Samsung have sent out an email today to Tizen developers informing them that the Global Free Tizen Store in now open as they have expanded their Tizen Store service coverage to include a massive 182 countries, effective April 29, 2015 !!!! This additional countries will only offer free apps at the moment, but we suspect this is a quick way to expand the coverage of the Tizen Store with the least amount of red tape to plough through.


We have had rumours of a Samsung Global Tizen Smartphone in the works, so this is exactly the right move for a new Tizen flagship to go on-sale in additional markets, as the Samsung Z1 is only available in India and Bangladesh at the moment.

Have you got a free app that you want to distribute on the Tizen Store?
