In Pictures: The twisted tale of Tizen mobile OS

A new OS has been in development since the start of 2012

Tizen finds a home

In January, screenshots of a very early build of the Tizen OS running on a Samsung smartphone called the I9500 were leaked. On May 8, Samsung revealed a developer device, which appeared to be the I9500, running Tizen -- this phone has a 4.3-inch screen and reportedly ran on a dual-core ARM-based 1.2 GHz processor. On May 14, Samsung demonstrated Tizen at a news event -- this time on a Galaxy S II HD LTE. As of this writing, no company has announced when they will release a Tizen device.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
