Tizen is the OS that Samsung and Intel have been working in recent months. Based on the code of MeeGo, Tizen is the big bet of Samsung to launch competitive smart mobile without relying on developers like Google or Microsoft.


Samsung has managed to become the leading manufacturer in the market of smartphones around the world. The company has seen several of its Android phones became the most popular in the world and its progression has been spectacular.


However, since Google bought the manufacturer Motorola, analysts and experts stressed that Samsung took precautions and develop its own system.


The South Korean company tried his luck with Bada, its own system, but does not seem to have had the desired success. For this reason, Samsung has partnered with Intel to take advantage of the work done with Meego – at its fruit of the Alliance of the manufacturer of processors with Nokia – and thus develop Tizen, an advanced system that can compete with the market leaders.


In this way, Tizen is destined to be an alternative to Android, iOS and Windows Phone. After months of work, the development of Tizen seems to be very advanced and the company already confirm that the first mobile will arrive this year.


According to Bloomberg, Samsung official sources have confirmed that the first Tizen sold this 2013. At the moment there is no data on devices, specifications or distribution plans. However, the fact that has been confirmed that the first Tizen are close invites to think that Samsung will present developed handsets at the Mobile World Congress. The fair of Barcelona could be the starting point of the Tizen catalogue, which will try to gain a foothold in the thriving market for ‘smartphones’.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

When Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note last year many were reactions but among them came an interesting reflection: this idea would work better on a tablet. In the Korean company have taken note of this and they have transferred the concept to a size where it makes more sense.
Technically it has no competitor right now in questions of power, but with clear failures of the resolution of your screen, where those 150 dpi are not understood in a tablet where image is as important. Especially serious it is if we take into account that we are talking about a tablet priced in the WiFi model and 16 GB is high, with 529 euros.
Best worked is in regards to applications. Meets very well contributed by Samsung, although they miss more applications for the S-Pen: thanks installation default Photoshop Touch and the facelift Polaris Office has received exclusively for this tablet (remember that it is an OEM app). Note S is a very complete application for taking notes and MultiView is an interesting addition which squeezes the processor and the RAM of the tablet but having ahead increase the ecosystem, a weak point of Android.
In relationship quality price, just those seeking a tool based on Android to draw and take notes (with the extra applications worked by Samsung) will find justified the price of this model of Samsung, which we must not forget that it will face a series of tablets with Android in a range of more attractive prices, the new Windows 8 RT to come and even affordable iPad Apple 2.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has been granted to the test by Samsung.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus


The popular Samsung Series 9 already have relay. And not one, but two variants of a new Ultrabook that have many points of interest. It is the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus and Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite. Models adopt the 13.3 inch screen diagonal, and while the Plus model becomes the true flagship happening Samsung Series 9, Lite, less capable performance variant, however has good points in his favor. One of the curiosities of these Ultrabooks is the inclusion of a new feature called HomeSync Lite, which allows to use the hard disk of these devices as a mini server to mount a private cloud. With this service we can safeguard personal files, photos and videos from our portable devices to our PCs, and then access them from the phone remotely.


The idea reinforces the strategy of Samsung go providing software services trying to add value on their hardware solutions. Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus this model comes with latest batch in all components, and in addition to offer Intel Core i5 and core i7 family Haswell integrates the impressive display with a resolution of 3,200 x 1,800 pixels that will be one of the hallmarks of the new portable Samsung hybrid models. New Intel processors are accompanied by the GPUs Intel HD Graphics 4400, in addition to up to 8 GB of RAM and an SSD drive that can reach the 256 GB. In terms of expansion ports, we have two USB 3.0 micro mini HDMI, VGA, RJ45 (with a dongle), SD slot, headphone and microphone. The touch screen has a protective layer Gorilla Glass, although it slightly increases the weight up to the 1.39 kg. This probably also contributes to the battery, which, according to Samsung officials, has an autonomy of 12 hours that given the efficiency of the micros Haswell very well could achieve. Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite in this model the differences are clear. Thus, we have an APU quad – core (probably from AMD, yet is not specified) at 1.4 GHz and a screen with a much more conventional 1.366 x 768 resolution pixels, as well as a battery with 8.5 hours. In addition we have 4 GB of RAM, and as in the Plus model, we can reach up to 256 GB SSD drives. The available ports are USB 3.0, a USB 2.0, micro HDMI, mini VGA, RJ45, headphone, microphone, and 3 in 1 card reader.


In the case of the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite can choose both the touch screen (which increases the weight 1.58 kg) as for the model with non-touch screen (1.44 kg). Availability and prices Samsung has indicated that both models will be available during the third quarter of the year, but it has not made more specific dates or not provided at the moment the price of these new Ultrabooks. As we have more information in this regard, we will update this information.
