Symbian, Android, iPhone OS and touchscreen mobile devices

Have you ever had a Nokia mobile device ? Amazing isn’t it ?? I mean the speakers, the reception, the battery, compatibility, functionality, hardware, etc. Nowadays I think the only thing they lack of is a good Operating System and it’s strange because years ago Symbian was one the best rated Operating Systems. Probably it still is one of the best OS but not for the latest devices and the tendency of them.
What we know is, since the iPhone, all other cell phone manufacturers have created their devices as touch screen oriented. But if you remember the next touch screen device appeared just some week after the iPhone. Obviously other manufacturers already had the technology on their hands before iPhone appeared. Now we are in the middle of a battle between touch screen devices and, for people directly involved in technology, their mobile device must be a touch screen.
I remember that when iPhone came in I had a Nokia device, the N95. Friends of mine bought the iPhone because of the innovation, the brand or just to be updated with the latest devices. But do you remember the first versions of iPhone? They didn’t record video, you couldn’t send MMS, simple things like copy / paste, text selection, flash in camera weren’t available in the phone and don’t even think in more complex things like a video call with a front camera, listening to music by bluetooth or multitasking. All of those things I’ve just mentioned were already available in other devices like Blackberry or Nokia. Anyway, I could try an iPod touch and I liked the way you interact with the device but just that.
I’ve always liked devices with high functionality and the latest in technology: high quality in camera, WiFi and 3G, Bluetooth, touch screen, front camera, a good processor, RAM and internal storage, etc. Nokia devices have all this features but now we have a very very important new feature in mobile devices: The Operating System.
New Operating Systems must match the devices and their hardware. iPhone came in with the iPhone OS, Nokia uses Symbian OS and in some cases MeeGo, we have some HTC and LG touch screen devices with Windows Mobile OS and, of course, we have the Android OS.
Personally I can say that Android is one of the best Google’s movements. It is an extraordinary operating system with a lot of new features and the technology needed in touch screen devices. It has a completely transparent integration with Google services. If you have Google account you’ll love the feature. It also has synchronization for social services like facebook, twitter, flickr, a lot of widgets, home screens and much more.
Years or even months ago we used to choose a mobile device by its brand, functionality now I think we’ve started choosing the phones by its Operating System and hardware quality.I recently update the operating system version of my Xperia X10 and just with the update it behaves like a completely different phone. Many more functions, integration with services, much better video quality, etc.
Also the things with iPhone have changed. Apple has created an iPhone much more powerful than previous versions. Now it records video in HD, it has the face time for video calls, you can also send MMS, it has a front camera and all the new features you already know. I can say that iPhone 4 is a good device and it’s ready to confront other mobile devices like HTC Desire HD, HTC Evo 4G, Samsung I909 Galaxy S, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, Nokia N8 and many more.
I’ve always thought there is a device for each person and you should acquire it according to your needs. If you will never use the camera why buy a smartphone with 8 Megapixels camera and HD recording? or if you don’t have twitter, facebook or event google account you definitely don’t need an Android device. If you’re looking for an easy interaction with the mobile or intuitive controls you could buy an iPhone.
