The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, is usually where all the hottest technology earmarked for release in the first half of a new is showcased. This is usually after the nosy tech guys have had their/our adrenaline taken care of by CES earlier on. This year’s congress takes place from 24th to the 27th o February. That means we are likely to have so many devices showcased and announced before the congress kicks off and one of the devices expected to grace the stage in Barcelona are powered by an operating system that has been in the oven for so long now: Tizen.
Word is that new Tizen devices (not the prototypes you’ve always been seeing) will be released at MWC 2014. An email from Tizen backers Samsung and Intel seen by the folks at PC World highlights that at MWC there will be “an exclusive sneak preview of the newest Tizen devices as well as an opportunity to learn about the major milestones that the Tizen project has hit since last year’s event.” We all know very well what that means. Let us just hope that it happens. We are obviously not interested in seeing version 4.0 of Tizen launch before we have some devices in our hands. A MWC announcement most likely will be just that, an announcement. Expect nothing more immediately.
