I gave you 2 reasons but you seem to be deaf.

Regarding Google's monopoly: “We don’t like the fact that one part of the value chain of our business is tightly controlled,” Carlos Domingo, director of product development at Telefonica’s digital unit, said in an interview. “In the case of the emerging countries it’s worse, because it becomes a monopoly by Google.” http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-07-04/telefonica-bids-to-own-the...
Some companies are not blind, luckily.

No you did not, because none of those reasons is a business reason why a company will pick Tizen over any other Linux distribution.

The same goes to the consumers, everyone will pick phones based on design or what they can share with their friends, not based in ideologies.

What Telefonica fears is becoming a pipe company without control over their customers.

In most European countries people buy their phones free from the operator, so it doesn't matter what the operator thinks. We love our operator freedom and won't give up our pre-pay.

In the long run they will become information pipes.

Nice digression. Google's monopoly was the subject iirc. Anyway, this is my last post. Have a nice day.
