Tizen 1.0 Larkspur released out of beta, eagerly awaiting the first Tizen phone
 The collaboration between Samsung, Intel and a number of carriers on a new open-source mobile operating system called Tizen is finally out of beta and into the real world of 1.0 versions.

Rumor has it that Samsung GT-I9500, references to which we've seen on a few benchmark sites and UAPs, will be the first official Tizen phone, and with version 1 out of the gate, their might be some credibility to it all.

The SDK now sports browser-based simulator and the emulator has been sped up, while a number of new features have been added to the latest mobile OS, like richer HTML5 support, Wi-Fi Direct, and new route searching and POI options for location-aware applications.

not exactly a bad thing,the thing that worries me is support, but since its intel, im sure theres gonna be great hardware support for the intel chips that im sure they are gonna be using but then again thats obvious really wouldnt mind trying it out once support for it goes up and it comes out of beta, a good android competitor

I always welcome new OS' into the game and I want them all to do well. But this looks alot like Android.

I dont know if it looks so much "androidish" as it just looks like touchwiz

Icons look droidy, UI looks Belle-ish. Do we really need another tons-of-icons-on-a-picture-background looking kind of OS?

Doesn't look that bad, its always nice to try something new but can developers create a custom ROM to flash and be able to use it on some Android phones? Personally if thats possible I would rather use it on the Galaxy Nexus.

I don't get this. Why?

They already have Bada as an OS similar to Android with less apps. Why do they need another one?

If they want to create something new, they should have at least make it look new.

its to replace bada and have a well developed side project in case something crazy happens to android. say apple miraculously wins a big lawsuit and kills android.. unlikely by far but just for arguements sake... Samsung can immediately whip this OS onto phones and send it out.

anybody who use bada os phone (as I) knows that the bada is dead... also, at this moment, samsung support for bada users is equal to zero... I am sure that tizen os have exact future as bada os... it will drop dead within two years... thats why Im looking for new android phone and I will choose between One X and SIII... and X have an advantage only because crappy samsung support...

my sister is using wave 3 and so i was able to try it the os itself is quite snappy no prob. with any apps you like to try but the biggest gripe is that if you dont have any credit card to buy a good quality apps. though there are still few quality apps support is what lacks the bada and hopefully tizen will be able to boost their ecosystem faster.
