One of the Japanese companies called Systena announced the first Tizen-based tablet which is apparently the first Tizen product of any kind. The Tizen based operating system is basically a Web Kit runtime running on Linux Kernel and was build up with some important players like Intel, samsung and Linux foundation. Samsung has the license to the source developer kit (SDK) of Tizen 2.0. The device runs Tizen 2.0 Mangnolia operating system but is expected to get Tizen 2.1 at the time of launch for consumers.
This tablet offers high-end features including a 1.4GHz, quad core Cortex A9 system on chip, 2 GB of RAM, 32GB of flash and a 10.1 inch (1920 x 1200 pixels) display. With its outstanding specs we can definitely compare it with the most powerful android tablets currently available in the market. Additional features include Wi-Fi, a microSD slot, a 2 megapixel rear facing camera and 0.3 megapixel front camera.
While the tablet market is currently over flowing with Android and iOS and that Windows based operating systems going down in numbers, we could really see Tizen take off if its launch is a hit.
Likewise a lot of fresh new innovations are being awaited for tablets this year with the Ubuntu being currently worked on for tablets and Smartphone’s, besides Mozilla developing their Firefox Os as a competent to Android. With this all coming around, it could be a very enthusiastic year for fresh tablet innovations.
