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?

No camera?

The Tizen prototype device is relatively simple and not particularly sophisticated - it's also quite large, and doesn't even have a camera.


You say the device doesn't have a camera, yet in the video there is clearly one on the back of the phone, with what looks to be an LED flash. The narrator did say there is no camera app yet though.

Edit: Silly me for watching the video first, I missed this in the article copy:

There’s also an 8 MP camera.


So once they do get the camera app going, it will be nice to see what that reference device can do!
