Samsung's first ever Tizen has been close to launching for months, it was expected in November when Samsung explained itself as to why the company has taken so long to release the device."We started late, but we are very focused. We are not shooting in the wild. This is a game that has to be led by the device manufacturer and not the pipe (telecom operators)," said Tarun Malik, Samsung's director of media solutions center, South West Asia. There was then several reports last week that suggested that the Tizen smartphone with the SM-Z130H would actually launch on December 10. If you have not checked today the date is December 11 and the Tizen smartphone did not arrive... again. The handset was scheduled for India, so what has happened this time? New rumors today say that the exact date for the release of the Galaxy Z1 has been put back and there is now no definitive date for the handset. According to Tizen Experts Samsung has sent $1.7 million worth of components for the smartphone to be built in India, which means the device is close to being released in the country. It sounds as though it will have to be assembled first though, so it is interesting to see how long Samsung will wait before launching the handset that will pack the company's own smartphone operating system. The SM-Z130 (Galaxy Z1) will apparently have a 480p screen a 1.2GHz Spreadtrum chipset, 512MB of RAM, a 3.2 megapixel rear snapper, dual-SIM, and a price tag south of $100. source: Tizen Experts
