As a bit of a phone geek im often asked what os I prefer. Be it apple’s IOS, Rim’s BB os or Googles android. The truth is im just looking for the one that can combine all my needs. I need the email and business power or the Blackberry with the media fun of the iphone and throw a little open source crazy hardware spec android fun in there too.
As we continue to see phones become increasingly powerful (I actually used the words” it only has a 1ghz processor” today). We are faced with the facts that there are no killer spec devices and must however think about the os that drives that hardware.
Nokia is not a big player in the smartphone game in the US but is known for the amazingly good hardware they make. Their new model N8 has a 12 mp camera and all the bells and whistles you can shake a stick at… but attached to the aging OS that is symbian its dead on arrival.
There is a reason that the position of useability director was created in alot of these mobile companies, people want not only good hardware but a OS that is at once transparent but incredibly powerful..
So let’s hear what you all think about the upcoming OS war.. what do you see as a must have feature in YOUR next mobile operating system?
Sound off…. I will be over here huggin my phone.
