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?

I always hate it when people question alternatives. Be happy there are alternatives, they are not popular or probably won't become popular but who cares?

There are people working on ReactOS, is that ever gonna be used for production purposes? And what aobut the 99999 different Linux distributions, why not make one really good one?

And yes Tizen might not become big but it's a nice project to check the possibilities. Other than that, letting your competition know that you are always working on something new keeps them sharp and that's better for us cosumers.
