[Ed – With Ubuntu for tablets and phones and now Firefox OS it looks like Apple and Google are going to get some solid competition in the phone arena. Of course there will not be a major impact to them for a couple of years (as many as three), but just as we saw when Android hit the market people will potentially want a new OS on their phones now that both iOS and Android are getting a tad stale. ]
