Sprint joins the Tizen Association as partner member

Sprint has joined the Tizen Association as a partner member.

A few days ago, the Tizen Association announced 15 new partners who joined the group. The list includes Sprint parent SoftBank, handset maker and network vendor ZTE, Chinese search engine Baidu and others.

Sprint first joined the Tizen Association in mid-2012 as a board member but stopped being a board member in mid-2013, according to Sprint spokeswoman Jennifer Walsh. Sprint then reapplied to be a regular partner member. Walsh said that was a formality and that Sprint has always been supportive of Tizen.

The Tizen Association is holding an event just ahead of the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain, to give a sneak peak at the latest Tizen devices.
