In general, I agree the assessment that the mobile phone market is congested. Tablet market seems to be a viable market for MeeGo. Android is trying yet it couldn't stop the momentum of iPad. The chance of either one of the OS bridging into tablet market will likely rely on 6 factors. 1) Amount of apps and uniqueness of apps. 2) Hardware features. 3) Ease of product prototyping and development. 4) Overall performance including touchscreen responsiveness. 5) CPUs supported. 6) Human technology. There may be more factors such as form factor and such. However, the key is whether the OS can bring more than the competitor's OS to customer and how the features are delivered.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
