People gifted with the blessing of wanting variety are mostly disappointed when it comes choosing a smartphone with a different Os other than Android Os or iOs. After all the aforementioned Os make up 99.6% of all smartphone Os. The rest is made up of Blackberry Os and Windows Phone OS. The arrival of a new Os is not about the money or the complexity, it’s actually a bit more tricky than it is impossible.
This domination is due to a closed circle of players, such as users, application developers, hardware (smartphone manufacturers) and Os developers. The circle starts with users using the applications on a hardware supported by the Os. In this there is an alliance between the hardware and Os developers as they try to streamline their operations, the relationship between application developers and users are based on supply and demand. Due to the alliance between hardware and OS, the applications have their limits and the user’s left to choose between the only the available ones.This chain is unbreakable to break or it may seem that way.
For a new player to jump in, the cost of a new competitive Os is least of the worries when compared with the complexity of the road ahead. They need thousands of new developers for the operating systems, partners for the hardware section, external developers for making applications and games to attract new customers. And in any ambitious enterprise, unforeseen exceptions can occur such as the competition suddenly upgrading their systems or a new hardware platform.
To be quite fair, the iOs and Android are very good operating systems in fact excellent. They offer lots of application and games, are an open source programs, they provide regular and good software updates time to time. They walk the perfect line between hardware and user experience. Apple has the users hooked on their great user experience and interactive iOs. Android provides a great platform for the online applications.
A new operating system lies in a new hardware platform, windows were dethroned in the smartphone platform. Whether it be wearables like watches or glasses or a whole or a whole approach such as virtual reality or augmented reality or cloud computing or modular phones. The most popular being the 2 in 1 devices such as the Asus Padfone X, where a phone could be used as a tablet too. Modular phones too could need a more battery-efficient operating system, all of this points to that a new operating system which will not be found in the existing spheres but in new electronic frontiers.
