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. The SDK is supposed to...

I recently bought a WP7 phone to supplement my Android and was absolutely floored at how elegant, smooth, and powerful the WP7 OS is! That it runs so smoooooth on only a 1GHZ phone I bought is simply amazing! And on top of everything else, the OS is well designed and intuitive!

Samsung is lovable,BADA is never.MeeGo was lovable but Tizen looks same like BADA. Samsung should understand one thing that if BADA failed & MeeGo was loved by people then they shouldn't have replaced the UI to BADA UI. still keeping fingers crossed ;)

This is what people was waiting f'or. A new concept. MeeGO is gone and only samsung is the only one that con make this possible. Nokia has been wrong in EVERYTHING. And Samsing is about to be the king.

Now, I wish this will be installed on any phone Samsung make. I hope there will be two phones models one with Android an one for Tizen. And not make the same mistake of nokia.

Nokia pulled the pin on Meego because developers weren't reaching milestones on time. As any good project manager will telly you, this can lead to budget blow-outs and delays that ultimately do more harm than good. Look at RIM and their QNX platform if you're not convinced.

If you're looking for similarity of N9 Harmattan-Meego and Samsung Tizen....

be disappointed because it will not be the same.

launcher looks like iOS.

I guess it looks the same as Android without Nokia Maemo 6 in the Meego platform.
