You know about Tizen, right? That new initiative propelled by Intel and Samsung, with the chip maker contributing its Moblin/MeeGo experience and the Korean giant entering the partnership with its everything-but-popular Bada platform. While we still have to see the first Tizen-powered product released to the general public, we caught such a tablet in the wild. And guess what – similarly to the BlackBerry PlayBook, it too can run Android apps, which is something that should ensure users have some apps to play with from the day one.
That “day one” is still not that close and the fact that it can run existing apps doesn’t guarantee a thing. Just look at the PlayBook as an example – did that help RIM move enough units? Right. We’ll see whether Intel and Samsung can make Tizen a viable platform and in the meantime, here’s the clip of a Tizen tablet running Android apps. Enjoy!
