Samsung: First Tizen device is a camera Samsung has finally confirmed what their first Tizen-based device will be, and surprised by saying it was already launched.
The NX300M camera is the first commercial product with the operating system, and it launched in October in Korea.

Samsung executive VP Jong-Deok Choi showed off the camera, which runs on the Tizen Camera Platform, with the OS at its core. The device has 200 percent faster booting speed compared to other Linux-based cameras, says Choi, and improved capture performance of 9 shots per second at a 20MP resolution.

The first Tizen smartphones, however, have been pushed again, this time until the Q1 2014. This marks the third time Samsung has pushed back the operating system's smartphone launch. The device, whatever it is, will run on Tizen 2.2.1, as Samsung works on Tizen 3.0 for the Q3 2014.

Tizen 3.0 will bring multi-user accounts, 64bit architecture for Intel, ARM chips and 3D rendering.
