PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Yesterday, during the most insane launch event in the history of technology, Samsung unveiled its next big flagship, the Galaxy S4. I really couldn't care less about this new phone - another plastic phone that looks exactly like its predecessor - but the flurry of interviews with Samsung executives that followed is far more interesting. With them, Samsung has repositioned Tizen - and if you connect the dots, something interesting is starting to appear.

Looking at the SDK documentation and information from a previous discussion here, Tizen is now making use of the former Bada SDK for native programming.

Bada reminds me of Symbian, using a brain dead version of a C++ dialect that brings me bad memories from Symbian C++.

Additionally it makes use of Hungary notation and even Microsoft nowadays advises against it on their best practices documents.

So I doubt any developers will jump into the platform.
