Tizen, the smartphone operating system spearheaded by Samsung and Intel, has formed partnerships with a few dozen new companies. The list of members is a mix of familiar names, upstarts, service providers, and app developers who have all signed on to help build yet another operating system to try to slow the increasing dominance of Android and Apple iOS.

Samsung yesterday announced at a Tizen conference that it has already released a camera running the OS, but it has yet to release smartphones or tablets. While Samsung has been slow to release a Tizen mobile product, the group of supporters for the OS is growing, which will be a critical factor in its long-term viability. As one board member put it, Tizen OS has a chance of gaining more participants because it does not have stringent requirements like other operating systems, so it is more inclusive and adaptable than competing platforms.

Here's the list of new members:

- 11 Bit Studios
- appbackr
- AppCarousel
- ArtSpark Holdings
- Celsys Inc.
- Citymaps
- Crucial Tec
- eBay
- F@N Communications
- Goo Technologies

- HI Corporation
- Igalia S.L.
- KeyPoint Technologies

- Mobica
- Monotype Imaging Inc.

- Panasonic
- PCPhase
