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?

To be precise, QML is derived from JavaScript. But we are talking in general. Qt easily allows combining interpretive QML UI with native code backend. So the advised way is it to implement (potentially performance hungry) logic in C++, while the UI in declarative QML.

It's not stillborn though, since Qt has several serious participants (including KDE), and Nokia intends to use it heavily for their lower end devices, which are not polluted by MS yet.
