It's more like Samsung saw a faster path to market and rode that horse until the foal in the barn was old enough to ride. Tizen is from the LiMo project which was created (just) before the iPhone was introduced, and before you could get Android from Google. It was more an effort to avoid licensing costs of WiMo and Nokia/Symbian. Samsung worked on LiMo for a while, but committed to Android 18 months later (Nov 2007), and put LiMo/Tizen on hold until 2011.
