Tizen is not dead yet, and in fact, the recently talked about Tizen App Challenge has put up a $4 million bounty for developers who have been given the responsibility to “redefine the mobile experience”. Well, one would say that in a highly competitive arena like the mobile operating system one, to make an appearance without putting any effort at all to do something different like “redefining” the mobile experience would be pretty much suicidal and doomed to fail right from the get go. Let us keep our fingers crossed that this $4 million bounty could be a nudge in the right direction, as we see more glimmers of hope in a video of this Tizen-powered tablet prototype above.
The video does depict what seems to be an extremely early experimental version of Tizen 2.0, which also carries the beautiful nickname Magnolia. It is said that this particular device is set for a rollout at the Smartphone & Mobile Expo which will happen at the end of this October, but unfortunately for the masses, only the developers will be able to get their hands on this Tizen tablet prototype. Some hardware specifications of this upcoming tablet include a 10.1” WUXGA display, 2GB RAM, a 1.4GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor, 32GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi connectivity, dual cameras and a microSD memory card slot.
