PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The Tizen Greek Community has some screenshots of a very recent build of Tizen running on a Samsung GT-i8800. It looks wholly unremarkable.

One theory is that Samsung want to sweep Tizen for Android on their phones, and hence need same UI as for Android. (Add to it Samsung own app store, and compatibility with Android apps, and Samsung could defeat Google over singe night...)

Other is that using current UI from Android was easy, and could cut "deliver to the market" time.
