There’s a storm brewing in the ever raging battle between Windows Mobile, iOS and Android. Strip away the hardware (can’t with iPhone, we know but hear it out), and you’re left with the Operating System and its set of standard features. We’ve reported earlier that smartphones have begun to dominate “feature phones”, and it’s pretty fair to say that we’ve become accustomed to certain standard tools and features that belong on every smartphone we buy.
PCWorld recently did an article outlining the features between Windows Phone 7, Apple iOS and Google Android. It is clear to anyone who reads this article who the real winner is in the OS world for feature sets. In fact, out of all the features compared, the only one that Android didn’t have was “Silverlight Support”, which doesn’t los it any points because neither iOS or Windows Phone 7 support it either. (LOL, I know, you’d think Microsoft would build that in since they developed them both)
The article goes on to point out some features that iOS and Windows Phone 7 just added, or recently added that Android has had since day one such as “Copy/Paste” functionality. Another that Android has and Windows7 is moving towards is an active customizable home screen and application widgets. iOS does not support either.
Yes, it’s very fair to say that Android is leading the pack of mobile operating systems and puts constant strides in improving features for our benefit. They actually listen to what the users want and build it, unlike it’s competitors.
