I know they are backed. Meego was also backed, and devices never came (besides N9 effort). So as I said - until devices will starting coming, this won't help much.

N9 is/was great, the problem is not Meego, the problem is Nokia. They just "give up".

From a developer point of view, your statement don't make sense to me. I need to see what kind of development tools/SDK out there to figure out how serious I should take on a platform.

For a project that still in its infancy, a release of version 1 of SDK is a good sign that this project is getting serious. At least, they (as the people in Tizen) are serious about it.

I don't think Tizen is expecting a consumer end device soon, but for developers, I suspect some are trying it on existing Android (Linux) devices. If you expecting new devices that run mainly on Tizen, you would have to wait. This is expected from project that just in its current stage.
