Tizen OS Tablet for Developers Out

October 26, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Talk of Tizen had been around for a long time now. The Linux-based OS for mobile devices has already found support from major manufacturers such as Samsung and Intel.

We have all been waiting for the first phones or tablets that would come powered by Tizen. But then they haven’t yet arrived.

Hope has been kindled for developers and sadly not for customers as yet. The Japanese company is offering to developers in Japan with a few goals in tow.


Developers will now need to try out ready apps for the Tizen operating system. Systena, the company behind Tizen, is said to be offering it as a developer kit.

A tablet offered to developers in Japan running Tizen comes with a 10.1-inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, a 1.4 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.

On the connectivity front is 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0. Also thrown in are front and rear cameras, a microSD card slot. Systena is offering the slate in red or white colors.

The developer device will also offer access to the source code and documentation for writing apps.

We are now waiting to know when the Tizen tablet will roll out for the customer. Further, in the anvil is a smartphone running the OS.

Let’s wait.
