We have had lots of talk of the ZTE Geek phone of late and our friend Yuya Adachi (Tizen Nerd) has successfully ported Tizen to the ZTE Geek v975 Smartphone, which is a device that has the latest Intel Atom Z2580 32nm processor running at 2.0Ghz under the hood.
This is great news as it opens up an existing device as a Tizen target. If you are interested in knowing how to port Tizen to your own device and can read Japanese, then please check out Tizen Nerd's Post.
Quick Specifications: Intel Atom Z2580 Processor, 5.0" display 1280x720, 8Gb storage and 1Gb RAM, 8MP Main Camera and 1MP FF and 2300mah battery.
We have reported that the ZTE Geek will be shown running Tizen at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona, 24th - 27th Feb, but the original information on the Tizen.Org website has disappeared, which just leaves us living in hope.
We will be bringing you lots more news about this soon, keep us bookmarked 😉
