Tizen Architecture Overview

This presentation provides an overview of Tizen architecture and its core subsystems for the mobile platforms like handsets and tablets. The emphasis for Tizen architecture is WebAPI to ensure applications work across different architectures and different profiles. We will highlight what to expect in the source code for Tizen. We will provide our thinking on IVI and where Tizen would be going forward.
