PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Tizen reached 1.0 only recently, but there's already a Tizen Conference going on - and during that conference, Samsung had a relatively barebones reference device running Tizen 1.0. The Handheld Blog has a seven minute video of the device in action, and while I'm very happy big players are investing in all these alternative platforms, I do have to wonder - how viable are they?

Tizen prediction...

They will get a decent release which could easily be a solid base to build a good developer and user community around and then they will just scrap it all and start from scratch again.

That's what happened with Maemo (including all the whole GTK-Qt and Maemo 6 nonsense). That's what happened with Meego. That is what is going to happen with Tizen.

The whole line is cursed.

I would like to see some more noise about Boot 2 Gecko... But Mozilla's incompetence is pretty well established. Lack of focus and lack of sustained marketing which leads to things just being forgotten...
