Tizen powered ZTE Geek expected to be displayed 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.
