New kids in town: Mobile OS

Existem alguns sistemas operativos móveis que estão prontos para chegar ao mercado e fazer concorrência ao Android, iOS e Windows Phone.
Enquanto navegava pelo YouTube encontrei uma playlist feita pela Nixie Pixel que aborda os novos sistemas, Ubuntu Touch, Tizen , Firefox OS, e Sailfish.

There are a few new mobile operatings systems ready to assault the market and make the life harder for Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
While was surfing in the Youtube yesterday I found a playlist made by Nixie Pixel about the new systems,  Ubuntu Touch, Tizen , Firefox OS, e Sailfish.

Com os vídeos deixo-vos uma pequena introdução a cada um deles.

With the videos I let you a small introduction about each one.

 

Ubuntu Touch

Ubuntu Touch é uma interface gráfica para desenvolvida sobre o Ubunto pela Canonical para SmartPhones e tablets.

Tem por base a interface Unity e várias frameworks originalmente desenvolvidas para o Maemo e MeeGo. Utilizando libhybris o sistema pode ser utilizado com kernels Linux utilizados no Android, o que facilita a sua portabilidade para os SmartPhones Android mais recentes.

O Ubuntu Touch utiliza no seu core as mesmas tecnologias do Ubuntu Desktop o que faz com que as aplicações desenvolvidas para as versões mais recentes funcionem em ambas as plataformas. Os dispositivos Ubuntu touch podem ser transformados na versão Desktop quando ligados a uma station dock.

Ubuntu Touch is a mobile interface for Ubuntu developed by Canonical. The interface is designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

It’s based in the desktop Unity interface and in various software frameworks originally developed for Maemo and MeeGo. Utilizing libhybris the system can often be used with Linux kernels used in Android, which makes it easily ported to most recent Android smartphones.

Ubuntu Touch utilizes the same core technologies as the Ubuntu Desktop, so applications designed for the latter platform run on the former and vice versa. Ubuntu Touch devices can be equipped with a full Ubuntu session and may change into a full desktop operating system when plugged into a docking station.

 

Tizen

O Tizen é um sistema operativo open source desenvolvido para  smartphones, tablets e smart TVs que pretende manter a consistência de utilização entre os vários dispositivos. Os principais componentes deste sistema são o kernel Linux e o WebKit runtime.

O desenvolvimento de aplicações para o Tizen é feito com base em JavaScript, JQuery, JQuery Mobile eHTML5. Desde a versão 2.0 a framework incorpora também as bases da plataforma Bada.

Tizen is an operating system for devices including smartphones, tablets, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) devices, and smart TVs. It is an open source system that aims to offer a consistent user experience across devices. Tizen’s main components are the Linux kernel and the WebKit runtime.

Tizen provides application development tools based on the JavaScript libraries jQuery, JQuery Mobile and HTML5. Since version 2.0 native application framework is also available, based on Open Services Platform from the Bada platform.

 

Firefox OS

Firefox OS, também conhecido por B2G ou Boot to Gecko é um sistema operativo open source baseado em Linux para SmartPhones e tablets desenvolvido pela Mozilla. Foi desenvolvido para permitir que as aplicações HTML5 comuniquem directamente com o hardware usando JavaScript e outras web APIs. Já se encontra disponível em Espanha com o ZTE Open, durante a fase de desenvolvimento foi mostrado em dispositivos Android e no Raspberry Pi.

Firefox OS, also known as B2G or Boot to Gecko is a Linux-based open-source operating system for smartphones and tablets developed by Mozilla. It is designed to allow HTML5 applications to communicate directly with the device’s hardware using JavaScript and open web APIs. It is currently available in Spain on the ZTE Open, during the developing phase it was demonstrated on Android-compatible smartphones and Raspberry Pi.

 

Sailfish

O Sailfish é um sistema baseado em Linux desenvolvido pela Jolla suportado pela Sailfish Alliance. Está a ser preparado para ser utilizado nos SmartPhones da Jolla, mas também poderá suportar outras categorias de dispositivos.

O SO Sailfish e o SDK tem como base o core do MER que é um renascimento do core do MeeGo o sistema operativo projectado pela Nokia, Intel e Linux Faundation entre outros. O Sailfish inclui uma interface multi-tarefa com que se pretende diferenciar dos SmartPhones Android e iOS.

Sailfish is a Linux-based mobile operating system developed by Jolla supported by the Sailfish Alliance. It is to be used in upcoming smartphones by Jolla, although it is primarily targeted at mobile phones, it is also intended to support other categories of devices.

The Sailfish OS and the Sailfish SDK are based on the core and the tools of the Mer core which is a revival of the core of the MeeGo operating system project from Nokia, Intel, and the Linux Foundation among others. Sailfish includes a multi-tasking user interface that Jolla intends to use to differentiate its smartphones from others and as a competitive advantage against devices that run Google’s Android or Apple’s iOS.
