Among my many excuses for not having a smartphone is my dislike of the
companies behind the operating systems.
As alternatives to Android, the article mentions:-
Boot to Gecko:
> Boot to Gecko looks impressive so far. The majority of core smartphone features have been implemented and both style and performance are getting there. There is still a long way to go before it's ready for commercial release, though, and mozilla has a hard task on its hands to try and wedge Boot to Gecko into what space is left inbetween Android, iOS, Windows Phone and the rest. Nevertheless, the appeal of a completely open, cross platform OS is clear and we can't wait to check back in six months time to see how things have progressed.

Now, if only they can get rid of Android (or at least the Google bits).
