Today we are excited to announce Tizen 1.0 Larkspur, including the addition of new complimentary components, as well as source code that focuses on enhancing stability and performance. We believe that these updates and new offerings improve the experience for developers. We are also continuing to work on improvements and additions, and we will be doing frequent updates to the SDK and source code. There are a few additional components that we plan to add in the coming weeks, and we will continue to fix bugs and add additional features.

After a half year of tumbling the end is clearly near, MeeGo is dead and Tizen is born. Bad news for MeeGo. Maybe the year 2011 will be go down in history as "the mobile device os dying". MeeGo and WebOS were both exciting pieces of software. Especially WebOS with its Mojo SDK was far more ahead. But when big players shows there teeth, something dies.
So lets start, again, from the scratch and write a new OS for mobile devices.
So whats Tizen all about?
Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform supported by leading mobile operators, device manufacturers, and silicon suppliers for multiple device categories, including smartphones, tablets, netbooks, in-vehicle infotainment devices, smart TVs, and more. Tizen will offer an innovative operating system, applications, and a user experience that consumers can take from device to device.
I will keep an eye on it .
