< /p>Although BB10 and BBOS are no longer supported, Blackberry ideas continued to exist on the Android platform with TCL technologies and Blackberry embedded software, including the same Blackberry Hub. In the end, BB10 was a decent mobile OS that so many users liked.
The Linux Foundation created Tizen in 2011 as a successor to the MeeGo OS, a joint project of Intel and Nokia. The initial development of Tizen was handled by Samsung and Intel. Their idea was to focus not only on smartphones, but also on other platforms - netbooks, tablets, smart TVs.After two years of development, in 2013, Samsung announced the release of several phones under the Tizen OS with the Bada OS built into it, previously developed by the company. Since then, Samsung has been using Tizen in its smart watches, and in addition, this OS has hit several smartphones and IoT devices.Despite the fact that Samsung has achieved success with Tizen in its smart watches and TVs, it has not managed to gain a foothold on smartphones. Although, unlike any other mobile operating system on our list, Tizen is still in development, including for smartphones – so the end has not yet been put on it.Samsung's latest Tizen - based phone, the Samsung Z4, was released in mid - 2017, but it is likely that the company will continue to develop this OS. If Samsung ever finds itself in the same position as Huawei right now, it will have a backup plan.webOSPalm's mobile development began back in 2007 with the introduction of Palm OS. Two years later, Palm announced the release of webOS, the company's new mobile operating system. It first appeared on Palm Pre.Palm managed to release several more phones before it was acquired by HP in 2010. Unfortunately, after the merger of the companies, there was no special development of Palm's ideas. HP planned to implement webOS not only in mobile devices and tablets, but also in other IoT gadgets as a worthy alternative to Android, but the company has not made any progress in this direction.With webOS on board, HP released the HP Veer and HP Pre 3 phones, as well as the HP TouchPad tablet. This happened back in 2011, and the last update for these devices was released in January 2012.Before the release of this update, HP posted the webOS open source code online so that the community could develop it further. In 2013, LG bought webOS from HP for use in its smart TVs. Since then, webOS has managed to get to other IoT devices.Experimenters who want to get familiar with webOS can try it out in the form of LuneOS, an updated version available for some phones.Windows 10 MobileThe list of alternatives to iOS and Android could not fail to include the Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile operating systems. Their history began in 2010 with the first release of the phone for Windows Phone. Then, in the middle of the decade, the legacy OS was replaced by Windows 10 Mobile.
Windows 10 Mobile looked and functioned very much like its predecessor, but it was better polished and offered a deeper integration of the main screen of the phone with the similarity of the desktop PC. The main advantage of Microsoft was the idea that the smartphone could turn into a smaller version of the computer. As a result, Microsoft's mobile OS was perhaps the closest thing to breaking the lead of Google and Apple.Unfortunately, both Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile have not reached the heights. Two years later, Microsoft stopped developing Windows 10 Mobile, and the platform effectively died.However, Microsoft is not completely out of the game in the mobile market. The company recently announced the Surface Duo, an Android-based folding smartphone that may usher in a new era of Microsoft's mobile ideas.
