Tizen holds the promise on shipping on lots of different devices. Samsung has already been shipping the Samsung NX-300M Camera for the last month or so but Today at the Tizen Developer Summit, Samsung has officially announced that this camera is actually running Tizen!

So, Tizen is now shipping... On a camera. On a related note, Samsung has let out some details of Tizen 3.0, planned for next year. It's going 64bit, will gain multiuser support, and will switch from X to Wayland.

Android UI is only hardware accelerated starting with version 3.0.

Exactly, meaning that the N9 got better performance just because it was running X

Android being slow doesn't necessarily mean N9 with Meego was super smooth either.

I've used an N9 and it certainly slowed down at times. Miles ahead of Android at the time but it wasn't really a high bar either.
