PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Samsung, the world's largest seller of mobile phones, said it will start selling smartphones this year featuring the Tizen operating system backed by Intel. 'We plan to release new, competitive Tizen devices within this year and will keep expanding the lineup depending on market conditions', Suwon, South Korea-based Samsung said in an e-mailed statement today. The company didn't elaborate on model specifications, prices or timeframe for their debut." The odds for Ubuntu on phones just got worse. Great news for competition, though.

Jolla/Sailfish will probably be first, then Tizen and then Ubuntu? Sounds like 2013 will be a breakthrough for mobile Linux. I wouldn't call it "worse" - on the contrary. It should increase a list of Linux friendly devices.

Based on my experience in the telecommunications industry I am very septic any of these OS will win enough traction.
