Tizen screenshots  leak, might debut on Samsung I9500 - read the full textWe really liked MeeGo, for as little as it lasted, but MeeGo is dead. Long live Tizen! Someone got their hands on the Tizen SDK and snapped several screenshots. Note that they are not from a real device but from an emulator. Still, it's a preview of what we can expect.

One thing i do not understand is why they keep on changing SDK's..
GTK, EFL, QT and now HTML 5 ..

All i want is one good linux phone in the market which if not excels, but stands a change in the market dominated by Android and iOS

Nokia Killed MeeGo but they didnt kill Harmatan UI.. That's going to be used in the future nokia OS for feature phones and probably in symbian too. That UI belongs to Nokia.. So if you liked Swipe you probably will like futuru nokia phones

oh well samsung will never learn. this will be a flop just like bada. why not keep with what u know. android a run away success. so lets make a new os. everyone slags of apple at least the whole series of handsets have the same os. unlike samsung every new phone out comes a new os. shame.

It's not going to suceed without an Apps Ecosystem like iOS or Android.

By the way Tizen should not look as Bada(if you ask me I don't really care, but I think the N9 has a better and cooler UI).

Its a breath of fresh air... Now this is a REAL open source. Most OEM will support Tizen.

Guys this is a Tizen OS the Samsung way... Let's check the other manufacturers.. Like Sony they can make Tizen smartphone with mediascape or HTC sense the Tizen way...

This is what I am waiting this year.... Hopefully Panasonic will manufacture a smartphone using Tizen OS.
