Samsung has introduced its first smartphone built around the Tizen operating system, with a TV running the OS planned for next year. Featuring a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display and a 2.3 GHz Quad-core application processor, the Samsung Z, described by the South Korean company as the first commercially available Tizen smartphone, will run Tizen 2.2.1.

Samsung said additional applications for the device can be accessed through the Tizen Store at the launch of the Samsung Z, with plans for an apps contest in Russia and CIS countries and a one-year promotional program for developers.

Tizen apps are created using HTML5, potentially opening up the platform to a wide range of web and interactive designers and developers.

Samsung plans to release in July the software development kit for its Tizen TV, ahead of launching the TVs.

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
