Tizen powered ZTE Geek expected to be displayed at MWC next month
There have been so many rumors about Tizen in the last year, that it is almost impossible to keep track of them all. Tizen is coming. No, it's not. Tizen is DOA. No, it's coming soon. Now comes the latest speculation involving the open source OS. A published report from Greece reveals that Chinese manufacturer ZTE will have a Tizen powered handset on display at MWC next month.

The ZTE Geek, which was the first smartphone to feature the Tegra 4 under the hood, appeared at MWC 2013 with Android installed. Now, a year later, the handset is expected to make another appearance in Barcelona, but this time it will be running Tizen. The phone will be displayed at the Tizen Association booth. Apparently, there will be some type of app challenge going on there as well, which sounds like a challenge for developers interested in writing for the platform.

While MWC starts on February 24th, last month we passed along a report that mentioned a February 23rd Tizen-tinged event that will unveil Sammy's first Tizen handsets along with a historical recap of milestones achieved by the Tizen team. We also told you earlier this month that Samsung has no interest in bringing Tizen to the U.S. at this time.


Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!
