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?

Community support is just too little to ensure OS viability in the break neck smartphone environment. They are simply moving too slow and lack UI competencies.
Look what happened with full OSS Openmoko, they had a year headstart before IPhone and haven't even managed to produce just a working phone basics, nevertheless working stable apis and killer apps.
