In my opinion only ubuntu has a small chance to enter the market but you never know what will happen. Even android started from scratch and so did all other OS's that are now here and others that have "died"(Symbian).

Good to see some competition to Android. For 'me' Android is the best for now, but, I may change to Firefox if it is less resource hungry and provides the same features

@mobilmaster: Tizen i have test it and it is horrible, laggy and icons. No applications and games. Very basic OS, could not fight with ios or android. Sailfish is an android device.

Firefox is much worse than IE now and can't even load ANY pages on the desktop, whereas other browsers load 'em in a blink! They just keep releasing updates with exotic gimmick names like Ionmonkey etc., but it still can't even load a simple webpage n is a real insult to primates!

Firefox OS?? What a disaster phone will be. The only alternative i view is Ubuntu OS as a future competitor, but for sure firefox NOT. ZTE keep trying.

A lot of new OSes comming this year. Im hopeful, but not really sure if any of them can make it in what's pretty much become a two horse race.
