After Tizen 1.0 (codenamed Larkspur) release last week, a Samsung prototype was showcased at the Tizen Developer Conference on May 7-9 in San Francisco. The Samsung prototype fearures a 4.65 inch 1280 x 720p HD Super AMOLED display and runs Tizen on an Exyons? 1.2 Ghz dual core Cortex A9 chip with 1 GB of RAM.
Vaibhav Sharma of The Handheld Blog, who has tried this developers’ reference design at the conference, shows us the main menu (similar to TouchWiz), system settings, the web browser (which scores 408 on HTML5Test.com), the picture gallery, the music player, youtube video playback etc… and it looks pretty smooth as shown in the hands-on video below.
This is just a prototype, so performance will most likely be further improved once a Tizen smartphone is made available to the general public.

Where do i get the Samsung based tizen hardware
You’d need to ask Tizen.
You can try to follow the links at http://www.cnx-software.com/2012/06/20/tizen-launches-development-unit-program-for-developers/ to apply for development hardware. You can also run Tizen on the ST Ericsson Snowball board (http://www.igloocommunity.org/support/Tizen_on_Snowball) and some Samsung phones (Galaxy S2?)
