Systena began shipping what appears to be the first new mobile device to run the Linux-based Tizen OS. Aimed at developers in Japan, the Systena tablet runs Tizen 2.1 on a quad-core, 1.4GHz Cortex-A9 system-on-chip, features a 10.1-inch (1920 x 1200) display, and offers 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

Is anyone here using Tizen? Is there even something you can run it on besides this tablet?

Qualcomm's dominance worries me far more than Samsung's.

There is a backdoor around Qualcomm's dominance and that's the tablet market where they're less powerful. Become defacto in tablets and OEMs will naturally flirt with the idea of having a single chipset across their product offerings.

Its risky and time is running out though as Qualcomm is entering tablet chips this generation with very compelling Snapdragons.
