poll next wave of OS

But following the huge success of Android, mostly due to its ability to offer low cost smartphones there are emergence of new mobile platforms. Some of them are modified from earlier ones, and some came to tap the mobile opportunity. Mozilla’s HTML5 based FirefoxOS (originally Boot2Gecko), Canonical backed Ubuntu’s mobile version and Samsung’s Tizen are seemed to be next gen mobile platforms which can give trouble to older platforms. None of them has commercial big bang but all of them are very confident to be a success.

For rolling out FirefoxOS, Mozilla partnered several handset manufacturers and operators to offer FirefoxOS running smartphones. Mozilla even targets its market – South America first, then Asia, Europe and Africa. Ubuntu has another edge, it has its own fan followers and quite popular on desktop or laptop market. In its first run as Ubuntu on Android, it showed some exciting features. In February ’13 Ubuntu phone was announced.

Samsung moved to Tizen from home-grown BadaOS as it is looking for alternative to Android. WebOS with quite good ecosystem is inactive these days under the hood of HP, but it is sold to another party, it may show its fortune. Nokia-ditched MeeGo got its new home and reshaped as Jolla.

So there are several mobile platforms are emerging. There is chance that our Reliance Jio Infocomm may not totally depend on Android and look for these alternative operating systems.

    I would put my money on Jolla’s Salifish OS, considering all others are backed by BIG banners and this is the one born out of the Spirit of the Engineers of Meego. Ubuntu got followers, Tizen got Samsung and Intel, Firefox got Mozilla, yet Jolla is the one which came just from a group of engineers who refused to give up on their effort and is in consideration for the next big OS in the mobile world. I may not win nor those who put money on it but I firmly believe that Jolla’s Sailfish, if at all it dies, will still be remembered for some unique innovations which neither the Cupertino toy has given nor the Green bot could ever deliver.

      +1 bro.
      now I’m planning to buy Windows os phone.
      but I love jolla efforts to bring awesome piece of os from meego, I saw their os I just love the sail fish.
      I believe that the former engineers from Nokia will gift the rock hardware as well awesome software with better UI & best security + lovely design.
      they know what people’s need is n why thay love nokia since thay had the experience in nokia corp.
      Me too definitely put my money on JOLLA SAILFISH……
      i’m fed up with Android,,,, it have just apps nothing more… worst security…
      Sammy’s crap hardware…

    Ubuntu …..as Android is originally based on linux …..

    Android will remain as top performer for another few years, IOS will go down n windows phone will hold 2nd spot in coming years, wp is already in 2nd position in india with 5.5%.
    Ubantu’s OS is very cool but looks androidish. Infact all the OSs except wp look androidish n they come with minor changes.

    I think that Samsung is going to do something big because it is also working on foldable phones and now it’s OS…..in every market samsung is going to rule over the world coz samsung has the best IT faculties….my best wishes are with samsung and one more think i want to mention that large numbers of OS will flood our market and customer will be confused to choose which of the platform to satistfy their needs.
