So how many Mobile Operating Systems can the market support. It used to be that each phone manufacturer built their own or modified someone else's. They were built for calling people and storing contacts. Pretty simple stuff.
Then came the ”Smart Phone”
The smart phone was "smarter" right? It allowed you to sync your phone to your computer. The smart phone could allow you to do e-mail, surf the web and most of all text messaging was born. When Apple's iPhone hit the scene add music and movie playback to that list, as well as storing photo. The phone was morphing into a mini computer, one that had to work with your desktop or laptop. That's where the iOS has excelled and Android is trying to do the same.
