Obsidian UI for Tizen is updated for the Intel powered Josephine reference device
Tizen had a pretty good time at MWC last month. Besides being called on to power the new Samsung Gear 2 and Samsung Gear 2 Neo smartwatches, the long awaited Tizen powered Samsung handset was also on display in Barcelona. Now, an updated version of Intel's Obsidian UI for Tizen has come to the surface on a reference device called Josephine.

The last time we got a glimpse of Obsidian, it was last June, and Josephine was supposed to make an appearance the next month. The UI, now seen with Tizen 2.1, features diamond shaped icons.

Will Tizen become a major smartphone OS? The Tizen Association is chock full of tech names that can help take the platform to the next level, but it is Samsung that has the ability to really get a retail presence for Tizen, not only with smartwatches, but also with smartphones


Thanks for the tip!
