Samsung and its partners have been working on Tizen for what seems like ages. We’ve seen some early development hardware, and heard some ideas about how the first commercial devices might arrive. In fact, we might just be days away from getting news of the first wave of Tizen devices, with a big announcement expected for the Samsung Developers Conference in San Francisco, kicking-off this coming Sunday. While that might bring us some fresh Tizen news next week, we’re not going empty-handed today, and get to check out the first Tizen tablet.
The Systena Corporation may not be a name the tablet market is too familiar with, but that’s not stopping the company from releasing a Tizen tablet for developers in Japan.
As far as the hardware goes, this puppy sounds pretty decent: 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 display, quad-core 1.4GHz SoC, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB storage with microSD expansion.
We don’t yet know what it will cost, nor when it might ship, but keep in mind that as a developer device this probably isn’t one you’ll be wanting to pick up in the first place. On the other hand, it certainly might give us some hints at what to expect from more commercially-oriented Tizen tablets further down the road.
