On the Tech Hive website, a look into alternative operating systems for smartphones and tablets, from Ubuntu stand-alone version all the way to Mozilla OS, an entirely HTML5 driven system that handles every aspect of your phone. Above, a trailer demonstrating the functionality -- and smart UI thinking -- behind Ubuntu on a smartphone.
Today Android and iOS dominate the smartphone market, combining to provide the operating systems for more than 95 percent of smartphones. Still, not everyone is a fan of the Apple-Google mobile universe.
If youre wary of Androids security shortcomings, tired of iOSs overly aggressive auto-correct, or interested in tapping out of the Apple vs. Google mobile war, however, you'll be pleased to know that a number of new open-source mobile OSs are slated to debut in the next year or so.
From Canonicals Ubuntu to Firefox to Samsung, several big-name corporations and organizations will release their own open-source smartphone platforms this year.
