FOR MOBILE DEVELOPERS: Mobile OS and HTML5 – future?

MWC 2013 in Barcelona. Lots of updates and interesting information. You can see a show wrap-up video here.

Since we at Empatika work in a mobile development direction, we became interested in the trend towards the upcoming mobile OSs, such as Tizen, Ubuntu, Firefox OS and Sailfish OS.

We’ve created a presentation that includes:

  1. Marketing analysis (release dates of each OS, their partners, etc.)
  2. Information on these systems: features, technical specifications, framework, etc

In general, it is difficult to talk about their performance, as most of them are available only on emulators.

Our short wrap-up:

Firefox OS:

  • Easy to develop on.
  • There is a working Marketplace.


  • There is an advantage to develop both on a phone and a desktop version.


  • Problems with the UI, but comfortable IDE.


  • Interesting UI and multitasking decisions (including various gestures).
