No, we don't really need another smartphone OS

comments Would you ever consider buying a smartphone Ubuntu, Tizen, Firefox or operating system? For most of you, the answer is and will probably remain: no.
Why do you want? Android and iOS fight for world domination, with no sign of slowing down. Both have very well-developed ecosystems that make the sharing of information between departments and even beyond individual handsets quite simple, unified process. App development is strong, and OS updates are regular enough to give phone owners new tricks left to show.
At the same time, Microsoft is always reaches deep into his pockets to secure market share in double digits, and RIM hopes its upcoming BlackBerry OS 10 Hail Mary will regain its former stronghold fan.This hardly seems the time to welcome beginners.
Why, then, with four competing operating systems for your attention would be given a serious thought to a platform orchestrated by the manufacturers of a browser (Firefox), a giant of material that has a record of software questionable track (Tizen Samsung), and a Linux operating system that has not yet disappeared from mainstream desktops, despite years of effort?
The myth of choiceA four-horse race is not fun, you say, and always with BlackBerry on the brink, the three new hopes OS provide some welcome variation iOS, Android and Windows Phone. In addition, customers still like the choice, right?
In theory, yes, but just try to remember 2009, when six major mobile operating systems vied for users, BlackBerry, Symbian, Windows Mobile, Palm WebOS, iPhone and Android. There was competition, lots of it, but also the complexity, customer support, uneven availability combined limited and delayed growth and development OS app.
A year later, Microsoft Windows Phone OS and Palm WebOS is wrinkled, and the development of RIM BlackBerry OS stuttered. Nokia supports Symbian still technically but has thrown its weight behind Microsoft restarted Windows Phone.
Consolidated the mobile landscape for a number of reasons, one being that not enough customers each supported operating system to maintain its well-funded development. For one of these managed to succeed in the unforgiving climate of today, it takes money, some material extremely competitive, and a truly new function or approach.Of the three, Firefox and Ubuntu have the deepest pools of dedicated developers and Samsung has the money and muscle to force his vision on a combination of high technology. However, there is no real material intended for one of the three until the end of 2013 or 2014.
Factor AppsI'm not trying to argue that the status quo is and will remain strong enough to exclude disruptive. In fact, the iPhone and Android are both very successful in disrupting the pre-2007 mobile space.
Both iOS and Android offers a new paradigm - an intuitive navigation for iOS and Android Opening - supported by massive corporations with cavernous pockets and hardware partnerships solid as a rock.
With the exception of Samsung, I do not see Ubuntu Firefox or able to support such a spectacular growth.
Opportunity yet?Just because I do not think the current landscape support platform smartphone fifth or sixth does not mean that one of these three will not reach the popularity of niche.
Linux loving snipers and developers followed Ubuntu OS and Firefox with enthusiasm, and these two could become a fertile ground for an interesting experiment in an open environment before features or designs range in general.
There are also great sales opportunity in developing countries where many people convert from simple phones to smartphones. Experts estimate that 1.7 billion smartphones sold in 2012, with numbers increasing every year as deepening the penetration of smartphones in the market yet mature.Inexpensive hardware paired with a simple open-source software could attract new users OS smartphones unknown brands - but compared with Apple and Google's influence, a breakthrough would be minimal when taken on a global scale.
"The Web is the platform 'One thing we can glean from Tizen, Ubuntu, Firefox and the emphasis is on flexibility of open-source code, and use HTML5 web standards. Each is based on web protocols that makes cutting equipment and property code to store all data in the cloud, even offline.
If there is a chance for a breakthrough OS the forefront how iOS and Android has both RIM and Windows Phone will be first to fail and wither as WebOS. We'll see how they do it soon enough.
Until then, the front-runners have the resources to fight against the up-and-comers, and any additional participant OS would just add a lot of white noise.
