    I made a similar post about a new OS and I think Android and IOS have cemented themselves as the dominant players in a saturated market.

    I would also love to see a new OS come on the market, but I don’t think anyone is going to risk the capital and resources required to make it happen. The market has changed dramatically since the early days. Just my two cents.

    Do you remember then 10 years ago for a 10 years BBos and Symbian was the best and no one really was waiting and nobody needed iOS and Android, but they came and they killed those two little bastards?

    10 years past again, it's time now for the new OS to kill iOS and Android? Who's going to accept this challenge?

    Since UI become similar.. Perhaps BB10 is ready for revival?
    BlackBerry should make an OS based off of a RTOS called QNX. They perhaps they can name this amazing piece of coding "BBX"

    It will be a huge success and sell thousands of units.

    I'm probably missing the humour that was intended in the post, but here's the issue - "huge success" and "sell THOUSANDS of units".

    Unfortunately, to support the cost of developing a new OS, you would need many more than THOUSANDS of sales!

    If there is another consumer OS it will have to be tied to a wider ecosystem. Maybe Amazon could do it if they find a better input system than touch. Perhaps in the bowels of Seattle some are researching neural interfaces and it will spring out in 5-10 years: Alexa Brain.

    The humor is in the first paragraph - which is exactly what RIM said they would do back in October of 2011 in their "BBX" announcement.

    Two months later, they had to rename it BB10.

    The second paragraph was merely an exaggeration of the circumstance.

    Everything in the Great White North frozen tundra is moving slower right now. Eventually @glwerry will get the full magnitude of the statement.

    If @glwerry would just winter in Florida, things would go smoother.... LOL

    Here's a better one than touch, and it's been tried and true: Physical buttons

    My Lovely Bride would happily spend the winter in Florida. Especially if y'all were having a "cold snap", as we could wander about in our shorts mocking 'Mericans who are hiding from the cold.

    Unfortunately, I'm still working for a living ...

    Not really "new", but KaiOS is growing much faster than I would have taught. They took a smartphone OS, and converted it into a feature phone OS. But it also runs a number of "standard" smartphone apps... and the list is growing.

    Reality is that in 2017... 600 million "non-smartphones" were sold, so there is a good sized market there. Last I heard there were over 40 million KaiOS devices sold worldwide.

    KaiOS blurs the lines between Smart and Feature phones...

    Do analysts even make those smartphone OS market share pie charts anymore? Is anything other than Android or iOS even 1%?
