PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Japanese firm Systena Corp. has announced the first Tizen-based tablet, which also appears to be the first Tizen product of any kind. The unnamed Systena Tizen tablet offers high-end features including a 1.4GHz, quad-core Cortex-A9 system-on-chip, 2GB of RAM, and a 10.1-inch, 1920 x 1200-pixel display, specs which come close to matching the most powerful Android tablets currently on the market." Interesting.

The Tizen SDK is so thoroughly poisoned that Tizen can't properly be considered open source any more. I'll wait for proper GNU/Linux or stick with AOSP, thanks.

Not only that, they had to bring the brain-dead C++ Bada SDK into Tizen.

So C++ developers targeting Tizen would need to develop on the Symbian C++ dialect style with double step initialization, error checking macros, Hungarian notation, ...

Strange reasoning; you don't have to use to use the Tizen SDK btw.

Android isn't the only other option. If we're looking for a next-gen platform, why not a more flexible option like Jolla or Ubuntu? It's not like Tizen is the only option coming to market to challenge Android!
