Top 10 Mobile Operating System

a very small list of mobile OS is available right now with stable support and hopefully long term presence in future.

Every OS perform the very same function with a different methods to execute them. with bare minimum need of handling your calls , messaging, internet connectivity and instant messaging (which every OS perform a great job in doing them) you need a proper hardware to squeeze best from the OS.
If you are using IOS (you are getting world class hardware along) you will find it more synchronized and easy to use if you have other apple devices.

1. Google Android OS

Simply Android, Google Android OS is the most popular open-source software created by Android, Inc. and was purchased by Google, Inc. If you have an android phone, you are familiar with the Google Play (formerly known as Android Market) where you can download ranges of apps for free or for a fee. It is estimated to have 700 000 apps registered there. Too many right?
Current versions of android are as follows: Donut, Éclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean. Did you see it? letters starts with D E F G H I and J. So we may assume the next version starts with letter K and guess what it is.Tadaa – Key Lime Pie. Haven’t eaten it.

One of known smartphones running on Android are Samsung Smartphones.

2. Apple iOS

Yes. Anybody knows it. If you are an iPhone or iPad user you know what I mean. The smartphones from apple uses the iOS software. Unlike Android, iOS not an opensource software.
Users that I interviewed [I’m an android user/programmer – sorry :-)] applauds iOS’s performance – fast, smooth, and it doesn’t slows down. Worth the price they said. But we can also consider int hardware for good performance.
Visit Apple Store for more info.
It’s the Apple’s product that beats the Research In Motion’s BlackBerry. And talking about BlackBerry.

What I like with Ubuntu is its simplicity and elegance. I run Ubuntu together with my Windows operating system. Simple, elegant, and free.
“Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning ‘humanity to others’. It also means ‘I am what I am because of who we all are’. The Ubuntu operating system brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the world of computers.” – So they say. About Ubuntu.
