In recent times, there has been considerable increase in the number of mobile devices that people use – and with it the options for operating platforms for these devices have also increased. Our target here will be to let you know about some of the common operating systems which are nowadays used in mobile devices and their positive as well as negative features.

Android OS

Android is based on one of the Linux kernel’s modified versions and was purchased by Google from another company. Some of the main advantages of Android OS include being open source, quite powerful, with updates readily available, and a vast marketplace for apps. On the other hand, it has some limitations also: only a limited number of handsets support Android and there are some power management concerns which are yet to be sorted out.

Windows Mobile OS

Windows mobile OS is becoming popular gradually and many phones are coming out loaded with this OS. Some of the main features of this operating system are that is it stable, several programs are available on this OS, the new interface has considerably enhanced touch navigation, syncs well with Google mobile and many handsets are now in the market for this OS.  However, there are some points on which the OS is still lacking such as user friendliness of the interface and slow browser speed.

iPhone OS

iPhone OS is nowadays quite popular and runs on the iPhone, iTouch and the iPad. The good thing about this OS is that it is reliable, there are millions of apps available for download, it features an excellent interface as well as touch navigation, and works quickly and effortlessly when switching between apps. The few things that could really be improved are the prices (devices using the OS tend to be quite expensive) and also the fact the apps can be downloaded from limited places only.

Linux Mobile OS

Linux is an open source operating system the mobile OS has some features which have made it well known. First of all, Linux is free and thus several apps developed for this OS are also available for free; as it is open source, any one can work on developing it further as well as enhance its usability. There is plenty of online support available in different forums and user groups to help you out with your queries or any problems you face while using it.

According to a study conducted by IDC on mobile operating systems, Android Phone and Windows 7 would be pretty far ahead iOS models, by 2015. It also gives accurate predictions of market shares of each of the actors in this platform that continues to grow.

Thus, analysis (predictions?) conducted by IDC include not only a market expected to double in 2011, with no less than 450 million smartphones sold this year, but also more precise figures on the next 4 years.

As a result, Android would have 45.4% market share in 2015, while Apple would reap 15.3% while Microsoft would make a nice breakthrough, with 20.9% market share.

Symbian just sink straight down, with a tiny 0.2% market share by four years. Normal, since Microsoft and its agreement with Nokia, is expected to change this.

In light of these figures, it is difficult to assume anything in the future on the market very volatile operating systems for smartphones. These evolving in advertisements and offers from manufacturers. See you in 2015 to assess the veracity (or not) of these predictions!
