An operating system that is based on open source software is one that is generally free for anyone.
It is Google’s free, open-source cellphone operating system which allows developers to access unlocked hardware and develop new programs as they wish. So you can see mobile operating system’s name and version from setting menu and while buying a new phone, the operating system can be found the handset’s specifications information.

Sailfish, the Linux-based mobile operating system developed by Jolla, has come top of TechWeekEurope’s “alternative” mobile OS poll. The promising open source project from Finland has beaten off some serious competition, including both the recently-announced Ubuntu for phones and Mozilla’s HTML5-powered wonder Firefox OS. Only six out of 4,322 voters wanted to test out Android rival Aliyun, developed by Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba. It is a fact of life that Google and Apple jointly rule the mobile operating system kingdom.
However, in the last two years, plenty of feisty, ambitious newcomers have been trying to bite off a piece of the tasty mobile pie and break the “duopoly”. Born from the ashes of MeeGo, Sailfish was launched just a few months ago, but has already managed to attract an impressive following.


Sailfish developer Jolla was founded by several former Nokia engineers, after the promising MeeGo project was abandoned in favour of Windows Phone. Ubuntu for phones, developed by Canonical, was the second most popular choice in the poll, with over a third (34 percent) of our readers excited by the ability to carry a desktop OS in their pocket.
The smartphone version of the most popular Linux distribution in the world will be able to run both HTML5 and native apps, and transform into a fully featured PC once connected to a keyboard and monitor. Firefox OS, the open source alternative to Android based entirely on HTML5, came third with nine percent of the votes. Tizen, another Linux-based system scheduled for release this year, got four percent of the vote, and WebOS, a similar project run by HP, concluded the poll with 51 votes. With one new mobile OS already released, and at least three more coming out in the next few months, 2013 looks like it is going to be an interesting year for smartphones and tablets.

A mobile OS is responsible for identifying and defining mobile device features and functions, including keypads, application synchronization, email, thumbwheel and text messaging.
Linux is one of the most popular open source systems and it is used in a number of mobile settings. Windows Phone comes with a mobile-optimized version of the Internet Explorer for accessing the web, and Exchange, which supports secure corporate e-mail accounts with push support.


The Apple iOS is not allowed to be used in third party systems, so you will only be able to use it on products made by Apple.
According to the poll, 41 percent of our readers would like to give the multi-platform OS a try. The OS is due to appear in China first, thanks to a sales and distribution deal with D.Phone Group, the region’s largest mobile phone retail chain. Despite these brilliant features, Canonical is yet to sign up a single manufacturer to try its OS.
The first “Firephones”, made by Chinese manufacturer ZTE, are expected to hit the European store shelves later this year. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Alibaba’s Aliyun, which is being developed primarily for the Chinese market, didn’t perform well.
