PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless European carriers are dissatisfied with the Nokia Lumia phones, Reuters has found out. According to the carriers, the Lumia phones are simply "not good enough" to compete with the iPhone and Android phones. Nobody comes into stores asking for windows phones, and one carrier executive said "if the Lumia with the same hardware came with Android in it and not Windows, it would be much easier to sell". Ouch.

Then you should pay attention to Tizen.

Almost mentioned it, definitely wish the team the best, and will be delighted to consider any phones that run it. I'm just not aware of any serious products in the pipeline yet, and fear their window of opportunity may have passed.

I hope I'm wrong.

Tizen will feature dull TouchWiz UI anyway. Their use of rasterman's masterpiece libs and wayland looks promissing. That's the ultimate linux gui stack if you ask me.

Yes, Tizen could have the most fluid GUI in the mobile market: efl are super-optimized (well, I donĀ“t know the HTML part).
