Filed under
Linux

This morning there have been images flying around the web about a Samsung Z3 Smartphone running Tizen 3.0. Well, we don’t think so. The image shows the Tizen Store being accessed by a device, but the Z3 hasn’t been given Tizen Store access permission yet, and this handset with this firmware would not get in. Also Tizen 3.0 on a Smartphone has a long way to get released as it is still under heavy development, so yet again, we don’t think so.

I’ve dogfooded Firefox OS since its early beginnings and have some of the early hardware (hamachi, unagi, One Touch Fire, ZTE Open, Geeksphone Keon, Flame and ZTE Open C). It was good to hear some of the plans for Firefox OS 2.5 that were discussed at Whistler, but I wanted to take the time and model of this post and remix it for Firefox OS.
