Lack of support from carriers could doom Samsung’s Android killer

Samsung probably won’t ditch Android anytime soon but the company has nonetheless developed an alternative platform called Tizen for use in tablets and smartphones. Per Engadget, we now have an idea of what Tizen will look like in tablet form as Tizen build kit developer Systena has released a Tizen-based developer tablet that includes a 10.1 inch display with a resolution of a 1,920 x 1,200  pixels, a quad-core 1.4 GHz ARM processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The developer kit is only being sold in Japan for now and Engadget says that Systena still hasn’t released any pricing information yet so it’s doubtful that you’ll see the neighborhood kids using it anytime soon.
