"Contrary to the negative comments to the Tizen by the most in this blog, I'd predict that Tizen will become dominant in mobile devices..." maxmin Well, I disagree. In fact, LIMO already tried to create this 'open' phone OS that you say everyone wants, even before Android came out. And the LIMO proponents were very vocal about how Android was going to fail because it isn't truely open. So your forecast has already been proven wrong.

I am not sure Android will be what it used to be after Google's purchase of Motorola Mobility.

@yalanland I am no phone OS expert but I get the impression that, nicely formed as Symbian might be, it was architectured in an earlier era and optimized for less graphical displays (not 3-D for instance), less memory, lower performance processors, lower bandwidth and a simpler, radio environment. So the market is looking for alternatives that provide headroom it turns of a rich mobile environment that can easily accommodate the latest developments like app stores, sharing data with consumer equipment, and high-security for rights management and wave-and-pay.

@peter if market was always looking for alternatives then I wonder why did it kill symbian ? Was it such a bad OS ?

@maxmin I totally agree with you that tizen will become dominant in mobile devices in 1-2 years. I think Tizen will get good support from Intel,Samsung, HTC. Needs to be seen what strategies will Google adopt to counter Tizen growth.

Just curious to know if android apps will be able to run on Linux because both of them are open source? If android apps are compatible to Tizen then I think Tizen can give good competition to Android.

You are right IBM, Intel may be the major investors. Along with them I guess Samsung and HTC will actively invest in this because they dont want to depend on Anroid which is owned by Google.

It's the dominance of the App Store that's the problem. Google gets a cut of every application, while the poor phone manufacturer becomes a commodity conduit for Google.

Maxmin, just wondering if you are able to share more insight that you have not disclosed yet. What gives you that optimism regarding a new OS challenger to crowded biosphere that may not have enough market volume to sustain all these choices and volumes required for a profit.

I don't get it. Wasn't it not that long ago that everyone was all GO Android GO! trying to beat the evil WinCE, Palm and IOS establishment? Now it seems Android has mostly delivered on it promises to 'liberate' the common end user from proprietary OS prison, and now here's everyone talking about yet another mobile OS wanna-be? Give it a rest. Android won, game over.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
