Let's face it, iOS and Windows Phone lag way behind Android in market share. It may be that it will take other versions of mobile Linux to give Android a real run for its money. I'm a big believer in choice, so I'll be very happy if Android finally gets some real competition in the mobile device marketplace. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with Android per se. It's a fine choice if you want to use it. But I'd very much like it if there were other options based on Linux. Such choice gives consumers more options, and it may force Google to work even harder to improve Android.
