Fujitsu and NEC to launch Tizen phones next year

Samsung may be the first to launch a Tizen-based smartphone later this year, but it won’t be the only one with such a device, with Fujitsu and NEC working on their units which should hit the market at some point in 2014.

It is likely that the two Japanese handset makers will initially unveil phones in their own backyard where customers will be able to grab them from NTT DoCoMo, one of the companies that have a seat at Tizen Association’s Board of Directors. Other companies with a representative on the board include Samsung, Intel, Huawei, Panasonic, Vodafone, Orange, Sprint, SK Telecom and KT.

As I’m writing this we don’t have a single image of a Tizen device to show you, but you can see how Tizen menus will look like from the screenshot above. Hopefully, additional information will be released shortly when we’ll get back to you with everything we’ve got. Stay tuned in the meantime…

    Yeah, we could use another platform. Though I would pick Ubuntu, BlackBerry or Windows Phone over Tizen…
