6 Upcoming Mobile Operating Systems That Aren't iOS Or Android

Since we live in a rich digital era, you need to know a thing or two about mobile operating systems if you're new to consuming them. Google's Android, Apple's iOS, and Microsoft's Windows Phone are the biggest smartphone operating systems out there, but there are other OSes waiting for a place in your pocket. Let's take a look at some upcoming mobile operating systems:

 

Firefox OS

Mozilla is having a go at creating its own smartphone operating system. The Firefox OS is     based on the Firefox browser and the layout engine Gecko, while each app uses the core-of-the-web technology HTML5. What makes the mobile Firefox stand out? The fact that Mozilla wants to bring the entire web to the users' smartphones, without the need for mobile apps, because we all know that mobile apps are restricted to certain OSes and app stores.

Amazon's Fire OS

Amazon first created a mobile operating system for its Kindle Fire tablets and Fire TV products, and is now giving it a go on its Fire Phone. While the Amazon Fire OS is based on Android, it's not actually an Android version, but a fork of Android, meaning it's taking its own unique course. Fire's customized user interface offers its users fresh content in the form of apps, games, music, audio-books, and more, all exclusively available via Amazon's services.

Jolla Sailfish

Members of the MeeGo project team who were previously developing a Linux-based smartphone for Nokia, the Nokia N9, formed a company called Jolla. Jolla developed the Sailfish operating system by using the open-source bits of the MeeGo code and rewriting the closed source bits. The good news is, while Sailfish is a standard Linux, it has some compatibility with Android apps.

webOS

Palm’s webOS was initially developed in 2009, but it wasn't until HP purchased it in 2010 that the webOS platform was intended for use in smartphones. HP spent years selling tablets and PCs, but never forgot about the webOS. Finally in 2013, LG licenced the webOS for use in its LG Smart TVs, but not on smartphones, yet again. Given that webOS was dependent on web apps, and that some of its features find their place in modern OSes today in a similar version, it is believed that this mobile operating system could appear on an LG smartphone soon.

Tizen

This operating system is commonly associated with Samsung, but in fact, Tizen is under the “umbrella of the Linux Foundation,” according to howtogeek. Tizen has no apps and isn't compatible with Android apps, but Samsung is surely on Tizen's team. Samsung launched its Tizen-powered smartphone, the Samsung Z, and has pushed the platform on wearables like the Galaxy Gear smartwatches. Tizen has a long way to go in order to compete with Android, but it looks like it's here to stay.

Ubuntu Phone

Ubuntu's vision is to create an interface optimized for smartphones, tablets, desktop computers, and even TVs, all distributed by a single Ubuntu Linux platform. When on a smartphone, the interface is touch-optimized, and when on a PC, the interface is optimized for a big screen, a keyboard, and a mouse. So, if you're mounted on your Ubuntu phone, you automatically have access to your Linux desktop.
