Just as the Smartphone world seemed to have settled into Apple and Google camps two new competitors have appeared on the horizon, Ubuntu for Android and Tizen Linux. These two new upstarts are vying for the space inside our smartphones.
Both have very recently released new impressive versions of their operating systems that promise to give your smartphone a new personality, and both will have handsets ready during Q4 2013.
Complete convergence from smartphone to supercomputer is a dream held by many operating system (OS) developers. Canonical, the overseers of Ubuntu Linux, also dream of one OS to rule all hardware, Ubuntu for Android is the first step towards this grand dream.
