Are you secretly gunning for the Tizen OS to make big waves? Well, bad news; a Japanese carrier has delayed its support for the operating system.

NTT Docomo is the company in question. It was originally planning to launch a Japanese Tizen OS phone early this year, but has cancelled those plans. The reason? Timing.

Engadget were told via a company spokesperson that the current Japanese market didn’t accomodate three different moible OSes.

We don’t know when the company will decide that the time is right, but it looks like Tizen will continue to struggle on in the meantime.
