In Pictures: The twisted tale of Tizen mobile OS

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

Family feud

The development of Tizen has been affected by controversy over the way the MeeGo project ended. Several former MeeGo developers elected to not work on Tizen and created a spin-off, a technically proper continuation of the MeeGo code: Mer. A second point of contention has been over how “open” Tizen actually is. Developers need to be invited to contribute to project teams, and decisions made over the alpha version were said to have been closed to the public. The overall impressionsuggests that Tizen is more tightly controlled than a traditional open-source project.

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.
