Coming soon: Open source operating systems for smartphones and tablets | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

Built entirely using HTML5 and other open Web standards, Firefox OS is a Linux-based open source operating system for smartphones and tablet computers. It has been demonstrated on Android smartphones and the Raspberry Pi.

 

Samsung and Intel are cooperating on the development of Tizen, another open source phone project situated within the Linux Foundation. The first embodyment of the system in phones will be Bada.

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, March 5, 2013 11:57 AM

Phones are in software walled gardens.

 

Most providers have proprietary operating systems for their phones and even Google's Android is not as open as some would like. 

Linux-based Firefox OS and Tizen/Bada to the rescue.
