First Tizen OS Tablet is a Quad-Core Powerhouse

The Tizen-based tablet announced this week by Japan-based Shisutena is the first formally announced Tizen device. The surprisingly powerful slate suggests not only that Tizen is about more than just Samsung smartphones, but that the mobile Linux OS is not afraid to go head to head with Android on the high end.

The unnamed Tizen device matches the specs of a high-end Android tablet, featuring a 1.4GHz, quad-core Cortex-A9 processor backed up with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of flash. The Shisutena tablet also features a 10.1-inch display with impressive 1920 x 1200 resolution. Other features include WiFi, a microSD slot, and both 2-megapixel and 0.3-megapixel cameras.
