Am I the only one who feels that with the oncoming of Ubuntu Mobile OS and Jolla (based on and developed by meego devs if ul have heard of it) and amazons own phone. Its going to be way too many OS' and not enough takers?
Personal Opinion : All of them will try and eventually the Big players will but out other OS' and combine the big features with their own. For eg. Microsoft should buy jolla. Makes so much sense.

Don't forget about Tizen but yeah you got a point perhaps there are too many.
However when they come out there may be some good features ( or maybe not )
I think the main competition will come from BB10

I think your point is valid!
But still it's fine for me to have many choices as a consumer. Of course too many OS' will produce a situation where you have to choose between functions and options (and of course apps being developed for the particular os) because you can not have them all. But all in all: at least in my opinion it will lead to some kind of an evolution where only the "best os" will survive. Or at least "the best few". And this evolution will force the surviving OS' to adopt the features and options from the dying ones...
Of course this kind of a scenario is not the most realsitic one (as in history: not the noble party wins wars and gets it's part in the history books, but the stronger one!), but all in all it's just simple competition...

RIM also suffers from this problem, as they simply can't afford to invest enough back into R&D to remain competitive. They are drawing their last breaths bringing BB10 to market. Although BB10 could make a huge splash and turn things around, it is unlikely. I suspect BB10 will do nothing more than slow RIM's downfall.
Microsoft, and to a larger degree Google, can only compete in mobile due to the huge profits they can redirect into subsidizing mobile OS development.

I think Samsung can slowly build up Tizen to the point of being a viable competitor and it's possible for BB10 to bring RIM back to relevance, but I don't expect much out of Jolla, Ubuntu, etc.
