Galen Grumman in Infoworld pits the two most modern smart phone operating systems in an 18 page, side-by-side, head-to-head, advertising laden Deathmatch.
Android has continued to gain strength. The new Froyo version—formally called Android OS 2.2—has become the default alternative to the iPhone for many customers, with broad support by cellular carriers and from Motorola and the Taiwanese hardware makers such as HTC and LG that had previously aligned to Windows Mobile.
Except, as of today, only one Android phone actually runs Android OS 2.2—Google’s own Nexus One. Save yourself 11 pages of Infoworld’s advertising and see the details in ComputerWorld.
And the winner is?
There’s no question which is the better mobile OS: iOS 4 beats Android OS 2.2 in almost every category.
Android OS 2.2 does offer a strong core platform whose UI may be inferior to iOS 4 but is good enough for most users.
Just like Windows.
