Samsung has apparently started to send email invites to Tizen developers for a February 23rd event at the Arts Hotel in Barcelona. This pre-MWC event made the rumour rounds already
, and now it begins to shape up as official, though we are still waiting for media invites from Samsung to start flowing out, perhaps as soon as next week
The tech giant has apparently prepared not only Tizen devices, but lined up carriers to promote them, too, as Korea's major telecoms like SK, LG U+ and KT, are all said to be there, while we also heard that the Japanese NTT DoCoMo is in the mix
, too. Whether US or European carriers are also considering Tizen devices, remains to be seen. The invite reads:
Please join the Tizen Association Board on Sunday, 23 February 2014 for a welcome reception and kick-off to MWC 2014. Only during this event invite, you will get an exclusive sneak preview of the newest Tizen devices, as well as an opportunity to learn about the major milestones that the Tizen Project has hit since last year's event.
We ask you to reserve time from 3-6 PM CET on 23 February 2014 at Hotel Arts Barcelona, where you will also have the opportunity to hear from, and interview the Tizen Association Board members.
