Systena began shipping what appears to be the first new mobile device to run the Linux-based Tizen OS. Aimed at developers in Japan, the Systena tablet runs Tizen 2.1 on a quad-core, 1.4GHz Cortex-A9 system-on-chip, features a 10.1-inch (1920 x 1200) display, and offers 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

Is anyone here using Tizen? Is there even something you can run it on besides this tablet?

According to Wikipedia, Tizen runs on some Samsung cameras (NX2000 etc.) and the GT-i9500 prototype.
Samsung originally planned to ship a Tizen phone to end users earlier this year, but they delayed the launch indefinitely.
A few other phone makers are Tizen Association members, but they have nothing on sale either.
Intel, who are otherwise really desperate to get into mobile, preferred to produce the NUC instead of a device that runs Tizen.

Tizen set up an app challenge in July which ends in a few days. That you can only now buy a device for seeing your app in action is pretty pathetic.
