Samsung's Tizen powered phone unveiled at MWC event
Today's announcement increases the number of different versions of Tizen to four. Besides the new television and wearables builds of Tizen, there had been the version used for smartphones and one used for vehicle information and entertainment systems.
Besides making the announcement, at today's Tizen Association event at MWC, Samsung's long awaited Tizen powered handset was revealed. Oft-delayed, and at one point nearly left for dead on the side of the mobile device highway, the phone is now on display in Barcelona. Check it out by viewing the slideshow below.

They should have just kept it under wraps until it was finished. Now that they have shown us their "new" OS every 20 minutes, I really have lost even the slightest interest in it and its ever so slow development. If they just threw it at us when it was done at least it would be exciting and somewhat new.

True, lol I don't think changing the name from Bada to Tizen is going to help them.

Is android really 'open' at this point? Meh, not so muchhttp://www.cmdshft.com/android-is-no-longer-an-open-source-project

Same old story;
Android AOSP is open source project
Google Apps is not from the very beginning.

Same story though, I would not consider an Android phone useful for anything as a smartphone if it has no access to google services.

Tell that to Amazon, Kindle Fire. Millions of Chinese branded Android that only has their local Apps store.
Google services is useful to me too! But its not open source from day one and I have yet to see a service being place under the open source model.
