Tizen Android App Compatibility OpenMobile ACL


Recommended Posts

One thing that every new OS struggles with is apps and the ecosystem of apps. To compete with Android and iOS, you have to bring in users so that developers will want to develop for the OS. These are the struggles with Tizen, webOS, and Firefox in the short term. In the long term, they could be viable alternatives.


One way to ensure users will convert would be to tap into the Android Market of apps. Not an easy task but OpenMobile promises to bring a compatibility layer to Tizen so the Android apps will run in the environment.




OpenMobile's Application Compatibility Layer (ACL)™ enables Android apps to run on non-Android operating systems, ACL for Tizen is coming soon!  With ACL, Tizen can be filled with a robust app ecosystem featuring hundreds of thousands of apps, no matter the device: smartphone, tablet, smart TV, in-vehicle infotainment, in-flight infotainment, etc. ACL will deliver a powerful app ecosystem on platforms never before possible.

      After a two-year hiatus, Europe’s biggest home appliances trade show is back and better than ever. IFA 2022 took place offline on September 2 in Berlin, Germany, where Samsung Electronics showcased its latest lineup in the Samsung Town exhibition hall. With various zones, such as the SmartThings Life Zone and Everyday Sustainability Zone, visitors could experience the latest products in visual display, home appliances, mobile and memory categories.
      Samsung Newsroom takes you to the scene of Samsung Town in this three-story series. In this first story, we’ll cover Samsung’s eco-conscious efforts for sustainable daily lives. In the second story, we’ll share the integrated connected experience enabled by SmartThings Home Life. In the third story, we’ll give you a tour of Samsung’s latest products in the exhibition hall — making you feel as if you are actually there.
      At its SmartThings Home booth, Samsung Electronics showcased its vision for the future of home living. The booth featured a setup of seven real home spaces, such as a bedroom, living room and kitchen, allowing visitors to experience and learn about the capabilities of SmartThings.
      SmartThings presents a fully integrated home experience by connecting not only Samsung products and services but also third-party devices such as lighting and window blinds to cater to your own lifestyle. SmartThings also helps consumers live a more sustainable life by suggesting ways users can save energy around the home by analyzing energy usage patterns and more.

      It’s typically a matter of when, not if, an upcoming smartphone will leak in full ahead of the official reveal. On Tuesday morning, press renders of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 leaked online. We had a good idea of what Samsung’s next-gen foldable phones would look like already, but now the final designs are floating around online.
      Galaxy Z Fold 4, Z Flip 4 press images leak
      First up is a rather blurry press render of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 from MySmartPrice. According to the site, the leaked image above comes from an industry insider. At a glance, the new phone looks virtually identical to its predecessor.
      Galaxy Z Flip 4 leaked press render. Image source: MySmartPrice On the left, we see an unfolded Galaxy Z Flip 4 with its 6.7-inch AMOLED display, with a USB-C charging port, speaker grille, and mic at the bottom.
      On the right side, we can see a number of folded Z Flips. The Z Flip 4 will reportedly come in lavender, cream, black, and blue colorways. The back of the Z Flip 4 will once again feature a dual camera setup, but rumors claim the new model is getting a 2.1-inch cover screen. That would be a touch larger than the 1.9-inch cover screen of the Z Flip 3.
      Finally, the report notes that the Z Flip 4 will feature a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, a 3,700mAh battery, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, a 12-megapixel primary camera and 12-megapixel ultrawide camera, and support for 25W fast charging.
      Higher-quality leaked images
      The same morning, Evan Blass (@evleaks) shared even higher-quality press images of both the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 on 91mobiles.
      In the Z Flip 4 press render from Blass, it’s easier to see the hole-punch selfie camera:

It’s hard to gather much from a shot of the phone when it’s unfolded, but Blass claims that the phone will be available in Phantom Black, Beige, and Gray Green. We can also make out the metal shell of the phone and the side-mounted power button with a fingerprint sensor:

Image source: 91mobiles/Evan Blass Previous rumors have suggested that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will feature a 7.6-inch main display, 6.2-inch cover screen, a triple rear camera setup (50MP+12MP+10MP), Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, 12GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of internal storage.
      In addition to a recent spate of leaks, Samsung has also seemingly confirmed the date of its next Galaxy Unpacked event. The company tweeted out this series of cryptic images on Monday hinting at the date of its next major product reveal:

      If you solve the puzzle, it offers up the following number: 081022. That would translate to August 10th, 2022, which just happens to be the date that Evan Blass shared on Twitter on Monday morning. We’ll finally see the new foldables on that date.

      Best Android tablet overall: Samsung Galaxy Tab S8
      Samsung Galaxy Tab S8
      The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 represents the very best that Android tablets can offer, with a premium build, powerful internals, and more.
      BGR may receive a commissionBGR may receive a commissionPros
      Fast charging Samsung DeX support A plethora of peripherals Cons
      Pricey Amazon$779.99Best Buy$699.99 Few Android tablets have managed to get close to the overall performance and functionality of Apple’s iPads. If you had to choose the closet option, though, the Galaxy Tab S8 series is one of the best. This Samsung-manufactured tablet combines standard features like fast charging combined with a beautiful 11 or 12.4-inch display, depending on which model you get.
      Perhaps the most intriguing thing about the Galaxy Tab S8, though, is the ease at which the device turns into a portable PC. This makes it easy to equip the tablet with various peripherals, including those that make use of Samsung DeX. The 2560 x 1600 display means clean and slick visuals, while a 120Hz refresh rate ensures smooth performance in games and applications.
      The biggest downside for the Tab S8 comes down to its price. It is considered expensive for an Android tablet, but you’re getting a lot for the price. That said, it’s also worth considering the even higher-end Galaxy Tab S8+ and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, if you’re truly looking for the best of the best. All three tablets offer the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which is Qualcomm’s highest-end chipset to date.
      Best Android tablet for students: Amazon Fire HD 10
      Amazon Fire HD 10
      If you’re looking for a solid tablet on a strict budget, then it’s worth considering the Amazon Fire HD 10, which offers a range of features at a pretty low price.
      BGR may receive a commissionBGR may receive a commissionPros
      Built-in Alexa support Productivity bundle turns it into a mini laptop Support for up to 1TB of external storage Cons
      Low RAM Not the highest-performing machine No Google Play Amazon$149.99$99.99 In 2011, Amazon launched the Kindle Fire, which would go on to birth a myriad of Amazon Fire tablets over the coming years. One of the latest offerings, the Amazon Fire HD 10 brings all the benefits of previous Amazon tablets to the table, with some added bonuses. If you’re looking for a solid Android tablet that gives you access to Alexa, then we highly recommend the Amazon Fire HD 10.
      This tablet also isn’t as expensive as some other options out there, and you can find a few different configurations available on Amazon when purchasing it. If you’re a student, then one of the best options out there is the Productivity bundle. This bundle combines the Amazon Fire HD 10 with Microsoft Office 365 and a detachable keyboard peripheral. It’s the perfect tablet-to-laptop combination, and it’s easy to switch between the two modes depending on what you need. Amazon also runs sales on the Fire tablets constantly, so you can usually find one for a discount if you wait long enough.
      The biggest downside with choosing an Amazon tablet over a more traditional Android tablet, though, is Google Play Store access. You can still sideload the Play Store on the tablet, but if you aren’t comfortable doing so, you may find yourself disappointed with the limited available apps on the Amazon App Store.

      Built-in parental controls Protective case Cons
      Features can be limiting for older kids Amazon$99.99$49.99 If you’re looking for an Android tablet that comes with great parental control options and doesn’t break the bank, then Amazon’s Fire 7 Kids Pro is a perfect fit.
      This tablet blends all the lovely features of Amazon’s other Fire tablets with a kid-friendly design. The tablet is surrounded by a protective case, which is perfect for kids to hold onto. You’ll also find a slew of built-in parental control options, which makes it easy to keep track of what your kids are doing on their tablets. You can also set up guards that keep your kids from talking with strangers on their tablets, and approve certain contacts they are allowed to speak to.
      The Amazon Fire 7 Kids Pro also comes with ready access to Amazon Kids+, a special feature-rich system designed to provide your kids with shows, books, and kid-friendly games they can play. Kids can read content from National Geographic, Rabbids Coding, LEGO, and more. It’s a great way to put interactive content in front of kids, and the Amazon Fire 7 Kids Pro won’t cost you a small fortune to get them set up with their first smart device.
      Best budget Android tablet: Amazon Fire HD 8
      Amazon Fire HD 8
      If you just want a solid Android tablet for media consumption and basic social media, then the Amazon Fire HD 8 is the way to go.
      BGR may receive a commissionBGR may receive a commissionPros
      Multiple bundle options Long battery life Cons
      No Google Play Amazon$89.99$49.99 If you need a good tablet that’s under $100 and offers a solid experience, then Amazon’s Fire HD 8 is a good choice. This tablet builds off the success of the company’s Fire 7, but adds more storage and overall power. You’ll find access to a ton of apps on the Amazon App Store, as well as easy access to Alexa and other Amazon-powered services.
      The only real downside here compared to other budget tablets out there is that Amazon’s version of Android doesn’t come with the Google Play Store installed by default. You can sideload the app, giving you access to more applications via the Play Store, but sideloading can be a bit technical for users who don’t know how to do it.
      You’ll find support for up to 12 hours of battery life on the Amazon Fire HD 8. The included 2GB of RAM, which should also be enough for basic tasks. It’s not as high of RAM as you’d see in the more expensive options on our list, but budget devices come with their own sacrifices. Like all of Amazon’s other tablets, the Fire HD 8 also comes with Amazon Kids, the company’s built-in parental controls. You can use it to control screen time, determine which apps can be installed, and more.
      If you want a solid tablet that isn’t going to break the bank, then the Amazon Fire HD 8 is one of the best budget offerings you’ll find out there.
      Best budget Android tablet with Google Play: Lenovo Tab P11+
      Lenovo Tab P11+
      If you prefer to stick with a budget tablet that has the Google Play Store on it, then the Lenovo Tab P11+ is the tablet to go for.

      Good-looking display Solid performance for the price Cons
      Cameras aren't great Amazon$279.99Best Buy$279.99 If you’re looking for a budget Android tablet that does come with the Google Play Store, then it’s worth considering the Lenovo Tab P11+. This tablet looks and feels premium, offers a solid set of features, and doesn’t break the bank.
      Under the hood, the Lenovo Tab P11+ comes with a MediaTek Helio G90T processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It’s not the fastest tablet out there, but it should be able to handle most basic tasks that users will throw at it.
      The tablet also comes with Android 11, and Lenovo says it will get an update to Android 12 — but you shouldn’t expect it to get anything beyond Android 12.
