Android registered a slight year-on-year increase in marketshare, while Apple gained traction, driven by strong demand for new iPhone models. Microsoft, BlackBerry and Firefox drifted down, while Tizen posted tangible growth and overtook BlackBerry being the fourth largest OS platform for the first time ever.

Good news to see Tizen gain at least some traction - although admittedly taking over BlackBerry OS is like winning the 100 m sprint while your competitors are all asleep. In case you're not familiar with Tizen, this helpful video will explain... Wait what did I just watch?

In any event, I'm genuinely interested in getting a Tizen device once they hit Europe at a justifiable price point. Great addition to the collection.

I have a LG TV with WebOS. I've been looking into the SDK and it looks like coding is done in JavaScript. Sadly, all the HP WebOS SDK documentation is now offline :-(
