PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Japanese firm Systena Corp. has announced the first Tizen-based tablet, which also appears to be the first Tizen product of any kind. The unnamed Systena Tizen tablet offers high-end features including a 1.4GHz, quad-core Cortex-A9 system-on-chip, 2GB of RAM, and a 10.1-inch, 1920 x 1200-pixel display, specs which come close to matching the most powerful Android tablets currently on the market." Interesting.

Too bad Tizen is LESS open than Android, now.

The Tizen SDK is so thoroughly poisoned that Tizen can't properly be considered open source any more. I'll wait for proper GNU/Linux or stick with AOSP, thanks.

Not only that, they had to bring the brain-dead C++ Bada SDK into Tizen.

So C++ developers targeting Tizen would need to develop on the Symbian C++ dialect style with double step initialization, error checking macros, Hungarian notation, ...

Strange reasoning; you don't have to use to use the Tizen SDK btw.
How is Android more open than Tizen exactly ?

Android isn't the only other option. If we're looking for a next-gen platform, why not a more flexible option like Jolla or Ubuntu? It's not like Tizen is the only option coming to market to challenge Android!

"to challenge Android!" seems like too much of a wishful thinking. Maybe to challenge WP. Maybe ...but even that probably not very likely.

Tizen seems to be focusing primarily on HTML5 from what I can see even though it fully supports C++ native apps. I don't like HTML5, period. C++ and Java for me thx.

Try out HTML5 canvas under JavaScript, WebGL, and you don't need much more for a tablet. And your application is already cross platform.

Qt for Tizen is on the way. Google it.
Last month an alpha was released for it.

What happened to Enlightenment on Tizen? Wasn't that supposed to become the native layer?
