Tizen explained in simple words…

Tizen is a Linux based operating system (OS) being developed under open source governance for mainly embedded and connected devices like smartphone, smart TVs,  smart cameras, wearable devices etc. The development is guided by a Technical Steering Group including Samsung and Intel.

Profiles: Tizen comes in multiple profiles.

Tizen Mobile – Profile for smartphones.
Tizen Wearable – Profile for wearable devices.
Tizen TV – Profile for smartTV.
Tizen IVI – Profile for In Vehicle Infotainment.
All the profiles are built on top of common shared infrastructure called Tizen Common. This gives the flexibility for the device manufactures to choose one of the profiles develop to suit their own needs or build on top of the common profile to come up with a new profile altogether.

Tizen SDK provides set of tools for the developers to develop HTML5 and native applications.

Tizen’s web framework allows a developer to create web based applications. Developer has the freedom to use HTML, CSS and javascript for development. More about Tizen web framework here.
