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?

Here is what I personally don't get...why? Why would you want this? What problem does it solve? What makes this worth giving up the millions of apps on Android?

The way I see it there really isn't much you an do to make Android any more "open" as you an already root it, add a CLI, mod it how you want, so like Windows on ARM I really don't see what this brings to the table that would make me as a retailer want to carry this over the bazillion Android tablets and phones.
