You may be wondering why anyone would want to invest in developing another mobile OS.

The team is reportedly made up of ex-Nokia employees, among other workers. Huawei seems to have taken in a number of ex-Nokia employees.
How Viable is another mobile OS?
Time will tell whether or not the OS will ever be seen on commercial phones. Unless it is revolutionary in a similar way that iOS and Android were many years ago, it will have no chance at success in the market. Samsung’s Tizen OS is yet to gain significant marketshare till date. However, Samsung’s continual polishing of the OS may yet pay off for them some day when it may be needed to call Google’s bluff.
