With Windows Phone 7 nearly ready for market, the competition in smartphones has escalated to the next tier. Google Android has momentum on its side, while Apple has profit margins on its side.

Apple’s iOS , Google’s Android OS and Windows Phone 7 OS are currently the best mobile operating systems available in the market. So,  let’s compare these three operating systems below, which can help you take a wise decision while buying these smartphones.

Now the competition is tight in the Smartphone market and each of the companies are coming up with new solutions and strategies to target users and increase their market share.

Microsoft’s first attempt to come back to the market has been fair with having been more user centric and allowing users to use what they want; however, to survive they have to advance further.

Android seems to be a strong and aggressive competitor to all; however, it is suspected that security issues will withhold many users from using Android.

It seems Apple is still leading the way and will be running to swallow market share by offering acceptable security, privacy, ease of use, elegance, creativity, and beauty in design.  Apple seems to be an expert when it comes to one of the most important factors of the future of Mobile Technologies: “Usability combined with simplicity”.  The question now becomes, “How long will this suffice, before the next breakthrough technology dominates the market?”

What’s more, I would like to show you some smartphones  with Windows Phone OS and Android OS which you may  like, just have a look.
