PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The Tizen Greek Community has some screenshots of a very recent build of Tizen running on a Samsung GT-i8800. It looks wholly unremarkable.

And now Symbian is near death.

Not a fair point, when you see that Nokia themselves have voluntarily took every step to bury it. At the time where the infamous "burning platform" memo which started this process was released, the Symbian ecosystem was very much alive, largely dominating the smartphone industry, and still growing.

While there were some reasoned arguments for Nokia to switch to another OS, be it Meego or Windows Phone, in the long run, concerns about Symbian's short-term (5-year) market success were not one of them. Even the current WP strategy could have kept the company flying on Symbian sales a lot longer, if the management did not take the option of throwing the company's assets in the water and yelling them to learn to swim quickly.

I see you still think that Symbian was viable after all... ;) (and you overlook that its app ecosystem wasn't really very lively)
