I don't think putting out a great OS matters anymore. iOS and android have established themselves as dominant. MS now has a great OS for windows phone and they can't even get any market share. Ubuntu and mozilla are going to be releasing mobile OS's there just isn't room for all of them.

PS I love the idea of Ubuntu mobile but think its also doomed to failure.

Really? Windows phone is a failure, because it is a pain to use[IE cumbersome], visually unappealing and worse than iOS were restrictions are concerned. Android is the best and most flexible mobile OS available.

"Failure" is term that is highly subjective and requires validating reasoning. MS wants Windows Phone to dominate the market. Not likely going to happen. Ubuntu wants to make a presence in the market and give people an alternative. This is very much the same premise for their desktop PC and tablet efforts. And in that capacity, they have achieved great success! They will likely do the same in the phone arena. Mozilla with the Firefox OS for phones is aiming at the same goal. And if either make a rom for my phone[Galaxy S Relay], I'll be trying them out and even sticking with them if they work well. So one can hardly doom them to failure based their respective goal sets.
