A look at the Tizen UI from the Samsung Z

Samsung just made the Z official a few hours ago, and here at the Tizen Developer Conference I got a chance to play with the brand new UI that will ship with the first Tizen smartphone.

The UI is different from the reference Tizen UI that you might have seen before, and is also a departure from Samsung’s usual Touch Wiz interface. You have multiple homescreens, a pull down notification area, you can swipe up to get to all the other apps that don’t find a place on your homescreen, quick toggles in the notification center and so on.

There will be a Gear 2 Smartwatch giveaway the Tizen Dev. Conference

We’ve just had confirmation from the official Linux blog that the Tizen based Gear 2 smartwatch will be given to all attendees at the Tizen Developer Conference 2014. While we’ve seen Tizen come to consumer electronics in a camera before, the Gear 2 is Tizen’s first entry into the smartwatch segment.

We’re also counting down to the first (or two) Tizen smartphones, and the Tizen Dev. Conference that’s taking place in San Francisco from June 2-4, 2014 should shed even more light on how the OS is progressing. The schedule is already out, and the Conference is divided into a number of tracks such as wearables, ecosystem, TV, Application development and so on.

Registration costs $99, but you can get 50% off using the LFCOMTDC14 code. If that wasn’t already enough, a free Gear 2 smartwatch should be motivation enough. Oh, and there’s a free Intel NUC too.
