Tizen demo

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Really interesting Tizen demo – the joint operating system developed by Samsung and Intel; which has some parts of MeeGo in there. Even allowing for the fact that this is a pre-release developer version, I found the user experience a bit disappointing compared to the BlackBerry 10 demonstrations and the bar set by the iPhone, but this may change even further before the public gets to use Tizen in anger.

In terms of Samsung’s relationship with Android , this provides Samsung with a whip-hand against Google and a fallback position against Microsoft’s patent licensing programme for Android manufacturers. The Tizen demo is on YouTube so may not be available to all viewers. More technology related content here. More on Tizen here.
