HTC Tizen device in the works for 2012

There's a new bit of Samsung / Intel software in the house called Tizen made for the mobile market, and this week we're hearing that HTC is one of several hot off the blocks to release a smartphone with the system embedded. This news comes after Samsung showed off a very early version of some hardware running the first Tizen for a developer conference that took place the same week as this spring's CTIA 2012. With both Samsung and HTC on lock for a device with this software onboard, we're looking for what'll very possibly be a large release - relatively speaking, of course.

Samsung Tizen dev device caught on camera

Various Tizen smartphone developer devices, believed to be made by Samsung, have been brought out to play at the Tizen Developer Conference this week, giving us a glimpse of v1.0 Larkspur in action. The 720p HD handset runs a 1.2GHz dual-core ARM chipset, according to Tizen Talk, though neither developers nor Samsung is saying too much about specifications as this isn't a phone that will end up in users' hands.

MeeGo may have bitten the dust, but from the ashes rose Tizen, the open source OS backed by players like Intel and Samsung. News surrounding Tizen has been somewhat quiet as of late, but here’s a pretty big milestone: the OS has just hit version 1.0, codenamed Larkspur.

Tizen UI leaks ahead of Samsung I9500 debut

Open-source smartphone OS Tizen rose like a scorched pigeon from the ashes of MeeGo last September, but its taken until now for the first screenshots of the platform to emerge. A cluster of shots were shared with SamMobile, showing a UI that's markedly similar to pre-ICS Android and even Samsung's bada. That may be no coincidence, however, since Samsung is one of the leads in the Tizen project, and may be bringing the first Tizen-based device, the Samsung I9500, to market imminently.

Acer and ASUS opt into Tizen; HTC ponders say sources

Tizen, the platform that gobbled up MeeGo, may only be a few days old but already it's reportedly gaining support from new companies including ASUS and Acer. The firms are each apparently set to add Tizen development to their engineer's workload, DigiTimes' sources claim, with HTC said to be "currently evaluating its decision." The shift in OS focus will mean that ASUS and Acer's existing MeeGo device plans are put on ice, it's suggested.
