+ - Samsung releases source code of Tizen Phone Z1->

rzr writes: Last month Samsung launched Tizen Z1 mobile for Indian market and some of them managed to be in developers hands (or the opposite). Anyway we all knew it ships mostly FLOSS to start with the kernel Linux, so Samsung made it available to anyone.

If you want to study tizen 2.3 mobile profile or even try to port OS to other devices (ie: previous tizen references devices) you have no excuse to not doing so.

Also author shared some pratical informations about making apps for the only "GNU/Linux inspired " system for mobile. At least with devices and support from the industry .. am I right ? I wish not... but still community depends on actual devices.
