Android Vs. IOS Vs Windows Mobile 7: Company Shootout

The iPhone and Android phones are pecking at the BlackBerry market share like vultures on roadkill, especially in the walls of the company.

The BlackBerry phones, BlackBerry OS 7 and improved, as well as promising, the BBX consolidated platform, and even an Apple-esque leaks about the new phone (codenamed London) are not sufficient to satisfy your end-users, attract new mobile applications, and influenced by a great cultural change. Even Windows Phone 7 is gaining momentum, thanks to the engaging user experience, as well as a healthy and growing list of applications.

Corporate IT is finally changing its position on the world's mobile-centric BlackBerry. Or, as Eric Zeman, InformationWeek recently declared: "Since the iPhone replaces BlackBerry Boardroom, iPass says."

It is time to take a closer look at the candidates to replace BlackBerry. For several weeks, I tested the iPhone 4S (AT & T), Google Android (Gingerbread version) running on a Samsung Galaxy SII (version T-Mobile and the other AT & T) and run Windows Phone 7.5 on a radar 4G HTC (T-Mobile) and Nokia Lumia 800 (not available in the U.S. yet).

I tried to actually use the phone every day, rather than spending time researching the different glasses and try all its features. In other words, this comparison focuses on ease of use and convenience of every platform. In fact, there are many useful features that I found and could not find room for this comparison. I hope to share some of the comments section of our readers' as well.

They are, in fact, the BlackBerry user through and through. I used one in years past, sometimes to test some of the other platforms. I recently moved my full-time loyalty to the iPhone smartphone, 4S, thanks for shedding of corporate IT policy, the parent company of InformationWeek, TechWeb.

I did my best to mimic the experience of the phone in any environment. It 'a little' harder than it sounds, because many of the underlying services - notifications, location-based services, social networking integration, and so on - different from each other. Tongue and all of them to use Wi-Fi, GPS, mobile communications and applications.

Smartphone choice comes down to a handful of elements: the design, overall user experience, business support available applications and security, and a mixed bag of other features - including the camera, cloud services, voice activated services, and performance issues such as the speed of the browser.

There is one more thing: Some buyers care much about the concepts of transparency - the ability to run applications that want to use the phone with any network, change the phone without any restrictions. Other buyers want only the most simple, error-free experience, and do not want to deviate from the preset choices. Neither is wrong, it's just a personal decision, and tell the truth, some do not even know that it is a choice that can be done.

In this regard, Apple and Google sit on opposite ends of the spectrum, the one that controls all the applications on the mobile operating system (Apple), the other creates a somewhat 'open, which is used in many mobile ecosystem quite easy to apply ( Google). Microsoft is sitting in the middle, choosing not to produce phones (for now), but very strict rules about the hardware operating system works.

These are difficult decisions, especially since most people have to live with the choice of two years (the duration of contracts for standard transport) in these two years, everything changes again dramatically.

You can not go wrong with any of these platforms, from an end user perspective. I chose the iPhone for now because it marries my personal and professional a manner which may amount to another platform altogether. But Android is damn close, and with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), it can actually exceed iOS. In fact, if Samsung Galaxy Nexus is an even better version of the Samsung Galaxy SII, I would have waited to make my final choice. And in another year, keep it as Nokia and other manufacturers best equipment for Windows Phone 7 as Microsoft continues to improve its operating system provided with Apollo, I regret my choice again.
