First Tizen tablet looking mighty, is aimed at developers
Speaking of things going according to plan, we noted back then that the Tizen-powered tab is headed for Japan's Smartphone & Mobile Expo, which took place, surprise-surprise, yesterday, and is still going strong today. The unnamed Systena tablet runs on Tizen 2.1, and is specifically built to cater to developers that are intending or at least considering to build for the new OS. That's crucial, as you may have come to realize, since a platform, no matter its functionality and level of sophistication, simply won't make it unless it can offer a rich app ecosystem.
Anyway, turning to the hardware at hand, the tab is actually quite an offering in its own right – it packs a 10.1-inch WUXGA display (1920x1200), which is powered by a unspecified 1.4GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 based chipset and 2GB of RAM. No pricing details have been given for this admittedly good-looking tablet.

I thought Samsung will release Tizen-based devices this Q4 of 2013

I was wondering what the writer meant when he said "..this admittedly good-looking tablet."
Not ugly, but not different.

Is this going to be the $100 tab from a "reputed" manufacturer that Intel CEO keeps talking of?

Samsung has a version of Tizen similar to Touch-wiz and that really looks like Android!

People are going to hate so bad. Let the "There only needs to be iOS and Android" comments begin. I won't by this but competition is good. Just name it Galaxy anything they got a winner on their hands.
