[Video] Samsung Z1 launching with Android Apps thanks to Open Mobile’s ACL Technology

Yesterday we did an article that the Samsung Z1 would have applications such as WhatsApp released and ready to Install at launch. Talking about launch dates, it looks like to could be tomorrow !!!. Well today we have some more details. It was in-fact an Android application that was installed using Open Mobile’s ACL Technology, which has tens of thousands of Android Apps as part of its catalogue.
Having thousands of Android applications at launch will certainly help attract users to the Tizen Smartphone platform whilst native and HTML5 Tizen apps are being developed. There is a video at the end that shows you the performance that is achieved using this solution, and you can’t tell the difference between running the same App on an Android phone compared to a Tizen phone. There is a little hit on battery but overall a Tizen device will out perform a similarly powered Android device in terms of performance and battery. Period.

Initial Installation Instructions

  • Go to the Tizen Store
  • Find and Install WhatsApp
  • Sign in with your Samsung Account
  • Download the ACL App via the popup

You will only need to Sign in to your Samsung account and also Install Open Mobile’s ACL Technology app once, subsequent Android application installations are done with one click. Check out the video below to see it in action.
