Ah, the Tizen OS. Much has been said about it, that sometime in the middle of this summer, it was reported that the mobile operating system was “almost dead”. Well, there were still some life signs left as Tizen 3.0 was spotted to run on a Samsung Galaxy S3 a couple of months after that. All in all, a simple conclusion can be made – that devices which run on Tizen are pretty difficult to come across, it is sort of going round and round trying to snag that legendary Pokemon.
Well, developers who happen to have a heart for the platform over in Japan will have an additional option, thanks to the Tizen build kit that hails from the good people over at Systena. This happens to be a package which will include developer tools, manuals and technical and consulting services, all of them from Systena. Of course, those are essentials, but the main attraction of the kit would be the 10.1-inch developer tablet.
This particular tablet would run on a quad-core 1.4GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, where it is accompanied by 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory. Coupled with that would be a 1,920 x 1,200 display, delivering a Tizen 2.1 experience that was specially built for app development and product demonstration. No public pricing details are available just yet, but those who are interested developers can place a request additional information via the company’s website.
