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?

Tizen prediction...

They will get a decent release which could easily be a solid base to build a good developer and user community around and then they will just scrap it all and start from scratch again.

That's what happened with Maemo (including all the whole GTK-Qt and Maemo 6 nonsense). That's what happened with Meego. That is what is going to happen with Tizen.

The whole line is cursed.

I would like to see some more noise about Boot 2 Gecko... But Mozilla's incompetence is pretty well established. Lack of focus and lack of sustained marketing which leads to things just being forgotten...

This is because Nokia moved to Windows Phone. Samsung and others are looking to another OS than Android, but not for WP that is linked to Nokia too much.
