Tizen 2.0 has now had some enhanced support injected into it, with HTML5 getting some amplification, as well as better Web UI framework that provides full-screen and multi-window features. Developers can now use the new hardware APIs for Bluetooth and NFC support, as well as access a device's call history, calendar and messaging "subsystems".

 

The updated OS now includes support for background applications, text-to-speech and IP Push, as well as reference applications including calendar, gallery and a phone app. Native IDE and an improved web development environment have been included with the latest code. More information is available here.
