen OS is now moving one step forward as the Tizen Store gains access to 41 new countries, including Niger, Cuba, Liechtenstein, Palestine, and others.

Tizen OS has been around for a while, and back in April 2015, the Tizen Store expanded its coverage to no less than 182 countries. Now, Samsung expands the reach of its app store for Tizen-driven devices to no less than 222 countries.

According to Tizen Experts, "Developers can now target all these additional countries with their apps and games, and even branch out by creating localised content, which has its own Unique Selling Proposition (USP)." Sadly, only three Tizen OS smartphones have been released so far - Samsung Z1, Z2, and Z3. However, 2017 might still hold some surprises for Samsung fans on a tight budget.

The new countries that have been added are mostly small ones like Palau or the Vatican City State, but some well-known state entities that have been left out until now are present in the list. A few such countries that should be mentioned are Equatorial Guinea, Palestine, Liechtenstein, San Marino, or Cuba.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
