The operating system of phones doesn't matter any more. It is about what runs on it. It is just like the PC market and why Windows and OS-X are dominant. The OS is the easy part. Who's going to come up with the application store infrastructure? There needs to be a large company with a big financial stake in the continuing development of this OS. This is like a side project for Intel as a way to boost chip sales--not quite the incentive that Apple, Microsoft and Google (through advertising revenue) have. LiMo and MeeGo couldn't keep up before. What has changed?

Who is funding that one? Maybe we need IBM, Intel and others to back this up. Google needs a challenger.

One of the many nice "features" of Android is it is being backed by Google. Developers don't need to deal with apps and OS level IPs. How're the IPs being dealed with in Tizen and LiMo?

At IDF, Otellini said (speaking of MeeGo) there is still an industry desitre for another open mobile Linux ecosystem. Given the patent battles and uncertainty around Google/Motorola, and the need for the LiMo folks to have a roadmap, this makes sense. Still building a new Linux Mobile platform in 2012 is starting from waaaaay behind.
