Intel "Intel is planning its own UI overlay, codenamed 'Obsidian', that it will bring to the mobile operating system Tizen and possibly Android. A source working at Intel has tipped Ars with several early screenshots and some video of Intel's Obsidian project, which includes a handful of unique UI touches."

Intel is not going to sell phones btw, so its probably a prototype UI for Android/Tizen.

It is a foundation for everyone that builds applications on top of it.

Ever heard of OS UI design guidelines and UI APIs?
