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?

I'm a heavy user of Google services and Android.

But I'll use a Tizen or boot2gecko phone over Android even if they aren't as good.

As much as I like Android compared to every other phone OS I'd rather use a truly free OS. The problem with Tizen is that the SDK has a proprietary licence so for the moment boot2gecko is winning for me.
