Samsung-Tizen

Seoul: As we are just about to enter the New Year, South Korean technological giant Samsung is now eyeing to introduce its new Tizen devices at MWC.

According to press invites for a pre-Mobile World Congress 2014 gathering, Team Tizen wants the world to check out the next wave of devices running the open-source operating system.

Smartphones were’t mentioned specifically in the invitations, instead promising the February 23, 2014 event offering “an exclusive sneak preview of the newest Tizen devices as well as an opportunity to learn about the major milestones that the Tizen project has hit since last year’s event.”

Phones running Tizen were supposed to arrive in 2013 – and a spec device running the OS was shown at MWC 2013 – but with the year almost up and Tizen where in sight, we’ll put our money on an MWC ’14 appearance.

Tizen is backed by Samsung and Intel, among others, and we’ve seen it on a number of gadgets already, including cameras and leaked smartphones.

However, the first commercially ready Tizen smartphones were given a rescheduled release date of sometime in 2014, and MWC 2014 seems an appropriate enough venue for the unveiling.

We’ll be covering the Barcelona show from the ground, so stay tuned for Tizen news and hands on reviews of any hardware Tizen deigns ready.
